Ducati Hypermotard 950 SP new features announced

by Daniel Patrascu from https://www.autoevolution.com Ducati Hypermotard 950 SP Goes for MotoGP Look, Cuts Back on Emissions. It seems to have been a busy week for motorcycle makers, as a number of them have released versions of some of their most sought-after products revised for the 2022 model year. The latest name to join the party is Ducati, which has just announced some changes for the Hypermotard line. These changes are not all that extensive. First of all, the family continues to have three members, namely the 950, 950 RVE, and 950 SP. All continue to be powered by the same 937cc Ducati Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder engine as before, rated at 114 hp. All three models in the range now comply with the Euro 5 emissions standard, without that change taking its toll on output levels. The difference is how the engine is worked through a revised gearbox that allows for easier shifts to neutral when the bikes are standing still. Ducati says the solution chosen for the gearbox is the same one already deployed on the Monster and SuperSport 950. Just one member of the small family received a more comprehensive upgrade. Already at the head of the Hypermotard table, the SP is now gifted with a special livery meant to be reminiscent of the Italian bike maker’s involvement in MotoGP. The elements that set it apart from the other two, Öhlins suspension with increased travel, Marchesini forged wheels and standard Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) Up and Down EVO, continue to be offered for the SP. As for the other two, the 950 RVE continues to be offered in Graffiti livery, while the 950 comes in the usual Ducati Red. Ducati says it has already begun producing the new Hypermotard motorcycles, and they should hit dealerships’ shelves next month. […]

This Custom 2009 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 By Cowboy’s Chopper Is Delicious

by Silvian Secara from https://www.autoevolution.com Despite the name, Cowboy’s Chopper will happily modify any type of motorcycle. Ducati is a manufacturer with no shortage of splendid works of mechanical art, including their monstrous Diavel, the glorious Panigale and a stunning display of innovative engineering, by the name of Multistrada 1200. Among their masterpieces, we’ll also come across the stunning 2009 Hypermotard 1100. This mean machine was provided with a mighty four-stroke V-twin, capable of delivering as much as 90 hp at 7,750 rpm and 76 pound-feet (103 Nm) of torque output at 4,750 rpm. The air-cooled beast was equipped with a six-speed transmission and had an enormous displacement of 1078cc. It sits inside a tubular steel trellis frame, which is then supported by Marzocchi 50 mm (1.97 inches) upside-down forks with 165 mm (6.5 inches) of travel at the front and a fully adjustable Sachs monoshock with 141 mm (5.6 inches) of travel at the rear, joined by an aluminum single-sided swingarm. The front wheel is wrapped in 120/70-ZR17 tires and has been provided with two 305 mm (12.0 inches) brake discs, while this baby’s rear wheel wears 180/55-ZR17 rubber and a single 245 mm (9.6 inches) disc. Ducati’s 2009 model of the ferocious Hypermotard 1100 weighed as little as 395 lbs (180 kg), meaning that this bad boy would be more than happy to reach a top speed of 123 mph (198 kph) and run the quarter mile in just 12.4 seconds! Cowboy’s Chopper is a Taiwanese workshop owned by Alex Gao. Although the name might mislead you into thinking he only deals with choppers, Gao specializes in customizing just about anything that sits on two wheels and has an engine. He never ceases to amaze us with some truly sensational builds, which can all be seen on his
