2007 Ducati Hypermotard spotted testing, production confirmed


The dramatic new Ducati Hypermotard will go on sale in 2007!

One of the more outstanding concepts to come out of Italy in recent times – and a bike which enthusiasts have been fervently hoping will make it to production – the Ducati Hypermotard is finally on! There are various reports of the bike having been seen testing in and around Bologna, in Italy, and it seems certain that the bike will be in Ducati showrooms early next year. The Hypermotard is expected to weigh in at around 175 kilos, and pack up to 135 horsepower from its 1100cc V-twin. That is if it gets Ducati's new 1098cc v-twin. If Ducati choose to fit the Hypermotard with their 1100cc air-cooled unit, it should still have around 100 horsepower. So it should be an amazing machine either way!

There's seems to be no letting up in sportsbike development in Italy. Ducati is also expected to be ready with its 1200cc superbike by 2008, which will replace the 999. Aprilia and KTM are also expected to be ready with their 1200cc superbikes by 2008, so the world superbike racing should be a riot in that year!
