The freshness comes from ditching the old air-cooled engine and replacing it with the liquid-cooled Testastretta 11 L-twin, packing 821cc and 110 HP.

If you're a beginner and are in love with the smooth aggressive lines of the new Hypemotard, pay a visit to your local Ducati dealer and ask about the power reduction kit: a 35 kW legal limiter can be installed so you can already enjoy the bike.
A Sachs rear shock is standard, but Ducati has always been a good friend of pro-segment upgrades so there's plenty of premium aftermarket parts out there, waiting to find a place on your bike. The 2013 Ducati Hypermotard will be unveiled in Ronda, Spain this week, most likely making it into the dealerships in March.
