Ducati unveils 2016 Hypermotard 939 plus SP model and a Hyperstrada 939!

113bhp from the renewed 937cc Hypermotard motor

Ducati unveils 2016 Hypermotard 939 & SP and Hyperstrada 939

A renewed version of both the Ducati Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP were unveiled in Milan this evening ahead of the 2016 model year.

Adding a touch of glamour to the unveiling were Factory Ducati MotoGP riders, Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone, who rode the two new models onto the stage.

Equipped with a new 937cc Testastretta twin-cylinder engine provides a 10% power hike from the previous model’s 821cc motor which means the new model will make 113bhp while torque figures of 72.3 ft-lbs also show a 10% increase. 

A 3-stage ABS system, 8-level Traction control and 3 riding modes all provide the rider with plenty of options to personal their ride. Weighing in at 181kg (dry) with a seat height of 850mm makes the bike tall, elegant but light to handle.

MotoGP inspired livery but no wings on this Ducati

The SP model has MotoGP inspired livery, weighs 3kg less and has a fully adjustable 50mm diameter upside down Ohlins forks with 185mm travel, which the rear is equipped with a fully adjustable Ohlins shock absorber.

This makes the SP taller with a 890mm seat height, therefore capable of greater lean angles, partially helped by its Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres versus the Diablo Rosso II’s on the non-SP model.

Prices for the two Hypermotards’s are as follows:

Red – £9,995

White - £10,195

SP – 12,595


Hyperstrada 939 ready for 2016

Also, new for 2016 is the Hyperstrada 939.

Designed for mid-range touring thanks to panniers, a touring screen and seat. It too is powered by the 937cc, Testastretta twin-cylinder engine which produces the same 113bhp and 72.3 ft-lbs of power and torque respectively.

The Hyperstrada weighs a little more, at 187kg yet has a shorter seat height at 810mm.

Heated grips and sat nav are optional extras and the bike is priced at £11,195.
