Shortly after its debut at the EICMA in Milan, Ducati’s new Hyperstrada earned a nickname – the mini multi.
One quick glance at the 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada, and it’s easy to see why. This machine is actually quite different from the Multistrada, though.
Ducati calls the model a “cross-over” between a motard and touring machine. The Bologna-based manufacturer began by stuffing the Hypermotard-based machine with brand new, 821cc Testastretta 11-degree engine that produces 110 horsepower. And it’s service friendly, also, the new L-Twin needing valve checks every 18,600 miles.
In addition to a new engine, the Hyperstrada lineup includes the Ducati Safety Package of three-level ABS, eight-level Ducati Traction Control, and integrated Riding Modes.
Having the “strada” adage in the name, which means “road” in Italian, the Hyperstrada arrives with 50 liters of detachable luggage, with an optional 31-liter top case. For road use, the Hyperstrada also features taller handelbars, a touring screen, a more comfortable seat and passenger grab handles.
