Features

Chassis

  • FRAME: The Hypermotard 950 family features a steel trellis frame with variable-section tubes that weighs one kilo less than the previous model. 25° steering head angle, 104 mm trail and 30 mm offset allow for stable and safe control without compromizing the agility typical of this motorcycle. The frame is connected to the rear subframe, also a steel trellis frame, derived from that of the first Hypermotard. A wide steering angle of 70° allows great handling, while the 1,493 mm wheelbase allows maximizing stability at high speeds. The fuel tank, with 14.5 litre fuel capacity, lends the Hypermotard 950 excellent overall range without spoiling its essential, curvy lines. The Hypermotard 950 sports a single-sided aluminum swinging arm.
  • SUSPENSION: The Hypermotard 950 is equipped with a Marzocchi fork with fully adjustable 45 mm aluminum tubes and stanchions, and 170mm wheel travel that shaved off 500 grams compared to the unit installed on the previous version. At the rear, the 950 sports an adjustable Sachs shock absorber, with 150 mm wheel travel.
  • BRAKES: The front braking system features two monobloc radially-mounted 4-piston Brembo M4.32 calipers operated by a radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable 5-position lever. On the front end the discs measure 320 mm and feature aluminum flanges (for a total weight reduction of 600 grams), while at the back there is a single 245 mm diameter disc gripped by a single Brembo calliper. These components ensure a braking performance that sets the standard for the industry, a characteristic that has always been common to all Ducati bikes.
  • WHEEL AND TIRES: The Hypermotard 950 is equipped with 3-spoke Y-shaped aluminum rims with 3.5" section up front and 5.5" section at the rear and is fitted with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, namely 120/70 ZR17 up front and 180/55/55 ZR17 at the rear. These wheels enabled a weight saving of 800 grams compared to those fitted on the previous model.

Design

  • MOTARD STYLE: The Hypermotard perfectly combines such distinctive features of the original Hypermotard 1100 as minimalism, aggressiveness, lightweight look and "fun-bike" image with the innovation and technology of Ducati's latest generation models. . The "Graffiti" color scheme of the 950 RVE emphasises the lightness and aggression of the bike with a high-impact graphics layout, inspired by urban graffiti.

Engine

  • TESTASTRETTA 11°: The Hypermotard 950 family is equipped with a revised version of the 937 cc twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11°. The twin-cylinder engine has been radically revised and lightened (-1.5 kg). It outputs 4 more horsepower than its predecessor (114 hp at 9,000 rpm) and a flat torque curve peaking at 9.8 kgm at 7,250 rpm. 80% of the Hypermotard 950’s torque available at as low as 3,000 rpm, whereas torque output never drops below 88% between 5,000 and 9,000 rpm.
  • COMPRESSION RATIO: The Testastretta 11° engine has pistons with a compression ratio of 13.3:1 (compared to 12.6:1 of the predecessor), a exhaust cam profile and a exhaust system with the silencers located under the seat. The Testastretta 11° engine features a throttle body with 53 mm bore, and is controlled by a engine control unit and a Ride-by-Wire throttle control system. The twin-cylinder engine also sports, lighter clutch and generator covers, a lighter selector drum, aluminum rather than steel belt tensioners and magnesium head covers.
  • GEARBOX AND CLUTCH: The engine is equipped with a wet clutch with self-servo action and anti-hop function. Its hydraulic control system with adjustable lever help reduce lever effort. The gearbox sports the Ducati Quick Shift EVO system (DQS EVO) with up/down function. Fine tuned for the Hypermotard 950 and available as an option, it uses the lean angle information to maximize the motorcycle stability during shift changes in corners. Besides minimizing shift times, the DQS EVO allows downshifts without using the clutch thereby ensuring even more effective braking into corners. The system acts in a different way for upshifts and downshifts, supplementing the advance firing and injection action during upshifts with the controlled opening of the throttle for downshifts, thanks to the full Ride-by-Wire system.

Ergonomics

  • FUN TO THE NTH DEGREE: For the utmost riding fun and control the Hypermotard 950 is equipped with an open handlebar, narrow side profile, a seat with an extended profile and a moderate bulge in the passenger area for improved comfort. For the 950 RVE the seat is flat, in line with the pro-motard style, to facilitate shifting forward and backward on the seat while riding. The 950 RVE seat has a special covering with a dedicated "tone on tone" Ducati logo.

Graffity Color Scheme

  • GRAFFITI LIVERY: For the first time across such an extensive, complex surface, Ducati has utilised ultra-thin waterslide decals during the painting phase. As this application process is particularly lengthy and complicated, it calls for highly specialised skills. The end result is comparable to that of airbrushed bodywork, of extremely high-quality, imperceptible to the touch and long-lasting.

Performance

  • DUCATI TESTASTRETTA 11°: The Hypermotard 950 family is equipped with a revised version of the 937 cc twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11°. The twin-cylinder engine has been radically revised and lightened (-1.5 kg). It outputs 4 more horsepower than its predecessor (114 hp at 9,000 rpm) and a flat torque curve peaking at 9.8 kgm at 7,250 rpm. All the Hypermotard versions are available with the 35Kw engine specifications suitable for learners. Thanks to Ducati's constant attention to quality, the 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine allows optimal maintenance management: valve adjustment is scheduled every 30,000 km.

Safety

  • BOSCH EVO ABS CORNERING: To ensure high braking performance, combined with excellent safety, the Hypermotard 950 has been equipped with Bosch EVO ABS Cornering system with three-level adjustment. Level 3 is suitable for everyday use on the road or for poor grip conditions. It guarantees safe and stable braking under all conditions, as rear wheel lift is kept under control under harsh braking. Level 2 always manages both the front and rear braking systems but allows for more aggressive braking with softer lift-up control. This level provides greater safety under braking, even in wet conditions.Level 1 introduces a racing-like intervention logic of the cornering system up front, and activates the Slide by Brake function at the rear that allows for sliding into corners using the rear brake safely for better performance in sports riding. In level 1, the rear lift-up control is disabled.
  • DUCATI TRACTION CONTROL EVO (DTC EVO): The DTC EVO on the Hypermotard 950 is based on an algorithm that makes its interventions more precise and quick. The DTC EVO interfaces with the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) by constantly measuring the bike's angle and using this information to better judge the actions necessary to ensure ideal slipping of the rear tire (depending on the DTC EVO level set).
  • DUCATI WHEELIE CONTROL EVO (DWC EVO): The Hypermotard 950 comes with the latest version of the Ducati Wheelie Control EVO (DWC EVO). This system uses the information provided by Bosch IMU 6D to prevent wheelies and enables the rider to achieve maximum performance under acceleration with ease and safely. The DWC EVO detects the occurrence and severity of wheelies more accurately, kicks in and controls them with a higher level of precision, so as to respond to rider inputs even more accurately.

Technology

  • 6-AXIS INERTIAL MEASUREMENT UNIT (6D IMU): The Hypermotard 950 is equipped with modern, sophisticated electronics based on Bosch 6-axis inertial platform, which instantly detects the motorcycle roll, yaw and pitch angle in space. The electronic package of the Hypermotard 950 includes:• Bosch Cornering ABS EVO (with Slide by Brake function) and Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, which together form the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) • Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO • Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO, standard on the 950 SP version and available as an option on the 950.
  • RIDING MODE: The operating parameters of each control system are associated by default with the three electronic setups, or Riding Modes, available on the Hypermotard 950. Riders have the ability to customize their riding styles and restore the parameters set by Ducati. The Sport Riding Mode is suitable for sports-style riding on winding roads or on the track, and delivers the full 114 hp power delivery of the Ducati twin-cylinder engine according to the performance-oriented electronic setup.The Touring Riding Mode is ideal for in-town and out-of-town outings and for those who prefer a neat, smooth ride. The 114 hp of the Ducati twin are delivered according to a more safety-oriented electronic setup.The Urban Riding Mode is designed for everyday use in city traffic and under poor grip conditions, e.g. in the rain. That is why for twin-cylinder Testastretta this mode uses a XX hp power limit and its electronic settings are all oriented towards maximum safety.
  • INSTRUMENTATION: The instrumentation of the Hypermotard 950 family includes a 4.3" TFT display. Graphics are reminiscent of the Panigale V4, and offer user-friendly menu navigation and setting adjustments. Each Riding Mode is assigned a specific color for ease of reference. The Riding Mode setting interface provides a clear-cut, comprehensible overview of current changes to the settings with explanatory drawings of the system being set up and a graduated scale that indicates whether a change is more performance or safety/stability-oriented.
  • HEADLIGHT AND INDICATORS: The front light unit features a lightweight, very compact design and uses a headlight with Daytime Running Light (DRL), ensuring high visibility even during the day. At the rear end, a LED strip doubles as rear and stop light. The front LED turn indicators are integrated in the hand guards to keep the Hypermotard 950’s neat lines uncluttered.
