The Hypermotard was originally revealed as a concept back in
2006. By 2007 the bike was a reality.
The aggressive 'motard' styling and stance combine with Ducati
'sportbike' technology to deliver the best of both worlds. The
slim and and incredibly light Hypermotard offers a riding position
that ensures great vision and control.
The Ducati Hypermotard 1100 is powered by a two-valve, air-cooled,
Desmodromic Dual Spark engine. This unit produces 90 horsepower
and 76 pounds of torque. The compact L-twin engine is no wider
than a single cylinder, ensuring that the bike is lean and agile.
The air-cooled design eliminates all the water radiators, hoses,
valves, reservoirs and pumps, keeping the motorcycle’s weight
down to a minimum 390lbs (177kg) and its lines clean and race-like.
Two spark plugs per cylinder, Dual Spark, optimises combustion
temperatures and increases maximum power and torque throughout
the rev range, enhancing reliability and reducing fuel consumption.
Power is optimised with fuel injected into 45mm throttle bodies
and a 2-1-2 exhaust system that exits high behind the rear of
In addition to red, the Hypermotard 1100 sees the introduction
of Ducati's now famous pearl white to the colour line-up. The
striking new livery contrasts well against the red frame with
a new carbon-grey finish applied to the outer engine casings
of both colours to complete the effect. The 1100 s retains the
magnesium-gold outer casings on both the red and black schemes.
