If you do buy a Hypermotard 939 SP, you're morally obligated to ride it like this...

Ducati have released a fresh set of pics of the new, 2016-spec Hypermotard 939, which is also available in Hypermotard 939 SP and Hyperstrada 939 versions. All versions of the bike are powered by the same 937cc Testastretta V-twin that's Euro IV emissions compliant, and produces 113 horsepower and 98Nm of torque. With a kerb weight of 204-210kg (depending on the variant), the Hypermotard 939 is able to offer high levels of easily accessible performance for the experienced rider.

As with most modern Ducatis, the Hypermotard 939 gets the latest ABS, 8-level traction control and three riding modes. A 43mm Kayaba USD fork and adjustable Sachs monoshock, combined with the Hypermotard's steel-tube trellis frame and single-sided aluminium swingarm, provide excellent handling. The bike rides on 17-inch wheels, shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres. The Hypermotard 939 SP gets a fully adjustable 48mm USD Öhlins fork and fully adjustable Öhlins shock, along with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP rubber and a slightly increased ride height for more extreme racetrack-oriented performance.

The more touring-oriented Hyperstrada 939 gets all the standard equipment of the Hypermotard 939, with the addition of 50-litre semi-rigid removable bags and a centrestand. For increased comfort, the Hyperstrada 939 has handlebars raised by 20mm and a touring windshield. There are also two 12V power sockets, designed to power navigation instruments or thermal clothing. The Hyperstrada 939's wider saddle offers increased comfort over longer distances and comes with handy grab handles for the pillion seat passenger.

A wide range of Ducati accessories are available for the Hypermotard / Hyperstrada 939, including a titanium-and-carbon Termignoni exhaust system (which offers a claimed 5% increase in power and torque output!), a 'Sport Package' that offers various billet aluminium and carbonfibre bits, carbon headlight fairing and centre tank cover, billet aluminium rider footrests, heated grips, soft luggage and an anti-theft kit.

Much as we like the Hypermotad 939, if we were buying a Ducati, it would have to be this one! Or this. Or, well, this one.
