2013 Ducati Hyperstrada

In a continuing effort to widen its offerings, Ducati offers the all-new Hyperstrada for the 2013 model year.

The Hyperstrada is the touring member of the Hypermotard family, which features the base model, the higher-performance Hypermotard SP, and the Hyperstrada.

Ducati calls the bike a “cross-over” between the worlds of motard and touring. Yes, the bike is a cross-over model, but it’s quickly gaining the status of a mini-Multistrada.

The Hyperstrada doesn’t arrive with as much technology as the Multistrada, but it’s no technological slouch, either; the Hyperstrada arrives with three-level ABS, eight-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC), and three riding modes – Sport (110hp – High), Touring (110hp – Medium) and Urban (75hp – Low).

To improve the touring aspects, the Hyperstrada arrives with 50 liters of quickly-detachable side luggage (an extra 31-liter top case is available), a center stand, 20mm higher handlebars, a touring-oriented windscreen, a thicker seat, two auxiliary 12v power outlets and passenger grab handles.

The Bologna-based manufacturer stuffs the Hyperstrada with the 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.

Taking care of suspension duties are 43mm Kayaba upside-down forks up front, and a single Sachs rear shock absorber with user-friendly remote hydraulic spring preload adjustment out back.

The 399-lbs. (dry) Hyperstrada rolls on 10-spoke, 1199 Panigale-style cast aluminum wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Trail Tires. The bike is availble in Ducati Red or Arctic White, and retails for $13,295.
