Ducati Hypermotard 796 in dealerships

Ducati North America announced today that the highly-anticipated 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796’s are in transit to dealerships across the country, just in time for the holiday season.

Beginning this weekend, the Ducati Hypermotard 796 will be available to the public at all authorized Ducati dealerships. Developed using weight saving technologies from Ducati’s racing machines, the Hypermotard 796 includes a light action slipper-type clutch and top shelf components establishing it as the ‘must-have’ bike for the 2010 riding season.

Perfect for dicing through the daily commute or attacking the open roads, the Ducati 796 flawlessly balances Ducati’s unrivaled twin-cylinder power, 81hp and sportbike heredity with the lightweight and minimalist Supermotard concept.

Available color selections include Ducati red, matte black and white. MSRP for the 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796 will be $9,995, a true bargain for a handmade Italian motorcycle.
