Ergonomics

2020 Hypermotard 950 Ducati Naked Bike carefully considers the riding style and is rewarded with complete control over the vehicle and quick response in all situations. Emphasis on tapping the rear subframe at the mainframe attachment point results in a narrow mid-section seat and inner leg crew measuring 53 mm smaller than the previous model. It makes it significantly easier for riders to keep both feet firmly on the ground – no change in nominal seat height.

The seat of the new Hypermotard 950 is flat and extended with a slightly higher passenger zone for extra comfort. On the other hand, the flatness of the SP version has more motorized styling to enable even longer movement while riding. The ride position has been made even more dominant by increasing the handlebar tips to 7 to improve control.

Testastretta 11° engine

2020 Hypermotard 950 Ducati Naked Bike has the latest 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11 ° two-cylinder engine powers the Hypermotard 950 series.

It provides continuous pulling power in the rev range with a torque peak at 9.8 Kgm at 7,250 rpm. On the Hypermotard 950, up to 80% of the torque is available at 3,000 rpm between 5 and 9,000 rpm up to 88%.

Improved performance is due to the new piston with a compression ratio of 13.3: 1 (greater than 12.6: 1 on the previous iteration), a revised exhaust cam profile, and a new exhaust system with a subset silencer. A further 53mm throttle body delivers petrol to the Testastrata 11 while a new engine control unit and ride-by-wire control throttle power delivery. The Hypermotard 950 and SP models include redesigned lighter clutch and alternator cores, a lighter gear shift drum, an aluminum (instead of steel) chain tensioner, and a magnesium cam core.

Because of the updated hydraulic control system, the self-serving wet sleeper clutch can now be operated with less on-lever effort. The Ducati Testastretta’s 937 cm3 dual cylinder engine has similarly long maintenance intervals: oil changes are required every 15,000 km, and a Desmo service is required every 30,000 km.

Frame

2020 Hypermotard 950 Ducati Naked Bike has a newly designed steel trail frame with tapered tubing, saving one kilogram more than the previous model.

The frame is attached to the back subframe (tubular steel trails design) reminiscent of the original Hypermotard. A good steering lock of 70 allows better handling, while a 1,493 mm wheelbase (1,498 mm on the SP variant) improves speed stability. With a 14.5-liter fuel tank, the Hypermotard 950 has an impressive range without sacrificing its essential, delicate aesthetics. The Hypermotard 950 uses a one-way aluminum swingarm.
