Hypermotard 950 Overview
The new look takes its cue from the supermotard race world, the completely overhauled ergonomics ramps up the fun and riders can now count on an ultra-advanced chassis set-up and electronics package.
The frontal view - characterised by the 'beak', surmounted by compact headlight with Daytime Running Light (DRL) to give the Hypermotard 950 excellent visibility in daylight - underscores a clear 'family feeling' with the models that preceded it.
Improved Riding Position
Riding position has been thoroughly revised for the utmost riding fun and control. The new Hypermotard 950 sports a new, more open handlebar, narrower side profile and a new Hypermotard 950 seat, featuring a flat, extended profile and a moderate bulge in the passenger area for improved comfort. The SP version’s seat is flat, in line with the motard style, to facilitate shifting forward and backward on the seat while riding.
Hypermotard 950 Engine
The Hypermotard 950 family is equipped with a revised version of the 937 cu cm twin-cylinder Ducati Testastretta 11°. The twin-cylinder engine has been radically revised (and lightened by 1.5 kg). It outputs 4 more horsepower than its predecessor, achieving 114 hp at 9,000 rpm and a flat torque curve peaking at 9.8 kgm at 7,250 rpm..

Hypermotard 950 Technical Data
Overview of Hypermotard 950 Engine
New Testastretta 11°
The new Hypermotard 950 family utilizes a 4-valve engine with a water-cooled cylinder, featuring a bore x stroke of 94 mm x 67.5 mm designed to achieve a perfect balance between usability and performance: this is the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine which provides maximum power of 113 hp @ 9,000 rpm and torque of 97.9 Nm @ 7,500 rpm.
This new engine uses technical solutions which directly reflect Ducati's engineering know-how and have led to the creation of an extremely fluid and stable engine: the 11° valve overlap confirms the excellent results obtained in the Multistrada 1200 family and optimizes the exhaust and intake stages with consequent steady operation at medium and low speeds. Targeted fuel injectors aim the jet of fuel directly at the hotter rear end of the intake valve so that all fuel is atomised; a secondary air system similar to that of the 1299 Panigale enables the engine's operation to be optimised thanks to the controlled flow of oxygen which reduces cyclical combustion dispersion, thus effectively eliminating unburnt fuel.
Ultimately, Ducati has managed to obtain a new engine that is extremely enjoyable, performs excellently and which can significantly limit emissions of unburnt fuel.
The Ride-by-Wire system, which is present on all the models in the Hypermotard 950 family, allows 3 different engine mappings to be used to control torque and power:
113 hp with sporting "HIGH" delivery
113 hp with progressive "MEDIUM" delivery
75 hp with progressive "LOW" delivery
The structural features of the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine, together with the use of the Ride-by-Wire system which controls the opening of the throttle body butterflies on the basis of the input received, are the starting point in obtaining the Modes de Conduite for the new Hypermotard 950 models.
Each Riding Mode has a preset engine mapping, which can be adjusted and customised to suit rider needs.
The 2-1 exhaust system features 50 mm exhaust headers and valves which flow into a new single silencer using high absorption technology and finished in black with stainless steel endcaps. The system includes a catalytic converter and two lambda sensors, and is completely compliant with Euro 4 regulations.
The new engine is equipped with an APTC oil bath clutch with ‘slipper' functionality. Its design uses a progressive self-servo system and plates with a high wear coefficient, increasing the torque available with all other factors being constant, and reducing clutch spring loading and lever effort. It is cable actuated, which has proven to be the best solution for the application in terms of build simplicity. The slipper function intervenes when the drive force is reversed, and reduces the pressure on the clutch discs to prevent wheel hop and maintain the vehicle's stability during aggressive downshifts.
Service Interval of 30.000 km
Thanks to the constant investment by Ducati in quality and reliability, the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine keeps excellent maintenance intervals: valve adjustment is now scheduled for every 30.000 km which is a great advantage for Ducati customers.
Overview of Hypermotard 950 Chassis
New Trellis frame
The Hypermotard 950 family of bikes is equipped with a tubular steel Trellis frame with 34 mm main section tubes, 25.5° rake, 104 mm trail and 30 mm offset, dimensions which allow steady and safe control without compromising the agility typical of this motorbike. The frame connects into the seat rail and, as in the Multistrada 1200, includes an intermediate section in engineering polymer. A wide 70° steering angle allows great handling, while a wheel base starting at 1,485 mm maximises stability at high speeds.
The Hypermotard 950 guarantees a dominant riding position thanks to well-placed handlebar and footpegs which keep the rider upright, giving him an excellent view of the road and his surroundings. A comfortable seat is placed at a height of 870 mm, which can be reduced to 850 mm with an accessory low seat from the Ducati Performance catalogue.
Bosch-Brembo braking system
The front braking system features a pair of Brembo M4.32 monobloc 4-piston radial callipers, which are activated by the brake master cylinder with its 4-position adjustable lever on the Hypermotard 950 and Hyperstrada 950 and by the radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable 5-position lever on the 950 SP model. The front discs are 320 mm, while on the rear there is a single 245 mm disc with a single Brembo calliper.
All the new Hypermotard 950s are also equipped with a multilevel Bosch 9MP ABS as standard that make braking safe and effective in any road conditions.
This component ensures optimum braking performance in the sector, a typical feature of every Ducati.
The rear suspension includes a Sachs monoshock with adjustable extension and preload, which allows rear wheel travel of 150 mm
The rear suspension of the new Hypermotard 950 family relies on the exclusive die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm, which was specially designed to provide strength and guarantee excellent control of the rear axle. This elegant mechanical solution helps emphasise the bold and sporty character of the new models.
Overview of Hypermotard 950 Equipment
ABS Bosch 9MP
The Hypermotard 950 family is equipped with the latest Bosch 9MP ABS, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack. This unrivalled combination of safety and braking power provides shorter stopping distances and greater stability under braking. The system integrates perfectly with the Riding Modes and has two operation levels.
Level 1, for Sport Riding Mode, ensures high braking performance with reduced anti lift-up control for sport use on the road. Level 2, for Touring and Urban Riding Modes, offers excellent stability on braking and maximum control over rear wheel lift.
Riders who wish to try out unassisted braking performance can disable the ABS from the instrument panel menu. The ABS will remain disabled at the next key-on and this setting can be stored for each Riding Mode.
Ducati Safety Pack (DSP)
The whole range of the new Hypermotard family is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which highlights the extent to which Ducati is focused on the issue of road safety. Designed to maximise the control of the bike and active safety while riding, the DSP includes the Brembo braking system with Bosch ABS in its latest 9MP version, and 8-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC).
Ducati Riding Modes marked a turning point in motorcycle engineering and allow a choice to be made, depending on the model, from preset modes to optimise the vehicle's performance on the basis of the rider's riding style and the environmental conditions.
All members of the Hypermotard 950 family offer 3 Riding Modes which are programmed to instantly change the engine torque and the intervention levels of the ABS and Ducati Traction Control even while ridin. The Riding Modes of the Hypermotard 950 and Hyperstrada 950 are as below:
SPORT: The Sport Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a direct response from the RbW on acceleration, reduced intervention from the DTC system and the level 1 setting (high braking efficiency) from the ABS with reduced control over rear wheel lift.
TOURING: The Touring Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a more gradual response from the RbW on acceleration, greater intervention from the DTC system and level 2 braking efficiency from the ABS with maximum stability on braking and lift-up control.
URBAN: The Urban Riding Mode provides 75 hp with gradual response from the RbW on acceleration, even greater intervention from the DTC system and level 2 braking efficiency from the ABS with maximum stability on braking and rear wheel lift control.
Ducati Traction Control (DTC)
An integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), the Ducati Traction Control system, which is adjustable over 8 levels (3 of which are integrated into the Riding Modes), processes the input from the wheel speed sensors to control rear wheel slip, significantly improving performance and active safety.
At the first stage, if skidding is detected, the system intervenes "softly" by delaying ignition resulting in up to a 60% reduction in torque. If this initial intervention fails to control the skid, the Ducati Traction Control software continues to delay ignition and also cuts off the fuel injection to further reduce torque, until optimal rear-wheel grip is re-established.
The compact instruments of the Hypermotard 950 family include warning lights in the upper part of the dashboard for signals relating to neutral, indicators, high beam, rev limit, oil pressure and fuel reserve, while the lower section includes an LCD display with a DOT-matrix readout to view all the other data.
The display provides data on speed, rpm, the engaged gear, mileage, trip 1 and trip 2, engine coolant temperature, ambient temperature and the time. In addition, it shows current fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed and journey time. The DOT-matrix readout permanently shows the chosen Riding Mode and the corresponding ABS and DTC levels set; it is possible to choose from 3 Riding Modes very easily whether stationary or on the move using the indicator button.
Each stage of the DTC, preset in the Riding Modes, can be tailored by the user and saved in the set-up menu.
The integral Ride-by-Wire system on the new Hypermotard 950 family includes a compact electronic throttle control, which combines perfectly with the minimalist design of the buttons. The Hypermotard 950 uses an innovative button featuring an exclusive ‘safety' function protecting the starter switch when the engine off button is pressed. The light-action clutch has traditional cable control, and the rear brake lever can be adjusted in 4 positions (5 positions for the SP model with a radial brake master cylinder). The die-cast aluminium foot pegs are painted black, have integrated heel guards, and support the brake and gear levers made from forged aluminium.
10-spoke sports alloy wheels
The new Hypermotard 950 and Hyperstrada 950 boast the latest cast-aluminium 10-spoke wheels, with a design inspired by those of the 1299 Panigale, a clear expression of Ducati's unmistakeable sporting spirit.
Headlights and indicators
The headlight is extremely light and compact and uses a single "blue-vision" filament lamp for dipped and full-beam functions, while the directional indicators employ LEDs. The rear light employs a specially designed strip of LEDs enhanced by a high-diffusion lens shaped into the sleek lines of the tailpiece. It acts both as a rear light and as a brake light. The front directional indicators are harmoniously integrated into the handguards maintaining the sleek lines of the Hypermotard as a result. On the new Hypermotard models there is also a 4-way hazard light function which can be activated by holding the left indicator button down for four seconds.
Pirelli Diablo Rosso IIThe new Hypermotard 950 sports bicompound Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres which combine high durability with excellent grip. The front wheel has a 120/70 x 17"" tyre, while the rear has a 180/55 x 17"" tyre.
Ducati guarantees all its bikes for a period of 24 months from registration, with unlimited mileage.
