Ducati is getting ready for the international press launch of the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard in Ronda, Spain this week, which means we have a bevy of photos to share with you. Dropping its air-cooled dual-spark v-twin motor for an 821cc water-cooled lump, the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard is a truly a brand new model, from the ground up.

Getting cross-polinated with some of the design features found in the Ducati Multistrada 1200, the new Hypermotard really is a middleweight option to its bigger-displacement counterpart, though it still retains a presence of its own. Powerful and light, the Ducati Hypermotard continues to be a two-wheeled hooligan machine with enough suspension to soak up the bumps along the way.

We think Ducati did a nice job of retaining the Hyper’s unique character, while fitting the model into the company’s current motorcycle range and long-term goals. Of course, we haven’t gotten to ride one, and since we’re not in Spain this week, it looks like we’ll have to wait for the bike’s arrival at dealerships in March. Until then, there are 165 high-resolution photos waiting for you after the jump, enjoy.

    I’ve never been much of a fan of the supermotard-style of bike, but I confess to really warming up to them lately. No doubt, Hayden inspires my inner hooligan with this set, too. Great images.

    Have you ever riden one? If not, def do yourself a favor and try and get one one for a min. I had 950 SMR for a while. Nothing quite like the smile you’ll have locked on your face while riding these types. They’re bananas.

    I wish Suzuki would make something like this with their SV engines, so as to get around the Ducati tax.

    @Patron:

    No, I haven’t managed to ride one of these. Actually, I think that they might be a little bit too hyper for me; with this much power, I’d probably lose my license in about 12 minutes. The little Suzuki 400 supermoto looks to be more my speed. lol
