Hooliganism personified in Ducati Red.

The 2020 Ducati Hypermotard can be a go-to for those who take to “casual” street riding—hooliganism being implied—and those who also look to sprinkle in the occasional track day. With looks that are inspired by the supermotard race world, a new (as of 2019) frame and ergonomics setup, 937cc Testastretta 11° twin, Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, and Bosch six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit you can look forward to every apex. Looking for more athleticism? The premium SP version adds sportier graphics, increased travel Öhlins suspension (that is claimed to reduce lean angle by three degrees), Marchesini forged wheels, and finally an up/down quickshifter.
