Team Red’s recent press release tells us that around 25,000 individuals made their final decision via voting directly at the expo or online, with 35% putting the Hypermotard first. That makes this the 12th consecutive year – out of eighteen – that Ducati locked in on this particular award.
This platform is capable of 659cc of punt, or 77.5hp (max.) @ 9,750rpm with 46.4lb-ft of yank available @ 8,000rpm (85hp @ 9,500rpm and 49.4lb-ft available @ 8,000rpm, if fitted with the recommended race-specific pipe and airbox cover/filter).
