Ducati unveils Hypermotard, not Scrambler

Ducati Hypermotard SP

Visitors to the World Ducati Week in Misano, Italy, were able to view the 2015 Ducati Hypermotard SP in its new colours, but the company kept the wraps on its upcoming Scrambler.

Ducatisti were only allowed to view the Scrambler inside a yellow shipping container in small groups with no phones or cameras. No public images are yet available of the bike, although those who saw it say it has a retro look with an Iron Man headlight.
Meanwhile, the most aggressive of the Hypermotard now comes in a tricolour Corse paintjob. It was unveiled by three-time World Superbike champion Aussie Troy Bayliss and 2011 WSBK champion Carlos Checa.
It is powered by the 110hp Testastretta 11° 821cc engine with the three-mode selection from the 1199 Panigale S: Race 110hp (HIGH), Sport110 hp (MEDIUM) and Wet 75hp (LOW). It also has Panigale’s three-level ABS and eight-level traction control.
The long-travel suspension consists of Marzocchi USD forks and an Öhlins rear shock and it’s shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres. Other tasty bits include variable-diameter bars, carbon fibre fenders and engine cover guards, a radial brake pump and five-way adjustable lever and a special seat.
The Hypermotard weighs just 171kg and will be available later this year, but no prices have yet been released.
The Scrambler is expected to be unveiled at the Milan motorcycle show in November and probably available for sale early next year.
