2013 Ducati Hypermotard 1100EVO [Photo Gallery]
Far from being a tamed beast, the Hypermotard 1100EVO carries on the legendary heritage of the L-Twin air-cooled bikes. Keeping true to its extreme nature, the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard 1100EVO boasts the same spectacular mixture between the savage feel of sport bikes and the feeling of infinite maneuverability of the supermoto machines.
The bike may look skinny, but its naked design does not come with a feeble feeling: the 1,078cc Desmodue Evoluzione engine packs a whopping 95 BHP power and delivers 75.9 ft-lbs (103 Nm) of torque which allow the rider to race anyone anywhere, on track or up the hill through fast turns, with ease and confidence alike.
The engine itself is lighter than previous versions and sports the 848-style flywheel for a more balanced feel and improved performance. The Trellis tubular steel frame comes with a Marzocchi front end and adjustable Sachs rear shock, all complemented by 5-spoke lightweight wheels.
The 2013 Hypermotard 1100EVO is DDA-ready (Ducati Data Analyzer) and comes with a minimalist switch gear, letting you focus more on riding than on other things. The same folding mirrors complete this spartan, yet aggressive design for the next year riding season.
