In the modern world, there are a huge number of motorcycles that differ in engine size, wheel diameter, exterior and, of course, speed. Among sports bikes, there is a supermoto class, a prominent representative of which is the Ducati Hypermotard 1100 motorcycles. What is remarkable about this model? Let's try to figure it out.
Ducati Motorcycle - People's Choice Award
When the first design work on the Italian representative of the super bikes was completed, the company was happy to present its concept. The future Ducati Hypermotard became a real highlight of the Milan Salon, where it was awarded the title of "Best in Show". It is rare for a superbike to win in such a category, since the designers focus not on the appearance of the motorcycle, but on its technical characteristics.
Ducati Hypermotard: TTX
Exterior isn't that important for a supermoto, and the Motard 1100 proves it despite its sophisticated features. The technical part of the Ducati Hypermotard is no worse than its externalview.
Take, for example, handling. Despite the rather large weight, which is 179 kg, as well as rather large dimensions, the Ducati Hypermotard is incredibly stable on the road. It is very easy to control it. The most thoughtful chassis, which is attached to a rigid spatial tubular frame, goes well with a frisky and incredibly powerful power unit. This two-cylinder L-shaped engine is capable of unleashing 90 "horses", and its volume is 1078 cm3. The torque limit has a mark of 102.9 Nm, and it is reached at 4750 rpm.
These characteristics ensure that the bike reacts instantly to the gas supply, and also allows you to quickly accelerate, for example, at the exit of the turn.
A six-speed gearbox coupled to a powerful engine with a multi-plate clutch makes it possible to accelerate over two hundred kilometers, which is an incredible result for motards.
The Ducati Hypermotard 1100 gets the kind of awesome suspension that many sport bikes can only dream of. If we consider it in more detail, it becomes clear that no one was even going to save on components:
- Front is a 50mm adjustable Marzocchi upside-down fork.
- Swingarm rear suspension equipped with a Sachs monoshock, which differs from its closest competitors not only in its impressive performance, but also in its colossalset of adjustments.
- Marchesini alloy wheels have a high level of resistance to all kinds of overloads and shocks.
- Sport tires from Bridge Stone.
- Front and rear brake discs - Brembo.
Agree that this rig is impressive.
When you sit on the Ducati Hypermotard 1100, you feel that it was created with soul. A comfortable fit allows you to relax and focus only on the road. With a wheelbase of 1.45 m, the bike seems rather bulky and awkward, but it is far from being the case. He reacts quickly and clearly follows the commands of the biker, holds the road well.
The dashboard is informative, made in the style of MotoGP. It is capable of both displaying information on the scoreboard and storing all data on the technical condition of the motorcycle, analyzing the operation of all components and assemblies. All available data can be uploaded to a special program installed on the computer, and then using it to independently analyze, for example, the operation of the engine at certain speeds. This allows you to quickly identify problems both in the operation of the engine and in the transmission, cooling system. It is worth noting that the software is sold separately and recorded on a branded USB flash drive. Also on the media there are useful programs with which you can do chip tuning.
Italian with index 1100 boasts folding mirrors. They not only provide the biker with an excellent view, butand are part of the handlebar protection. The road bike itself easily turns into a sports bike. In addition to the usual Hypermotard, models with factory tuning are supplied to the market, the main differences of which are:
- low friction fork;
- back "back pack" shock absorber supplied by Ohlins;
- radial front brakes;
- forged wheels;
- tires of the Italian brand Pirelli.
After reviewing all the technical characteristics, we can conclude that the Italian manufacturer has done the almost impossible. Ducati has created a motorcycle that can be considered a racing bike, but is also incredibly comfortable to use for daily commuting on public roads.
Motorcyclists, communicating with each other, highly appreciated the efforts of Italian designers. Reviews of the Ducati Hypermotard are extremely positive. The vast majority of motorists note the high build quality and comfort while driving. And also the fact that the pleasure of driving a bike can be obtained even at speeds over 200 km / h, because the motorcycle always clearly responds to every action of the biker.
