“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

New Ducati Hypermotard 939 & 939 SP and Hyperstrada 939


DUCATI has just unveiled its renewed family of Hypers - the Hypermotard 939, Hypermotard 939 SP and Hyperstrada 939, ahead of Eicma.
We knew to expect a new Hypermotard because we recently saw some American emmissions documents that told us what was coming.
All the bikes are based around a new 937cc twin-cylinder engine, which makes a claimed 113hp and 10% additional torque over the previous 821cc engine. All the new bikes get three stage ABS, eight level traction control and three riding modes.
Prices are as follows:
Hypermotard 939 - £9,995
Hypermotard 939 SP - £12,595
Hyperstrada 939 - £11,195
Here is some information from Ducati:
'The Hypermotard range is renewed for 2016 with the arrival of the new EURO 4 certified 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° engine. This twin-cylinder is to be used for the whole range, from the sporty Hypermotard 939 to the extreme Hypermotard 939 SP as well as the Hyperstrada 939, the tourer that's particularly suited for everyday use. From the moment it was first presented as a concept bike at the Milan show in late 2005, the Hypermotard prototype was an immediate success. Production began in 2007 with the 1100 and 1100 S models and in 2013 the Hypermotard underwent great changes. A whole family was born from the one bike, powered by the 821 cm3 Testastretta twin-cylinder which has now grown to 937 cm3.
'The new 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° engine guarantees a maximum power of 113 hp and most of all a 10% increase in torque. This twin-cylinder, which has an oil-cooling radiator, is attached to the steel tube Trellis frame that made the Hypermotard famous. The whole range is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack which includes a 3-level ABS, 8 levels of Ducati Traction Control and 3 Riding Modes. Each Riding Mode has different electronic settings in order to provide the Hypermotard with three different personalities.
'The Hypermotard 939 is available in the typical Ducati Red colouring as well as the elegant “Star White Silk”, both paired with a red frame. The Hypermotard 939 suspensions have a 43 mm diameter upside-down Kayaba fork with 170 mm travel and a Sachs shock absorber with adjustable rebound damping, providing 150 mm wheel travel. The Hypermotard 939 has a dry weight of 181 kg and a ride height of 850 mm. A raised comfort saddle with 20 mm of extra padding is also available as a Ducati Performance accessory. The Hypermotard 939 uses Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres.
'The Hypermotard 939 SP has a livery inspired by the MotoGP, a weight of 178 kg and at the front a fully adjustable 50 mm diameter upside-down Öhlins fork with 185 mm travel. The rear suspension uses a fully adjustable Öhlins shock absorber which allows for 175 mm rear wheel travel. The raised ride height of the SP version allows for a 47.5° lean angle, essential for extreme race-track riding. These specifications take the ride height of the Hypermotard 939 SP to 890 mm. A 20 mm lower saddle is available as a Ducati accessory on request. The Hypermotard 939 SP uses Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres.
'The Hyperstrada 939 is sold only in the Ducati Red tone but with an elegant grey coloured frame. Designed for riding in non-urban contexts, it comes equipped with 50 litre semi-rigid removable bags and a centre stand. For increased comfort, the Hyperstrada 939 has handlebars raised by 20 mm and a touring windshield. There are also two 12 V power sockets, designed to power navigation instruments or thermal clothing. The Hyperstrada 939 is equipped with a wider saddle for increased comfort. In addition there are passenger grab handles designed for safe and comfortable use. The saddle, at a height of just 810 mm, allows for optimum footing even with a full load and a passenger. Another saddle that's even more comfortable with 20 mm of extra foam can be ordered. The Hyperstrada 939 suspensions rely on a 43 mm upside-down Kayaba with 130 mm travel while at the rear there's a Sachs shock absorber with easily adjustable rebound damping and remote spring pre-load which allows for 133 mm travel of the rear wheel. The Hyperstrada 939 has a dry weight of 187 kg and uses Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyres.'
