Ducati Hypermotard 939 SP

When you get serious about your supermotoing, the all-new Ducati Hypermotard 939 SP is ready to take help you test your limits. The big change from the standard Hypermotard 939 is the upgraded suspension and wheels.

The Hypermotard 939 SP gets fully adjustable high-end Öhlins suspension. The forks are 48mm in diameter (rather than 43mm on the standard) and both ends have longer suspension travel.

This does result in a higher seat height, but the Hypermotard 939 SP is a no-nonsense canyon performer. Three-spoked forged alloy wheels are impressive, as are the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP they are shod with.

The SP gets the Ducati Safety Pack with ABS and traction control, but we suspect many Hypermotard 939 SP riders will dispense with those niceties from time to time.
