Video: Ducati Hypermotard – License to Thrill

It is good to see that if this motorcycle racing thing doesn’t pan out, Nicky Hayden has at least a more promising future on the big screen than say….John McGuinness.

Helping Ducati hock its now water-cooled Ducati Hypermotard, Hayden earns his paycheck with wheelies, enduos, and a little bit of drifting for good measure in this James Bond-esque commercial.

Our thoughts? Exactly how long was that woman in the bathroom (i.e. did she fall in)? And, Ruben Xaus makes a cameo as the security guard? Awesome.

    sorry but i would have followed her into the powder room……..then off for a ride post you know what.

    that high slung end can, dunno. was just getting used to low slung GP cans.

    Nice little video. I like the 2-1 setup, though one of the headers looks a little fat(CAT?).

  • Jean

    Did Ducati already set a date for the press test ?

    @JohnEE : The high position Termi is available as a full exhaust system or slipon only, like the one featured in the video.

  • Jensen Beeler

    Yup. We’re not invited.

    Chick took one hell of a deuce if Nicky had time for a track day…

  • Jean

    @Jensen : Any chance you can share the event date ? A friend got an SP on order and was told April delivery. I’m very curious to see how it will compare to the old air cooled torquy 1100DS engine.

    that bike is bad but that chick is smokin hot…must be in Nicky’s contract !

    Hilarious. I just spilled my drink.

  • JoeD

    From my experiences with both, I would have left some cash on the table and not looked back. Nice Video.

  • Singletrack

    What track is that? Looks amazing.
    Judging by the palm trees and scrubby mountains, it’s likely in Spain.

    That Xaus cameo is awesome. Godfather of the Hyperslide

    @JoeD – Haha…couldn’t have said it better! Great video…
