XXX: 122 Photos of the Ducati Hyperstrada

05/27/2013 @ 12:51 pm, by Jensen Beeler20 COMMENTS


Based off the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard, which got all the attention at EICMA, the 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada is the more touring friendly version of the new water-cooled maxi-motard machine from Bologna. Like its tardy sibling, the Hyperstrada features the new 821cc Testastretta 11° engine, which is good for 110hp, incorporates among other things a lower seat and suspension package for easier on-road touring.

Other obvious changes are the 50 liters of removable side luggage, helping to emphasize the touring purpose of the Hyperstrada. A motorcycle built to travel the Italian countryside, so it should come as no surprise then that when it came time for Ducati to debut the Hyperstrada to the international press, the Italians didn’t have far to look for a suitable venue.

Of course with an international launch comes a bevy of photos, and so we have 122 high-resolution pictures of the Ducati Hyperstrada after the jump for your viewing pleasure. If you are like us, this is as close as we have come to the new Hyperstrada, since we weren’t one of the chosen ones to get an invite to Italy last week.

Never fear however, A&R should be swinging a leg over one of these Stradatards soon enough. Enjoy the photos after the jump until then.

    Those I-talians have a flair for the artistic, both with motorcycle design and photography.
    and the new pop up ad required to see the pictures is reasonable and motorcycle-related!

  • Jensen Beeler

    There should be no pop-ups on A&R…

  • Grimey Benson


    I was thinking the same thing. Me thinks Mr.X hath some spyware all up in his business.

  • Max

    I have at least four different monitors I have to change backgrounds on every time these photo posts roll around…

    interesting subliminal messages in Ducati advertising
    Is the rider/passenger an older male/trophy wife scenario or father/daughter touring team? LOL

    The bike is very sexy…

  • Judge

    Nope, Mr. X is right. I got the pop up too. Mine was for Optima Batteries. In the style of Youtube’s “you can skip this ad in 5 sec”.

    I am thinking, trophy wife or not, she is going to want the top box if they are going any further than down to the shop for some milk…… that looks a long way up on that little pillion seat!

  • Markus

    Nice! We also posted these images in germany today. Great bike, really great photos!

    Kind regards

  • MrDefo

    It seems to be a lot like the Kawasaki Versys in form and function.

    looks nice.

  • Damo

    Went to the dealer and sat on one with my wife this past weekend (she is 5’11” and I am 6’1″) seating position felt great for both myself and the pillion.

    Probably pulling the trigger on a base Hypermotard REALLY soon.

  • TexusTim

    I can believe there isnt 123 pictures what a rip off….lol

  • Jensen Beeler

    My apologies Tim. Will try to do better next time… :(

    Nice bike. I like the power/torque, ergo and styling …. not the price. 16K once wheeled off the floor …. it’s just money, but a lot of it though … LOL

  • mxs

    Definitely flash pop-up advert …. you might want to look into it.

  • TheSwede

    Gorgeous photos. The HDR shots of the bike on the streets with the little town nestled in rolling green hills and that bright blue sky in the background are especially beautiful. Top notch.

  • mxs

    Pop-up test …. you can delete


    cool dan beautifull pics

  • MikeD

    Not a fan of the bike but the Photography work is just awesome on most of the scenic pics.
