What happens when a dirt bike and a Panigale have a baby? You get a Hypermotard! Ducat’s line of Italian-bred supermotos is a bit of an oddball among the Bologna-based manufacturer’s lineup, it trades luxury comforts and sleek lines for rugged performance that is equally as at home on dirt or tarmac. The 2023 iteration of this bike didn’t receive any updates over last year, but the package remains a standout among the competition.
The 2023 Ducati Hypermotard harnesses a version of the 11-degree Testeretta two-cylinder engine – the same platform that can be found across the Ducati lineup, including in the Monster and the SuperSport. The engine cranks out a perfectly respectable 114 hp and 71 lb-ft of torque.
Ducati offers the Hypermotard in three unique packages – the basic 950, the RVE, and the SP. Each package is fundamentally similar, while the RVE and SP add some unique goodies. While the standard model comes from the factory equipped with features like daytime running lights, a dual direction quick-shifter, and a Bosch Intertial measurement unit, the SP model also gets Marchesni forged wheels, some carbon fibre bits, and Ohlins front and rear suspension. As a result of the upgraded suspension and carbon fibre, the SP sits a little higher and weighs about 4 lbs less. The RVE package is a limited edition version of the standard bike which features a graffiti-styled livery and is limited to just 100 bikes.
The 2023 Ducati Hypermotard 950 starts at $14,995 USD/ $17,395 CAD
The 2023 Ducati Hypermotard 950 RVE starts at $16,095 and is not currently available in the current market.
The 2023 Ducati Hypermotard 950SP starts at $18,695 USD/ $21,295 CAD
