Ducati’s supermotard-on-steroids, the Hypermotard. has been terrorizing the for a couple of years now, a bike that became after it made a sensational at the 2005 EICMA show in Aimed at marrying some of the short-wheelbase, low-weight feel of a with the grunt of a 100-horsepower motor and unmistakeable Ducati style, the Hypermotard is an absolute machine.

It’s also fairly though, which is why Ducati just given it a much affordable little brother. The 796 will sneak in under using a torqued-up version of the 696 engine and boasting both weight and a lighter clutch the 1100.

The last time I a leg over an 1100 Hypermotard, my was that it was tall, tiny and a of fun, the brakes putting it on its as quickly as the throttle lifted its wheel. For a short-range hooligan it seemed to tick all the right — even if it was a little in the ‘bars for serious traffic (particularly given those side mirrors).

But its pricing still put it well the boutique level — you can get a lot of bike for US$12 grand other manufacturers. So this new (Hyperminitard? Hypomotard?

Diapermotard?) 796 look like a much attractive option to buyers at its price point.

The 796 motor, developed from the 696 engine, makes about the horsepower as the donor bike, at It’s up a healthy 6 foot-pounds of though, at 56lb/ft, reflecting the that it’s designed to be harder at street speeds.

The action APTC clutch make a nice change the original Hypermotard’s clutch which always seemed a bit of a test of manhood to me. Bikes the Hypermotard seem to excel as weapons in my mind — seats and poor tank tend to make them tourers — so a nice, clutch is almost mandatory.

The Hypermotard 796 keeps its weight Ducati tell us, by means of a set of triple clamps and a reworked that gets rid of most of the forged components. The resulting (368 lb) motorcycle should light, agile and fun.

The Juniormotard’s looks are very to its big brother’s, retaining the single-sided barkbuster-mounted indicators and mirrors and the flat beak of the 1100. So the too, should be one of those that feels like absolutely nothing in front of you as you a bit of a flying carpet feeling.
