Nicky Hayden getting down and dirty with the new Ducati Hypermotard SP!
Ducati MotoGP star Nicky Hatyden was keen to get down to some practice on the new Ducati Hypermotard SP, and tweeted this picture through Ducati today.

The star is believed to be shooting promotional material for the new bike which features a new liquid-cooled 820cc motor, chassis, and top-spec suspension.

Perhaps the current Ducati MotoGP rider, and former MotoGP world champion was keen to emulate this shot of WSB legend Ruben Xaus taken on the world press launch of the original Hypermotard. We reckon Xaus wins on style points, especially as he did this every single lap!
