Ducati has unveiled the MY2018 Hypermotard 939 which receives visual and mechanical upgrades. For 2018, the motorcycle features a new Star White Silk colour scheme. Stylish satin white, matched with the red frame and wheels, is aimed to enhance the design and style of the motorcycle. The new livery gives a taste of the Model Year 2018 which still offers the more “classic” Ducati Red with red frame and black wheels.
