It’s steeper, more exhilarating, and more user-friendly now than it was before. To make it even better, Ducati has wholly redesigned the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle, their ultimate fun bike. The new design draws inspiration from supermotard racing, and the ergonomics have been completely reworked. Riders can also anticipate a whole new chassis setup and electronics package.
Changing riders riding posture can improve rider enjoyment and rider sense of control. With its 53 mm shorter inner leg curve, the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s new handlebars are more expansive, and the sides narrower. It also features a redesigned seat, which makes riding more comfortable by reducing the amount of movement while still keeping feet firmly planted on the ground.
With its distinctive ‘beak,’ small headlight, and Daytime Running Light (DRL) for better visibility throughout the day, the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s front end conveys a strong sense of continuity with its predecessors.
With twin under-seat tailpipes and a low superstructure, the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle has a striking look. The mechanics, remarkably the light, crucial rear Trellis sub-frame, are on full display. The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle is 4 kg lighter than the previous generation, as well as being more cosmetically pleasing (the engine alone accounts for 1.5 kilograms). An all-new frame constructed of tubes of varied sizes, new wheels, aluminum-flanged brake disc and fork bodies, light-weight Marzocchi forks, and careful attention to detail allowed this to happen.
Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle – Features
Due to its lightness and clean lines, the new Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle 3rd generation has strong ties to the supermotard racing scene. It results in a bike that extreme riders will simply love.
The 14.5-liter tank and high seat (with a tiny mid-section) give the bike a competition motard look and feel. Its aggressive stance is bolstered by the dual under-tail silencers, slimline superstructure, and iconic frontal view with its sharp “beak,” including a headlight (with an outline that recalls an off-road race number holder). Adding a DRL to the front of the vehicle also gives it a more modern, technological aspect.
Thanks to a thorough re-evaluation of the riding position, the rider now has total control over the vehicle and quick response regardless of the conditions. A narrower midsection and a 53 mm shorter inner leg curve on the new model were achieved by emphasizing tapering of the rear sub-frame at the mainframe connection point. It allows riders to rest both feet firmly on the ground while retaining the same nominal seat height.
A flat and long seat with a slightly raised passenger zone is standard on the new Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle. Because the SP version’s flatness is more motard-style, it gives the rider more longitudinal flexibility. Handlebar tips have been widened by 7 degrees to enhance further the riding posture’s dominance, all in the name of better control.
Testastretta 11° engine
The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle series is powered by a sophisticated 937 cm3 Ducati Testastretta 11° two-cylinder engine. Repairs to the engine have resulted in a four-horsepower increase over the previous model (and a weight decrease of 1.5 kg). This engine can now rev as fast as 9000 times before losing power. Torque is at its highest at 7,250 rpm, but it pulls smoothly throughout the rev range. The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle has a torque ratio of about 80% at 3,000 rpm and 88% between 5,000 and 9,000 rpm.
An updated exhaust cam profile, new pistons with a 13.3:1 compression ratio, and a new exhaust system with under-seat silencers all contribute to the enhanced performance of the new engine design. Using a redesigned 53 mm throttle body and an engine control unit with Ride-by-Wire throttle, the Testastretta 11° obtains its fuel. It benefits the 2019 Ducati Hypermotard 950 and the SP version to have a lighter clutch and alternator covers, a more lightweight gear shift drum, an aluminum (rather than steel) chain tensioner, and magnesium cam covers.
The self-servo wet slipper clutch may now be used with less on-lever effort thanks to the new hydraulic control system. With a displacement of 937 cubic centimeters, the Ducati Testastretta two-cylinder engine is the most powerful in its class. There is a 30,000-kilometer interval between oil changes and Desmo Services.
The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle series has a new steel Trellis frame with tapered tubing, decreasing one kg weight. With a 25° rake, 104 mm of the trail, and a 30 mm offset, the bike’s handling is solid and stable without surrendering its characteristic agility. The frame is connected to the original Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s rear sub-frame (also made of tubular steel Trellis). When it comes to riding at great speeds, the 1,493 mm wheelbase (or 1,498 mm on the SP model) and 70° steering lock help, despite its sizeable 14.5-liter fuel tank, the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle retains its curved design and basic functionality. The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle has an aluminum swingarm with a single side.
A 4.3-inch TFT display is part of the instrumentation on the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle series. Because of the Panigale V4-inspired visuals and interface, menu navigation and setting modifications are simplified, and the selected Riding Mode is simpler to see. The Riding Mode interface shows any changes made to the settings immediately. It is accomplished using explanatory visuals and a grading scale to illustrate whether the difference is better suited for performance or safety/stability.
Headlight and indicators
The very light and small headlight assembly have a Daytime Running Light (DRL) for improved vehicle visibility throughout the day. Instead of a traditional tail light, an LED strip may be used as a stoplight and a tail light. Handguards incorporate auto-off LED indicators to keep the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s lines neat.
The compact electronic throttle on the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s Ride-by-Wire system matches the switchgear design. Brake and clutch levers can be changed concerning the handlebar. Passengers’ footpegs can be taken out. The passenger grip-strap may be tucked away when the seat is not used to keep it out of sight. A USB port is mounted under the seat of the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati.
Wheel travel on the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle 170 mm is provided by new, fully adjustable 45 mm Marzocchi forks with aluminum fork bodies/tubes. The new device weighs half as much as the previous one. The 950 is equipped with a rear Sachs shock with a 150 mm wheel travel that can be adjusted. There are no fixed shocks on this bike; instead, the front fork and rear shock have fully adjustable Ohlins forks with 185mm of travel each. The rear shock has 175mm of travel.
To regulate the front brakes, a radial brake pump with a 5-position adjustable lever uses Brembo M4.32 4-piston radial monobloc calipers. Brembo calipers hold the 245mm of the rear disc, kept in place by a single 320mm Brembo caliper on the front wheels. Excellent braking performance, a hallmark of Ducatis for decades, is only possible with top-of-the-line components.
Wheels and tires
The Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle’s aluminum wheels include three Y-spokes. The cross-section of the front wheel is 3.5 inches, while the cross-section of the back wheel is 5.5 inches. The bike rides on Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, with fronts measuring 120/70 ZR17 and rears measuring 180/55/55 ZR17. The overall weight of these wheels has been lowered by 800 grams compared to the previous model. For the Hypermotard 950 SP 2019 Ducati Naked Motorcycle, Marchesini used lightweight forged wheels with three Y-spokes with an overall cross-section of 3.5″ in the front and 5.5″ in the back. The SP is outfitted with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires, with 120/70 ZR7 up front and 180/55 ZR177 on the rear.
