Ducati Hypermotard 796

When Ducati designer Pierre came up with the Hypermotard, he visualised it first as having one of the factory`s smaller air-cooled around the 750cc level.

pressures though dictated when the bike made its in 2007, it came with a big air-cooled V-twin, and it was a pretty animal too.

Now the smaller original is to go on sale, fitted an 803cc engine which looking indistinguishable from air-cooled Ducati twins, is new. There are other compared with the Hypermotard`s brother, such as a 0.8in lower seat, lower suspension (non-adjustable 43mm forks up front and a preload and adjustable Sachs shock at the revised frame to reduce and a slipper clutch.

The result is a reduction in overall of some 26lb (12kg) the 1100, which is substantial and as soon as you swing a leg over the Fire it up and you`re rewarded that offbeat lumpy matched to a surprising lack of which is so characteristic of the 90 degree though without the clanking dry rattle of so many Ducatis as bike has a wet clutch.

The lever is very light, something was aiming for deliberately as it hopes to a number of female riders the 796: this is the real for the slipper clutch, not to help supermoto riders back the into turns, but to use the self-servo that`s inherent in Ducati`s clutch design to make it in traffic and for weaker wrists. it a self-servo clutch would be appropriate.

Release it and the bike pulls with real force it`d only feel if you`d just stepped off an otherwise this is convincing and engine to use, and in fact the 796 like a better balanced, and more natural bike the larger version. Its reduced makes it more agile and reduces the forward weight that causes so much dive on the 1100, which in upsets it on the entry to corners, and during cornering if you roll the on and off or dab at the brakes.

The 796 is not perfect in this either though. I was never happy with the front end of the as it felt too light and vague to complete confidence in corners, a it seems of an overall rearward bias with quick and those very wide along with the soft and travel suspension.

Get your line right, the power on through the turn and and it`s fine, but if you shift weight, pull on the bars or to adjust the power or brakes, as you often do, then the front with too much sensitivity and the bike`s line. You could put down to the bike being a machine, but it`s not really, than vaguely in style. In it`s an agile, sporting bike, and a more tactile end would enhance it.

Don`t be put off too though, this is not a fatal just a trait that irritate some faster In other respects the Hypermotard suit many people well. It looks good, and thanks to what Ducati is its most fuel efficient to date it should average 58mpg (20.5km/l, 4.9 l/100km, US), which in turn make the silly 2.7 gallon litres, 3.3 gallons US) tank quite so restrictive, with a of nearly 160 miles (250km).

I`m still not convinced by the mirrors, items mounted on the very of the bars. These give a view behind, something of a on a Ducati admittedly, but it`s not good, and they make the so wide they`re a liability in They`re designed to fold in easily so when you`re past cars you don`t clouting their mirrors but a pain to have to keep them in and out to trade off width rear view.

Optional conventional mirrors are and I`d go for those while keeping the ones but mostly folded in.

Our ride was a mix of blasting heat and with bitter cold and rain, and the poorer conditions did the bike to be harder work a Japanese four when it to trickling along slowly. The are widely spaced and the engine not to be dropped below 2000rpm, so you end up it a little high in a lower making the bike very to the throttle, or putting up with jerkiness by lugging it at low revs in the ratio instead. The bike it okay but for inexperienced riders it a little harder work.

Overriding the niggles is the engine`s performance, revving pretty and offering impressive mid-range with the usual Ducati-perfect delivery, plus a dash of and fun that will make riders fall completely in with the bike.

And that is what it`s really all
