Ducati Hypermotard 796 (2010)

Anticipated 2010 Ducati 796 Launched

The Supermotard craze about from a melding of pulled from both bike and dirt bike Ducati took notice and in with both feet they introduced their concept back in 2005. It such a splash that the production version was first in 2006, the sheer volume of actually brought down the

International deliveries began in with two flavors offered – the base model and the 1100S, higher caliber components.

The US see a Hypermotard model until by which time Ducati released a black-on-black frame for the creating the first opportunity to cop a Hypermotard and piquing our interest. As as this bike is, the price of $14,995 for the S and $11,995 for the base is a little steep for many customers. Fret no more… has just unveiled a new sub-$10,000 796.

The Ducati Hypermotard 796 an all-new air-cooled engine 2 valves per cylinder, putting out and 56 lb-ft of torque. The top and bottom clamps have been and the frame layout adjusted to eliminate all of the forged elements on the 1100. As such, the Hypermotard 796 in at a svelte 368 pounds.

Other include an APTC clutch and swingarm.

The first chance to the Ducati Hypermotard 796 in person be at Milan’s EICMA international show. If travel plans to out a motorcycle aren’t in the cards, bike will be available in showrooms in December for a base of $9,995. Color choices include Ducati red or matte and matte white.

2010 Hypermotard 796 First Ride

His insatiable thirst for life is surpassed by his monthly fuel Whether rocketing on land, through the air, or jumping the our Associate Editor does it all and has the to prove it.

It’s hard to that almost three have passed since motorcycle manufacturer Ducati its original Hypermotard 1100 This machine created a new in motorcycling—a mechanical and aesthetic between the world of high-performance and supermotos. Starting next Ducati expands the category the introduction of the 2010 Ducati 796.

The 796 was designed to allow a wider of motorcyclists to experience the unique of a Hyper. To do this, engineers it with a friendlier powertrain a smaller engine and easier-to-use decreased weight, different components, and a lower seat. To see if got it right we traveled to its home in Panigale (an enclave of Bologna, to experience it in the adjacent foothills of legendary motorcycling company.


Propulsion is provided by a L-Twin engine based off the used in the Monster 696. The utilizes the same 88mm but has an 8.8mm-longer … (now 66mm total). Different with a reshaped crown compression to 11.1:1. Other internals include the connecting crankshaft, as well as the cases are lighter and more compact.

One of the key that is still shared is the relatively low-tech 2-valve heads which use Ducati’s Desmodromic valve actuation Despite the engine actually Ducati claims that engine gets superior mileage as compared to the 696 engine.

is pumped down from the plastic fuel tank 45mm throttle bodies, equipped with its own fuel-injector. exhaust is purged through a stainless-steel exhaust system and is from Ducati’s signature under-tail mufflers. The exhaust a sculpted metal pre-silencer also houses the catalytic for Euro 3 emissions conformity.

Furthermore each pipe is with an oxygen sensor in to help facilitate optimum fueling. A 6-speed transmission power back to the rear via a chain final drive, a hydraulically operated APTC wet with slipper-action functionality the gearbox.

The engine is hung a steel frame of identical as the 1100. The 796’s frame benefits from a new forming which reduces weight compromising rigidity. Both the top and fork clamps are also The clamps hold a new non-adjustable Marzocchi inverted fork.

is a tapered aluminum handlebar. suspension consists of a Sachs shock absorber that through a linkage and connects to the single-sided swingarm. As opposed to the the shock offers adjustment for preload and rebound damping.

the seat itself was shortened by 0.8 and now measures 32.5-inches from the

The 796 rolls on similar-spec aluminum as the 1100, measuring 3.5 x 17-inches up and 5.5 x 17-inches at the rear. The rims are with Bridgestone BT-016 tires in sizes 120/70 and 180/55 rear. Brakes of twin 305mm rotors up which are controlled by radial-mount Brembo calipers.

The rear disc measures 245mm in and is independently controlled by a twin-piston Stainless-steel brake lines and rear complement the set-up.

it’s difficult to distinguish the 796 the 1100 as the majority of its parts are including its plastic hand with integrated LED turn flip-out mirrors, and LED taillight glows brighter during Aside from those a keen eye will see the differences in tires, and belly exhaust as well as the updated orange-backlit panel as used on the Streetfighter more about it in the 2010 Streetfighter First Ride.) it shares the same slim-line

Another subtle difference is the box shape of the front brake and master cylinder reservoir. All and done, the 796 is claimed to weigh 27 less than the 1100, means its curb weight measure just over 400

Entry-level Performance?

On paper, the 796 has it takes to be classified as an entry-level within Ducati’s model A lower 32.5-inch seat 803cc air-cooled engine, adjustable suspension, and a price tag of Although it is in fact not as sharp-edged as its displacement sibling, it isn’t we’d exactly term a for beginners.

Jump into the and one will notice its hybrid position. It feels like a between the flat pinion of a and the narrow seat of a dirt Yet it is clearly more aligned the pavement realm. Equally as is the lower position of the seat. The is two-fold: First, it allows a tall rider to plant feet firmly on the ground.

it elevates the position of the handlebar which is well appreciated how awkwardly low it feels on the 1100. though the seat has been it isn’t so much to make the feel cramped even for a rider. Wrap your around the control levers and be able to adjust their fore or aft in four increments. the red starter “trigger” up reveals the button.

Press it and you’re off and running.

The APTC clutch makes the lever feel almost Its first gear matches allowing the rider to motor from a stop easily little clutch slippage. the throttle reveals an engine churns out an impressive amount of

It presents none of the lethargic of the 696 mill, but at the same time it be too robust for an inexperienced rider. The rough running manners at low rpm exacerbates this and makes us why Ducati motorcycles can’t run at low rpm. Keep the revs 4000 however, and the engine none of the aforementioned characteristic, delivering a smooth, fat spread of all the way to the top of the tachometer.

Overall engine is throaty but we did hear an irritating vibration-type noise that like it was being emitted the pre-silencer.

Shorter final-drive assists the bike in gaining fast. Unfortunately, its transmission the precision of its Japanese rivals it’s almost impossible to neutral at a stop. Based on experience, however, the gears like they move freely after break-in.

the clutch offering an extremely lever pull, we weren’t by the vague feel when the is engaged aggressively or by the ineffectiveness of the clutch.

The foothills to the south of the factory put a real premium on a motorcycle and it is here that the 796 shines. As soon as you even about changing directions, the is already there. Yet its handling are neutral and the bike never more or less than the rider inputs.

Equally as is how stable the chassis is, especially how softly sprung both the and shock are. An elevated will cause the rearend to and drag hard parts. despite the undersprung spring the overall balance front-to-rear is a improvement over the 1100.

Although the fork offers adjustability, we actually prefer the damping characteristics of the 796’s as compared to the adjustable one found on the Specifically it offers slightly initial damping and significantly return damping. Granted you can a similar set-up with the unit but you have to literally the compression and rebound damping to do so.

The shock on the other hand adjustment for spring preload and damping, but we didn’t have to adjust it. Overall, the only we have with the suspension is both ends still sufficient initial damping. For whenever you slam open the the weight transfers rearward and the instantly squats. Conversely, you let off the throttle the weight instantly forward and causes the frontend to excessively.

If engineers could dial in more initial front and rear we’d they’d have a terrific package. Lastly, traction by the stock Bridgestone tires is amazing especially when you just how dirty and wet some of the we encountered were.

We’ve been a fan of the lower-spec non-monobloc that come on the base 1100 or 848 Superbike, but on the 796 they’re No doubt the 796’s lowered velocity and reduced unsprung tax the braking system less, they are effective at quickly speed while offering a lever feel. We also how visible the instrumentation is and the high-tech of the handlebar mounted switch

While we really appreciate the mirrors, their outright is questionable as they make it prone for you to clip cars slicing through traffic and the they provide isn’t clear.

A Better Hypermotard?

That There’s no doubt that the 796 isn’t without fault. Its low rpm manners definitely could be upon, as could its suspension lacks adequate damping the top of suspension …. Then is the weird exhaust vibration

At the end of the day the most important single of the bike is that it’s a to ride. Even better is Ducati has made its level of more accessible to all riders. the rpms up and you’ll be amazed at how power the engine cranks

Conversely, its brakes are strong to keep you throughly entertained slowing becomes a priority. The confidently inhales tight, like few other sport plus it looks awesome and can be for no other machine on the road. If planning on doing trackdays or around fast sections of then you’re going to the extra speed generated by the 1100.

However, if your game takes place in the city or on the tightest, sketchiest you can find, than the 796 is the motorcycle for
