Did your watch battery die? You seem to be running a little slow today...

The lowdown

Ducati has just announced the Hypermotard, an outrageous new motorcycle design that is an answer to the KTM 950 Supermoto, the bike that led the way in the ultra-motard class.

Ducati's Hypermotard released the following information at the beginning of the Milan motorcycle show:

The Hypermotard attacks urban canyons and carves up mountain passes with total abandon.

High performance starts with attitude. Stripped down to its essentials, the Hypermotard is an extreme performance, totally over-the-top motorcycle. Its purpose is single minded to thrill.

Incredibly slim and exceptionally light, with a riding position to dominate, the Hypermotard is ready to rock every road.

Race styling makes the blood boil, but the Hypermotard offers what no other bike in its class can: speeds exceeding 220 KPH on the track, fuel injection, and big bore acceleration with more than 100 horsepower on only 175Kg of dry weight the most extreme, mountain-conquering, urban-assaulting machine ever - from Ducati.

On the Road
Bring on the curves, the bumps, and the unexpected. A rigidly triangulated Trellis frame and track-tested chassis geometry is matched with state-of-the-art suspension.

Start off with road-holding 50mm Marzocchi R.A.C. forks, gripped by a triple screw lower fork crown, then add an Ohlins remote reservoir shock that mounts to a stout, single-sided swing arm.

Ultra light forged and machined Marchesini racing wheels are paired with a single radial mounted Brembo four piston, four pad calliper gripping a 320mm disc up front and a 240mm disc at the rear.

Power
1000ccs of Desmo power. The 1000 Dual Spark engine pumps out torque and horsepower that is smooth and linear, because the roads that the Hypermotard seeks are neither smooth nor linear.

A slipper-type racing clutch makes aggressive downshifting and heavy braking more exciting by damping the abrupt selection of lower gears while entering a turn. Magnesium engine covers subtract more weight for a feathery feel and athletic maneuvers.

Rider Controls
A ride on the Hypermotard is road domination. The wide tapered section handlebars transfer control of the tarmac to the rider. Full-length seat design lets the rider move fore and aft, up-front entering the turns, back for maximum traction on exit.

The Hypermotard. Two wheels, one purpose. The most thrilling ride ever.

Fack me

Other than the ridiculous use of wording "The Hypermotard attacks urban canyons and carves up mountain passes with total abandon" and "with a riding position to dominate" or even the "Race styling makes the blood boil" I actually don't mind it. I doubt you'll see many of the Supermotard Guys racing them, but you never know.
