The 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939 & the Multistrada 1200

These two bikes offer extraordinary performance and are the most favored. They both have distinctions that set them apart.  One thing is for sure, they provide a smooth riding experience.

The 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939

Considered by many to be incredibly versatile, the Hypermotard 939 is the best bike to have. The handling of the bike is pretty smooth and it is easy to maneuver.  However, the motor is big enough to take long rides delivering a powerful performance.

This year, the Hypermotard went from 821 cc to 937 cc which increases power a bit with respect to its predecessor. Horsepower at 9,000 RPM is 113 hp with a torque of 65.8 lb/ft. The design includes new pistons, rods, crankshaft, new oil cooler and an exhaust system compliant with Euro4.

The design of the front fork was changed as well.  Beyond this and the engine, the Hypermotard keeps the beautiful design of previous models.  The regular model can be yours at a cost of $12,695 and you can get SP model at $15,595.

Multistrada 1200

This bike is a result of Ducati’s experience at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.  This is a bike that combines performance and strength to deliver a motorcycle that will get you there through the toughest roads. Made of carbon fiber components, the Multistrada 1200 has a sport look inspired on races.  This is the bike that will deliver you a great performance during heavy duty running.

It has manually adjustable Ohlins suspension on the front and back. This helps to handling and precision and allowing some customization at the same time.  You can adjust the fork to meet your needs and not the other way around.

The exhaust system is both sporty and powerful.  The system includes a single tailpipe, especially designed, with a carbon fiber sleeve.
