2016 Ducati Hypermotard lineup

Ducati didn’t hold back when revamping its 2016 lineup. Along with the Panigale 959, the Multistrada 1200 Enduro, the XDiavel, and the Scrambler Sixty2, the Borgo Panigale-based brand also unveiled a revised Hypermotard lineup.

Meet the 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939, Hypermotard 939 SP and the Hyperstrada 939 – all three utilizing the new 937cc Testastretta 11-degree L-twin that produces 113 horsepower and 72 ft/lbs of torque, the latter up 10 percent over the previous 821 series.

The entire Hypermotard 939 range arrives with the traditional steel-trellis frame, and the latest in Ducati electronics. All 2016 Hypermotards feature the Ducati Safety Pack, which includes a three-level ABS, eight levels of Ducati Traction Control, and three riding modes.

Suspension on the base Hypermotard 939 is handled by a 43mm upside-down 43mm Kayaba fork (6.7 inches of travel), and a Sachs shock absorber with adjustable rebound damping out back (5.9 inches of travel). With a dry weight of just 399 lbs., the  Hypermotard 939 is available in two colors – Ducati Red and Star White Silk (both with a red frame).

The 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939 SP takes styling from Ducati Corse in MotoGP. The suspension is upgraded to Ohlins components – a 50mm upside-down fork (7.2 inches of travel) and a fully-adjustable shock absorber (6.8 inches of travel).

The SP is ready for the track with 47.5 degrees of lean angle available thanks to the raised ride height. This height also raises the seat to 35 inches, though a lower seat is available.

The 2016 Ducati Hyperstrada 939 takes the Hypermotard, and adds everything needed for urban comfort: higher handlebars, a touring windscreen, two 12V power sockets, wider seat, a center stand, and semi-rigid removable bags that have a 50-liter capacity.

The Hyperstrada 939 uses 43mm Kayaba forks (5.1 inches travel) and a Sachs shock abosorber with adjustable rebound damping and remote sprig pre-load that allows for 5.2 inches of travel at the rear wheel.

Following are the highlights of the 2016 Ducati Hypermotard lineup.
