No surprise, then, Ducati has introduced the 2010 796 . The original 1100 hypersport/supermotard more pulses than a of umbrella girls at the Milan in 2005, winning Best of Since hitting showrooms in it has been a top seller. Ducati’s American distributor pushed for the Hy-mo, which is the only besides the Monster 696 priced $10,000.

Just prior to the 2009 Show, we flew to Ducati’s in Bologna, Italy, to evaluate the 796 on its turf.

Ducati designed an 803cc desmodromic two-valve, L-twin engine for the Hypermotard 796 an 88mm x 66mm bore/… and a ratio of 11:1.
