First Look: 2010 Ducatis - Hyper-Evolved

Ducati drops a fitter, faster Hypermotard too

By Aaron Frank, Photography by Ducati

The next evolution of Ducati's twin-cylinder supermoto, fittingly named the Hypermotard 1100EVO ($11,995), sheds a whopping 15.5 pounds and gains 5 horsepower compared to the original. Nearly 12 lbs. were trimmed from the motor, thanks to new Vacural-cast cases and a lightened crank, flywheel and alternator. Extra power comes courtesy of new porting, a revised combustion chamber and a new airbox. Ducati will also offer a track-ready SP version ($14,495) with increased cornering clearance, uprated suspension, higher bars and even lower weight after the addition of forged and machined Marchesini wheels and, of course, a liberal dose of carbon-fiber.
