2016 DUCATI HYPERSTRADA 939 (7)

Ducati’s Supermoto series of motorcycles, the Hypermotard range has been renewed for 2016 with the arrival of the new EURO 4 certified 937cc Ducati Testastretta 11° engine. This twin-cylinder is used for the whole range, from the sporty Hypermotard 939 to the extreme Hypermotard 939 SP as well as the Hyperstrada 939 tourer.

The Hypermotard range’s twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11° oil-cooled engine comes with an increased displacement which has been achieved by increasing the bore value from 88 mm to 94 mm. The stroke on the other hand remains unchanged at 67.2 mm. The crankshaft has been substituted by a new unit with a 42 mm diameter crank pin. The new Testastretta 11° also benefits from new pistons, cylinders and cylinder heads with an exclusive core to allow water through.

The engine, as aforementioned, is EURO 4 certified 937cc Ducati Testastretta 11° motor which puts out 113 hp of maximum power at 9,000 rpm and 97.9 Nm (10% more compared to outgoing model) of maximum torque at 7,500 rpm. The compression ratio has also been increased to 13.1:1, while the 52 mm diameter throttle bodies, controlled by an advanced full Ride-by-Wire system remain unchanged. The engine is also equipped with an oil-bath APTC clutch with slipper function that can be engaged with reduced effort on the lever. Aimed to improve the ownership experience, the 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° on the new Hypermotard range has maintenance intervals of 30,000 km (18,000 miles).

With a progressive self-servo system and increased friction ratio, the transmittable torque is claimed to be increased in equal conditions with a consequent reduction of pressure on the clutch spring and, at the final stage, of the lever load.

The Hypermotard range is built upon a 34 mm diameter tubular steel Trellis frame with 25.5° of rake and trail and offset of 104 mm and 30 mm respectively. The frame marries to a die-cast sub-frame and incorporates a techno-polymer mid-section as part of the assembly. The Hypermotard is claimed to have a highly manoeuvrable 70° of lock-to-lock steering movement, and a wheelbase of 1500 mm which is designed to enhance the Hypermotard’s stability at speed. The 16 litre fuel tank on the Hypermotard maintains its thin waistline and compact silhouette.

The design carries forward the genes of the Hypermotard family. For 2016, the headlamp uses a very compact and lightweight assembly, which employs a single parabola for high and low beam functions using a blue vision bulb and LED positioning light. A specially designed strip of LEDs, enhanced by a high diffusion lens shaped into the sleek lines of the tailpiece, acts for both rear light and brake lights. The new LED front blinkers are integrated into the handguards, keeping the lines of the Hypermotard as clean as possible. All Hypermotard models are equipped with a hazard light function, which is activated by holding the left-turn signal button on for four seconds.

The Hypermotard’s instrumentation console has an LCD screen with a display that constantly shows the selected Riding Mode, including the associated ABS and DTC level programmed, with all three Riding Modes easily changed, while stationary or in motion, by simply scrolling through displayed modes using the indicator cancel button.

When stationary, buttons can be used to enter a setting menu from where adjustments to the various functions can be made including personalised ABS (1-3+OFF), DTC (1-8+OFF) and power delivery via Ride-by-Wire (Low-Medium-High). All settings are saveable in the instrumentation’s memory and can easily be returned to factory settings with a simple default function. The system can also memorise and list the last 30 recorded lap times by using the high-beam flash button as a stopwatch. The instrumentation also includes a gear indicator and it’s system-ready to accept the heated grips Ducati accessory, which then produces its own control menu, selectable by scrolling through with the engine starter button.

All Hypermotards are equipped with the Bosch ABS 9.0MP controlled Brembo braking system. The whole range is also equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack which includes a 3-level ABS, 8 levels of Ducati Traction Control and 3 Riding Modes. Each Riding Mode has different electronic settings in order to provide the Hypermotard with three different personalities.

The front brakes use twin radially-mounted Brembo, four piston, Monobloc M4-32 callipers actuated by a master cylinder with a 4-point adjustable lever on the Hypermotard 939 and Hyperstrada 939 and 5-point on the high performance radial master cylinder of the SP. The fronts grip 320 mm discs, while a single 245 mm disc on the rear is gripped by a single Brembo calliper.

The Hypermotard 939 is available in the typical Ducati Red colouring as well as the elegant “Star White Silk”, both paired with a red frame. The Hypermotard 939 suspensions have a 43 mm diameter upside-down Kayaba fork with 170 mm travel and a Sachs shock absorber with adjustable rebound damping, providing 150 mm wheel travel. The Hypermotard 939 has a dry weight of 181 kg and a ride height of 850 mm. A raised comfort saddle with 20 mm of extra padding is also available as a Ducati Performance accessory. The Hypermotard 939 uses Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres.

The Hypermotard 939 SP has a livery inspired by the MotoGP, a weight of 178 kg and at the front a fully adjustable 50 mm diameter upside-down Öhlins fork with 185 mm travel. The rear suspension uses a fully adjustable Öhlins shock absorber which allows for 175 mm rear wheel travel. The raised ride height of the SP version allows for a 47.5° lean angle, essential for extreme race-track riding. These specifications take the ride height of the Hypermotard 939 SP to 890 mm while a 20 mm lower saddle is available as a Ducati accessory on request. The Hypermotard 939 SP uses Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres.

The Hyperstrada 939 is sold only in the Ducati Red tone but with an grey coloured frame. Designed for riding in non-urban contexts, it comes equipped with 50 litre semi-rigid removable bags and a centre stand. For enhanced comfort, the Hyperstrada 939 has handlebars raised by 20 mm and a touring windshield. There are also two 12 V power sockets, designed to power navigation instruments or thermal clothing. The Hyperstrada 939 is equipped with a wider saddle for increased comfort. In addition there are passenger grab handles designed for safe and comfortable use. The saddle, at a height of just 810 mm, allows for optimum footing even with a full load and a passenger. Another saddle that’s even more comfortable with 20 mm of extra foam can be ordered. The Hyperstrada 939 suspensions rely on a 43 mm upside-down Kayaba with 130 mm travel while at the rear there’s a Sachs shock absorber with easily adjustable rebound damping and remote spring pre-load which allows for 133 mm travel of the rear wheel. The Hyperstrada 939 has a dry weight of 187 kg and uses Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyres.
