Bring the Bling: Ducati Hypermotard 1100S

The Hypermotard 1100S sure does look like it can be a bit of fun to ride...

For those who might not be happy with the standard Hypermotard, Ducati are now showing the Hypermotard 1100S at the EICMA in Milan. The bike is endowed with a few extras that should, if nothing else, help impress your mates down at the pub. For example, there’s 50mm USD Marzocchi front forks, with DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating for reduced stiction, and fully adjustable Öhlins monoshock at the back.

The Hypermotard 1100S also gets Brembo brakes with monobloc calipers at the front, Marchesini forged alloy wheels (which are lighter than the standard items and help reduce unsprung weight…) and Pirelli Diablo Corsa tyres, which are said to offer very high levels of grip. Various carbonfibre bits are used throughout the 1100S, which is only available in red and black. Now all you need to do is learn how to get it sideways like Ruben Xaus…
