Ducati Hypermotard 950 teased; to be launched in India soon
Ducati India has teased an upcoming motorbike on its social media handles. It is expected to be the Hypermotard 950 and should be launched here soon. The premium two-wheeler has an aggressive design and gets several electronic riding aids. It draws power from a 937cc, Testastretta, V-twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that generates 114hp of maximum power. Here are more details.
Ducati Hypermotard 950 sits on a trellis frame and has a sloping fuel tank with extensions, removable footpegs, a tapered aluminium handlebar with LED blinkers integrated on the knuckle guards, a prominent beak, and twin under-seat exhausts. The bike packs a 4.3-inch TFT instrument cluster, an all-LED lighting setup, and a USB power socket. It rides on 17-inch wheels and gets a flat seat.
Ducati Hypermotard 950 runs on a Euro5-compliant, 937cc Testastretta 11-degree, liquid-cooled engine paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The mill generates a maximum power of 114hp at 9,000rpm and a peak torque of 96Nm at 7,250rpm.
In terms of safety equipment, the Ducati Hypermotard 950 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with traction control, cornering ABS, wheelie control, and riding modes. Suspension duties on the motorbike are taken care of by 45mm Marzocchi forks on the front side and a Sachs mono-shock unit on the rear end.
Ducati will reveal the pricing and availability details of the Hypermotard 950 in India at the time of its launch. However, it is likely to sport a price figure of around Rs. 12.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
