Pune: Luxury motorcycle brand, Ducati today announced the launch of the all-new Hypermotard 950 in India at a price of INR 11.99 (Ex-Showroom India). The Hypermotard perfectly combines the distinctive features of the Hypermotard 1100 with minimalism, aggressiveness, lightweight look and the image of a ‘fun bike’ with the innovation and technology of Ducati’s latest motorcycle models.
Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “Hypermotard range has been loved and appreciated by riders who look for a fun and adrenalin-packed motorcycle. The new Hypermotard 950 inherits the sport and fearless characteristics which aligns to the personality of a rider who wants pure fun. It does not confine itself to a supermoto bike alone but rather comes with the performance of a dirt bike and soul of a sports bike. It’s a perfect choice for riders who’re looking for a thrilling yet sophisticated motorcycle.”
The all-new Hypermotard 950 boasts of an aggressive look along with a sporty character and is equipped with a 937 cc twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11° with more muscle, greater pulling power and new electronics to ensure smoother control. The twin-cylinder engine has been radically revised and is lightened by 1.5 kg. It puts out 4 more horsepower than its predecessor, achieving 114 hp at 9,000 rpm and a flat torque curve peaking at 9.8 kgm at 7,250 rpm.
The front view – characterized by the trademark Hypermotard ‘beak’, surmounted by compact headlight with a Daytime Running Light (DRL) gives the bike excellent visibility and underscores a clear ‘family feeling’ with the models that preceded it.
The assertive design of the Hypermotard 950 pivots around the twin under-seat tailpipes and the minimalist superstructure, which ensures the mechanics – including the light, essential rear Trellis sub-frame – are kept in clear view. As well as being more visually compact, the new Hyper is also 4 kg lighter compared to the previous model. This has been achieved thanks to a new steel trellis frame with variable-section tubes, new rims, brake discs with aluminium flanges, lightweight Marzocchi forks with aluminium fork bodies/tubes and meticulous design of every detail.
It is equipped with a new Marzocchi fork with fully adjustable 45 mm aluminium tubes and stanchions, and 170mm wheel travel. The front braking system features two monobloc radially mounted 4-piston Brembo M4.32 calipers operated by a radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable 5-position lever.
The riding position has been thoroughly revised for utmost riding fun and control. The new Hypermotard 950 sports a new handlebar, narrower side profile and a new seat, featuring a flat, extended profile and a moderate bulge in the passenger area for improved comfort.
It is equipped with 3-spoke Y-shaped aluminum rims with 3.5″ section up front and 5.5″ section at the rear and is fitted with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, namely 120/70 ZR17 up front and 180/55/55 ZR17 at the rear.
