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!

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

  3. Grimey Benson says:


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

  4. Max says:

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

  5. paulus - Thailand says:

    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…

  6. Judge says:

    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”.

  7. andrewinuk says:

    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!

  8. Markus says:

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

    Kind regards

  9. MrDefo says:

    Here too, also prompted for the battery video.

  10. Ronald Burgundy says:

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

    looks nice.

  11. Damo says:

    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.

  12. TexusTim says:

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

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

  14. mxs says:

    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

  15. mxs says:

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

  16. TheSwede says:

    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.

  17. mxs says:

    Pop-up test …. you can delete

  18. cool dan beautifull pics

  19. MikeD says:

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