Since its first public showing 15 years ago, the Ducati Hypermotard has been an outlier in the motorcycle world: part sportbike, part supermoto, and all fun. Sharper styling and revised ergonomics—wider handlebars, a slimmer fuel tank, and a narrower seat—bring the latest-generation Hypermotard 950 more in line with the wild-and-woolly original. Displacing the same 937cc as last year’s model, the Testastretta 11° engine has a new exhaust cam, higher compression, larger throttle bodies, and reworked exhaust plumbing to reportedly pump out 4 more horsepower. The trellis frame is also new and the steel tubes vary in diameter to reduce weight. A 45mm Marzocchi fork, Y-shaped-spoke wheels, and brake discs with aluminum flanges shed additional mass.
