Ducati introduces the white color for the Hypermotard The models are latest to receive the now Ducati color which has made the Ducati 848 and Ducati 696 with even greater

The fiery Red Ducati color only cover the frame the new carbon-grey finish is applied to the engine castings of the simple 1100.

If your momma was hip to this is the kind of bike she want you to stay away

I warned you about hanging out that dirtbike on steroids, say. Your license handle another Exhibition of or Reckless Driving charge!

but shes more fun than a at Six Flags! youd say if you just had most recent hit in your for a few weeks.

Take a ride on a 1100S, and you will also back to past scenes of life when you were a bit of a rebel. It mightve been spitballs shot across a at your buddy, or perhaps an unsuspecting driver with a snowball. Riders who once the thrill of general mischief as this will find the a willing and prodding accomplice in tomfoolery you still have through your veins.

aboard the HM, there is a constant with the devil on your coercing you to jump curbs and monster wheelies. There are two to come to a stop: You either out the aggressive Brembo front for a quick halt with the wheel in the air, or you can just jam on the modulatable rear brake for a crossed-up stop. This is versatile!

You know the Hypermotard is going to be a kind of ride from the you straddle the rambunctious steed. The trellis frame and Desmo say Ducati, but the riding position something more akin to

In fact, despite the many Ducati cues and several shared with other from the Bologna-based company, new Hypermotard delivers a distinct experience. The first the thing you after the tall seat is the forward that is almost unencumbered by any view of the bike. and cool.

Strange and cool, is the rakish and minimal bodywork proudly displays the nicely motor that is clean of exposed wiring and hoses, and it even cooler with the Ss fiber cam-belt covers. The black composite also this new-age hooligan in its lower front fender, protectors and tailsection pieces you opt for the less expensive standard that instead has gauche components.

The design of the Hypermotard from the pen of Ducatis controversial Pierre Terblanche, first in November of 2005 as a concept It was notable in two ways: it was an immediate hit the crowds at motorcycle shows and it relatively easy to put into Not long afterward, Ducati that wed be seeing the inspirational new on showroom floors around the

Terblanches gorgeous 1993 and his retro-cool SportClassics are his greatest successes, but this new Hypermotard has to rank up as one of his best. This oozes personality, proving to be both butch and beautiful. Its schnoz of a front fender be a bit awkward, but its derriere is delicious its graceful pair of aluminum-capped canisters under the tail and a swingarm that shows off sweet pinstriped rear

Without the ungracefulness of a liquid-cooled radiator and attendant plumbing to the view, this Eddie of motorcycles is a pleasure to peruse sipping a hot coffee or a cold The Hypermotard S like our test also has the added eye candy of an shock and anti-stiction Diamond-Like (DLC) on the sliders of the beefy Marzocchi fork; the run-of-the-mill makes due with a non-DLC and a Sachs shock, both adjustable, for a retail price lower than the $13,995 of the S version.

Perhaps the most important to the S is its forged-aluminum Marchesini wheels are lighter than the cast-aluminum on the standard HM. There is no better to lose weight than a motorcycles wheels, as it allows a to react quicker to road and significantly lessens steering by reducing rotational inertia.

But the wide motocross-style handlebar, a rider is unlikely to complain heavy steering. Conservative (a 24.0-degree rake) prevents it being too twitchy, but it is nonetheless responsive to steering inputs. Its so quick to respond that I turned in too early at many before I became acclimated to its reflexes.

Its worth noting the HMs 57.3-inch wheelbase is more an inch shorter than of a Honda CRF450R motocrosser.

playing a role in the HMs agility is its light weight. Though its claimed dry weight will you off the double jumps at the MX track, its a 42 lbs lighter than the mechanically Multistrada 1100 we tested in our Air-Cooled Twins Naked The standard HM, without the Ss carbon and forged wheels, scales in an extra 5 lbs.

Standard on the S model is a stellar set of brakes. Up are the same high-spec Brembo calipers seen on the 1098, from a single casting for responses. Unlike the 1098s 330mm rotors, the Hypermotard more modest 305mm that readily handle the of the lower velocities of this of bike.

Initial bite is and can catch out the unwary, but aiding lever feel are braided-steel lines and a radial-pump master The standard Hypermotard is fitted cheaper two-piece Brembo

Another distinct aspect of the brand is the jingle-jangle of its dry-clutch A wet clutch such as the Multistradas is than the HMs, but that do for this bike. It, says is the popular preference of thousands of the world over. In this the dry clutch has a 30% lighter pull to a more efficient lever and a grippier clutch-plate friction that allows lighter springs.

It also weighs 3.5 lbs than the oil-bathed clutch in the Further, the transmissions primary gears have been with a new lightweight construction.

away from a stop, the dry clutch proved to be surprisingly to modulate via its radial-pump hydraulic cylinder. Its easy to balance the of drive through the clutch allowing a gentle hover of the tire across any intersection, and its clutch plates arent as as Ducatis of yore. Wheelies at will in first gear.

A tug on the in second will do the same.

most current race-replica the Hypermotard isnt hindered by tall gearing. In fact, its is as short as any Ducati Ive ridden. A accelerating rider can short-shift the V-Twin into fourth before reaching 50 mph, that there is plenty of torque multiplication from the gearing to maximize grunt tight corner exits or quick blast of power to the mindless cell-phone talker who to occupy your lane.

For reason, the Hypermotards gearbox to be smoother and less notchy the box in our Multistrada test bike. neutral is easy to access.

up to speed, youll soon out that 80 miles-per is the Hypermotards limit, so the bikes short isnt an issue at that Pushing beyond 80, the dirtbike-like position is fighting a losing with aerodynamics, so this be the ideal mount for blasts Nevada or Nebraska.

But steer the Hypermotard in the direction of a canyon road and youll a road detangler unlike youve tried before. It effortlessly into the tightest then catapults out of corners the engines extremely accessible and street-friendly gearing working even if the peak output the 1078cc two-valve V-Twin is by any 600cc four-cylinder supersport Japan Inc.

The tidy tank/airbox cover seems far away, and its small size is the reason why the identical engine in the is claimed to crank out 5 extra The small airbox strangles power — one of the many the bikes design forces. we didnt get a chance to dyno our HM, we about 75 horses at the rear because our MTS produced 80.

Torque be unaffected, so all of the MTSs 65 ft-lbs are in at a punchy 4800 rpm.

Not an undersized airbox, the Motard is hindered by a petite 3.28-gallon tank that ensures be scoping out a Chevron station 100 miles. This isnt too of an inconvenience, as the negligible support the narrow seat will an early rest stop

The HMs saddle is yet another area in ergonomic compromises were for the sake of style. To look the of a supermoto machine, the seat styling cues from forcing a fairly lofty that is said to be 33.3 but feels taller. Its also awkwardly forward. A narrow allows legs a straight at the pavement, but rider comfort be gratefully enhanced by a lower, seat.

Surprisingly, the passenger is relatively cush, and integrated built into the tailsection a welcome measure of security. And of hands, we must applaud for its ingenious hand-guards that incorporate LED turnsignals while shelter for digits.

As you might imagine, the hlins/Marzocchi offers supple suspension blessed with a generous 6.5 of travel up front and 5.6 at the rear. damping was initially on the stiff a couple of clicker adjustments out the ride nicely, especially backing off the spring preload the rear shock. Incomprehensively, the that compresses the shocks is made from the same material we noticed on the 1098S, not the more durable steel used on most shocks.

The deserves kudos for its instrumentation is amazingly compact for all its capabilities. The speedometer is easy to read and in conjunction with a bar-graph LCD A switch on the left handlebar can through several different including a clock, oil temp, voltage, reserve fuel and a lap-timer.

In addition, the Hypermotard equipped to receive the Ducati Analyzer (DDA) data-acquisition that is available as a Ducati accessory. The tach is difficult to at a glance, but the V-Twins clearly torque peak makes rev checks superfluous.

The Hypermotards design compromise is the arrangement of its folding mirrors. While offer a decent view (spoiled slightly by blurry at certain rpm) and have a novelty factor, they add to the bikes already considerable Lane-splitting Californians will be most, but anyone will be a bit when they vibrate from their intended

And youll need orangutan to be able to reach the right-side with your left while riding. We cant but imagine a better system if the could be flipped upward instead of out to the sides. (If some business out there invents a system, Ill be happy to accept a 5% A simpler solution would be to a kit from Ducati that the mirrors inboard of the grips for $60.

But to … about things floppy mirrors or a small tank or a lack of touring would be to miss the Hypermotards altogether. This isnt homely multi-tool to gracelessly into commuter traffic if it requires less maintenance older Ducs and comes a two-year warrantee).

Instead, the HM is a scalpel that would be at home slicing up the 318 tight of the Tail of the Dragon, blatting its V-Twin soundtrack across the And its visual presence and graceful cant help but make its feel special, as evidenced by the head-turning it caused during our

But the most enduring personality of the Hypermotard is its unerring ability to a rider in a way that no other can match. Its able to inspire from anyone with a of mischief in their blood. If are part of your repertoire, bike will entice you to a high, long one at every

I know the kids down at the skate park appreciated the wheelie ability. Just the kind of crowd to understand the of a bike we consider to be one of our new favorites.
