So, what do you get when you cross a Hypermotard with a Multistrada? Er... a Ducati Hyperstrada. It's a Hypermotard that's been kitted out to go long-distance touring...

Ducati have unveiled the 2013 Hypermotard line-up just in time for the EICMA and alongside the Hypermotard and Hypermotard SP, the range now also includes the new Hyperstrada. While the Hypermotard duo continues to provide no-holds-barred supermoto-style thrills, the Hyperstrada is built for longer-distance travel and is powered by a new 821cc Testastretta V-twin that produces 110 horsepower and 89Nm of torque.

Like with other bikes in the Hypermotard line-up, the new Ducati Hyperstrada gets a steel tube trellis frame and a host of high-tech electronics, including ride-by-wire throttle, 3-level ABS, 8-level traction control and selectable riding modes that change power delivery to suit riding conditions.

With a touring screen, touring seat, passenger grabhandles, quickly-detachable side- and top-mounted luggage and even a centre-stand, the Hyperstrada is just that much more practical for longer journeys and is very much the ‘tourer’ in the Hypermotard line-up.

The Hyperstrada, which weighs 181kg dry, is fitted with 43mm USD Kayaba forks, Sachs adjustable rear shock absorber, 17-inch cast-aluminium wheels shod with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tyres and is priced at 12,790 euros. Adventure touring bikes seem to be very much in vogue these days, so we suppose there should be no dearth of takers for this machine from Ducati.
