In 2021, the Ducati Hypermotard 950 family of motorcycles was updated and consisted of three models such as Hypermotard 950, Hypermotard 950 RVE, and Hypermotard 950 SP. All the models were designed to allow the rider to have fun in curves and easily tackle the city traffic with the safety offered by Ducati's sophisticated electronic equipment.
The 2021 version received a new livery that resembled the world of MotoGP with its choice of colors and graphic lines that forged the dynamic and fun character of the model. Also, the SP was at the top of its range and differed from the other two models with its Ohlins suspension that featured increased travel, Marchesini forged wheels, and standard Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up-and-down EVO system.
In the performance department, the 2021 Ducati 950 SP was brought to life by a 937cc Ducati Testastretta twin-cylinder engine that delivered an output power of 114 hp with maximum strength at 9,000 rpm and 96 Nm (71 lb-ft) of torque available at 7,250 rpm. The power and torque remained unchanged with the transition to EURO5 emission homologation.
Also, the transmission was revised to easier engage neutral when the bike was in a stationary position while ensuring maximum precision in gear selection, with the technical solution borrowed from the Monster and SuperSport 950 models.
As for braking performance, the bike packed two 320 mm semi-floating discs with radial-mounted Monobloc Brembo four-piston calipers on the front and a 245 mm disc squeezed by a two-piston caliper on the rear wheel.
