two years after the mad Hypermotard wheelied down its first street, Ducati has given it an engine and jettisoned an amazing

Now generally I’m not especially charging around race on bikes with long suspension. They tend to get on the entry as the suspension compresses, run on the exits and offer less at the same time as being sensitive to handlebar inputs. will be why MotoGP bikes look like motocrossers

So while Sardinia, sunshine, the Mores circuit and a pair of Hypermotards is hardly the stuff of I wasn`t expecting to enjoy as much as if something more track suited had been nonchalantly on its sidestand in the pitlane.

It was to see the Hypermotard there at all. not in the sense that I thought be a row of Harleys outside, more the Hypermotard was only introduced two and a years ago, and while the are pulling back from traditional bi-annual upgrades of short shelf-life sports and drawing in the horns, Ducati is up the new models and busy upgrading the ones, even though expect something like the to be relatively unchanged for maybe years.

It`s not merely cosmetic In total the bike has lost (7kg), with 3.9lb of that coming from the The frame looks the familiar steel trellis but it`s redesigned at the rear with the old forged components replaced more tubular steel. additional weight has been through a redesign of the wiring so they`re clearly taking seriously.

Other chassis including the fitment of Streetfighter and dash.

But it`s the engine where the stuff has happened, with 5kg being shed in a rework big enough for Ducati to call an all new engine. The crankcases are now cast a Vacural technique which for thinner walls without weaknesses. But the cases are completely anyway and are substantially more then before, while engine covers and the alternator compact and lighter rare magnets.

The cylinder heads are new and deeper oil baths to keep the gear cool and reshaped and exhaust ports for better gas and in fact the heads` oil cooling is so more effective, Ducati has an oil cooler which has 85 per cent cooling area than There are revised cam profiles and a new crown shape which combustion more efficient by the compression ratio from to 11.3:1, to the point where has been able to return to a spark plug per cylinder, the old model had two.

Further weight has been by using a lightweight, 848-style The result is a 5bhp increase in to 95bhp (69.9kW), with a more torque.

There are two the Hypermotard 1100 Evo and the SP version, has an Öhlins rear shock, spec 50mm Marzocchi Monobloc Brembo front and detailing such as carbon cambelt covers. The SP sits higher than the Evo and has more travel front and rear, as as 20mm higher bars, Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres and datalogging system, otherwise the same as the Evo, although for our Ducati fitted the optional exhaust, releasing another Evo remained stock though.

The over the old model have a substantial difference, and to exactly the I was concerned about as I lined up for the ride. I took the SP out first the white one in the images) and for the first on a bike of this type felt at home and comfortable on it.

The steering is more precise and now the goes exactly where you it both under braking and the power on, and while it still eagerly to bar pressure it no longer flighty. The suspension works coping with on-off changes, rapid left-right and severe braking without like it`s going to up and tip you off. That`s especially considering the huge power of the which are capable of hauling up bike as effectively as just anything I`ve ridden.

The Evo the fine precision of the SP and does to push wider on corner but it`s still a handy on the track. It`s a little and will make a better bike, but for once I think is less important as few riders who a Hypermotard will want manners if that means sharpness and track ability. hardly a sensible option to with, is it?

In fact it was the introduction of the less Hypermotard 796 which allowed to sharpen the focus of the 1100 the 796 is for those who like the look but not the while the 1100 is for the performance

The engine meanwhile is absolutely It`s dripping with in the low and mid ranges, and despite being still loves being It doesn`t mind if you get your wrong and in fact often at Mores where I found up early and relying on the torque was as quick as red-lining it everywhere.

It`s not a sensible bike If this was your only you`d not be the sort to go touring or very far from home at as the 2.73 gallon (12.4 3.3 gallon US) tank will you`re refilling every 80 or so. And it`s not cheap either, the Evo priced at around £9,100 and the SP at a £10,300.

But if this is the sort of you want, then this is your sort of bike.
