he Ducati Hypermotard is a 'Supermoto style' Ducati motorcycle designed by Pierre Terblanche and was first seen at the November 2005 EICMA trade show in Milan. The Hypermotard was awarded "Best of Show" at EICMA and has since won other show awards. The Hypermotard has a 1,078 cc (65.8 cu in) dual spark (see 2010 MY revisions) 'Desmo' or 'Desmodromic' aired-cooled two-valve L-Twin engine with fuel injection and weighs under 180 kg (396 lb). The Hypermotard is capable of speeds in the region of 125 mph (201 km/h), but many people choose this kind of bike for having fun at speeds of up 100 mph (160 km/h) and accept that there's limited protection from wind blast at higher speeds compared to some motorcycles, due to the upright riding position and lack of fairings/ screen. The rigidly triangulated trellis frame wears 50 mm Marzocchi R.A.C. inverted forks, and has a Sachs/ hlins remote reservoir shock attached to a strong, single-sided swing arm. The Marchesini racing wheels wear dual radially mounted Brembo four-piston, two-pad brake calipers matched with 305 mm discs up front, and a 245 mm disc with two-piston caliper at the rear.
