2014 Ducati HS821
Hyper Performance, Extreme Versatility
The Hyperstrada extends the hypermotard concept to fascinating new horizons. ABS, DTC, windshield, side bags, dedicated ergonomics and a series of touring features offering a new riding experience for everyone who loves curves, even when they're far away from home. Hyperstrada: broaden the horizons of your emotions.
The new Hypermotard family has done it again with the latest design which offers, as with the first version, a stunning looking bike that is a joy to ride.
The original dirtbike-inspired look has become even more daring thanks to the visibly higher ground clearance, the high and tapered tail and the narrow sides. These are the design elements that characterise the new version and which have been created for a motorbike that can be used for urban commuting, touring or for a thrilling day-out on the track.
Although maintaining the typical hand protectors of off-road models, the new Hypermotard offers redesigned rear-view mirrors in order to blend in perfectly with the model’s clean design and the need to use it in the city. The attention paid to the flow of the lines has allowed the essential and minimalist image of this family to be maintained, despite the complexity of integrating the new Ducati 821 cc Testastretta 11° water-cooled engine.
The Hyperstrada model is of a completely new size for the Hypermotard family: a unique and innovative motorbike which represents a kind of “crossover” between the Motard world and that of Touring. This incredibly versatile vehicle opens up new and thrilling horizons for motorbike enthusiasts and further emphasises the potential of this new family. Featuring a more relaxed riding position and with full Touring equipment as standard, the Hyperstrada is the ideal travelling companion thanks to its generous load capacity and the safety guaranteed by the ABS and DTC, combined in the Ducati Safety Pack. There are three Riding Modes available for this specific version: Sport, Touring and Urban
