HYPERMOTARD 950 RVE

GAME ON. LEVEL UP.
The “Graffiti” graphics on the 950 RVE version emphasise the bike’s lightness and aggression with a high-impact design inspired by urban graffiti.

For the first time across such an extensive, complex surface, Ducati has utilised ultra-thin waterslide decals during the painting phase. The application process is particularly lengthy and complicated and calls for highly specialised skills. The end result is comparable to that of airbrushed bodywork in terms of both aesthetics and feel.

RIDING THE THRILL
From design to performance, the Hypermotard 950 is all about sheer stripped-down adrenaline. Ergonomics are optimised to ensure the rider is in full control and enjoys maximum responsiveness whatever the conditions. The engine, rich in terms of both power and torque, and the excellent handling only add to that high-performance, easy to ride motard temperament. A bike with a unique character, ready to offer excitement and fun.

MOTARD STYLE
The Hypermotard 950 reveals its sports roots with its clean lines and slender volumes, the 14.5-litre tank styled like that of a racing motard.

The Hypermotard 950 range is extended with the arrival of the new Hypermotard 950 RVE, which rides the wave of success that the Hypermotard 950 Concept achieved in 2019, presented at the prestigious Concours d’Elegance Villa d’Este. The aggressive look, comprising clean and slender shapes and surfaces, is enhanced by under-tail double silencers, minimal fairings and the iconic front section, an authentic and distinctive element of all Hypermotard models. From the front, the single headlight with Daytime Running Light (DRL) makes an impact and gives the Hypermotard 950 a technological and modern appearance, for an unmistakeable look even during the day.

DUCATI TESTASTRETTA 11°
The Hypermotard 950 mounts the latest evolution of the 937 cc Ducati Testastretta 11°, 1.5 kg lighter and 4 hp more powerful than the previous version, with overall power reaching 114 hp at 9,000 rpm. Torque hits a peak of 9.8 Kgm at 7,250 rpm with a flat curve ensuring significant and continuous drive: 80% of torque is already available at 3,000 rpm, 88% from 5,000 rpm to 9,500 rpm. Performance of this kind is achieved thanks to an increased compression ratio, an exhaust cam profile and an exhaust system with silencers positioned under the seat. The Testastretta 11° is fed by a 53 mm throttle body and controlled by an ECU and Ride-by-Wire gas control, designed to ensure smooth, easy to manage delivery. The Hypermotard 950 twin-cylinder also boasts and more lightweight clutch and alternator covers, a lighter gear shift drum, aluminium belt tensioner, magnesium head covers and a hydraulic-control wet clutch with anti-wheelie function.

A CHASSIS BUILT TO ENTERTAIN
Ergonomics, agility in the changes of direction and stability through the turns: the chassis of the Hypermotard 950 has been created to offer maximum enjoyment and control. The steel trellis frame with variable-section tubes, the 25° steering head angle and the 104 mm front wheel trail with 30 mm offset allow for stable and secure control, while the 1,493 mm wheelbase (1,498 mm for the SP version SP) ensures stability even at high speed. The rear sub-frame has a particularly tapered shape in the area where it connects to the mainframe, which has allowed for a narrow-sided saddle, with the inner leg reduced by 53 mm to allow the rider to touch the ground more easily with both feet. The variable section aluminium handlebar serves to support the radial pumps with a separate brake/clutch oil tank, controlled with adjustable levers.

When it comes to adrenaline, the suspension has it covered: a fully-adjustable 45 mm Marzocchi fork with aluminium outer tubes and stanchions, with 170 mm travel at the front, and an adjustable Sachs single shock with 150 mm travel at the rear. The SP version offers motard-style riding, the Öhlins suspension ensuring boosted wheel travel (+ 15 mm at the front, + 25 at the rear). At the front, a radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable lever operates two Brembo M4.32 monobloc radial 4-piston callipers that act on 320 mm discs with refined aluminium flanges (for a total weight saving of 600 grams), while at the rear we find a single 245 mm disc and a single Brembo calliper.

ADVANCED ELECTRONICS
The Hypermotard 950 flaunts the latest advanced electronics based on the use of the 6-axis IMU, able to instantaneously identify the bike’s roll, pitch and yaw. The Hypermotard 950 electronics package includes ABS Bosch Cornering EVO with Slide function by Brake, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) EVO, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO, and Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down EVO, available as an accessory, or as standard with the RVE and SP versions. The Hypermotard 950 can be configured according to three Riding Modes. The Sport mode is suitable for sports-style riding on winding roads or on the track, delivering the full 114 hp of the Ducati twin according to a performance-oriented electronic setup. Touring mode is ideal for urban and out of town outings and for those who prefer a clean, smooth ride. The 114 hp of the Ducati twin are delivered according to a more safety-oriented electronic setup. Urban mode is for use in conditions of poor grip, where the Testastretta 11° twin is limited to 75 hp and all electronic settings are oriented towards maximum safety.

PURE ENJOYMENT
Agile, precise, responsive, with a centred riding position and a compact, essential design. The Hypermotard 950 is the Ducati “fun-bike” par excellence: perfectly at ease on urban routes, it adapts seamlessly to mountain paths thanks to the responsiveness of the 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine, the efficiency of the suspension and the contribution made by the advanced electronic equipment. The instrumentation on the Hypermotard 950 comprises a 4.3” TFT display with graphics and interface inspired by those of the Panigale V4 which, thanks to explanatory diagrams that detail the system in question, ensure simple menu navigation, prompt identification of the selected Riding Mode and the rapid adjustment of settings. Every moment on board the Hypermotard 950 becomes one of pure enjoyment.
