Ducati Hypermotard 1100 S

The Hypermotard 1100 takes on urban canyons and attacks mountain curves with total abandon. Its purpose is single-minded: to thrill.

Its ‘motard’ styling and stance combine with Ducati’s ‘sportsbike’ smooth and powerful L-Twin engine to deliver the best of both these two motorcycling worlds. With a riding position to dominate, the exceptionally slim, compact and incredibly light Hypermotard is ready to take on every road with big-bore acceleration.

High performance starts with attitude and the Hypermotard packs the most aggressive attitude of the entire Ducati range. Reduced to its essentials, it’s an extreme performance, over-the-top motorcycle that’s just looking for action.

What this means to you: Whether you want Italian passion and engineering or one of the hottest bikes around, Ducati says it best, “Two wheels, one purpose, to thrill.”
