Adding ‘S’ to the Hypermotard takes the thrills and road holding to the highest level.

The new lightweight 48mm Kayaba forks on the ‘S’ include a durable low friction, DLC (diamond-like carbon) black coating to the sliders, making the Hypermotard ‘S’ respond effortlessly to every minute variation in the tarmac; improving on its already impressive road holding. The advanced ‘S’ suspension is further enhanced with an Öhlins remote reservoir rear shock, renowned in racing circles as the ultimate performance choice. This incredible shock is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping as well as spring preload. This ensures that the ‘S’ is readily adaptable to every riding style and road it challenges.

Hyper Data

Supplied with the 1100 S, the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA), which includes PC software, a USB-ready data retrieval card and instructions, enables owners to review and analyse the performance of the bike and its rider, and make comparisons between various channels of information.

The system records numerous channels of data including throttle opening, vehicle speed, engine rpm, engine temperature, distance travelled, laps and lap times. It also automatically calculates engine rpm and vehicle speed data so as to also display gear selection as an additional channel of information. At the end of a ride or track session, up to 2mb (approximately 3.5 hours) of data can be downloaded ready to compare, analyse and get an inside view of the performance of both the rider and the Hypermotard.

With a bike as capable as the Hypermotard 1100 S, superior stopping power is fundamental. Using the same Brembo Monobloc calipers used on our top Superbikes, world class braking performance is assured. Each caliper is created from a single casting, as compared to the conventional two piece construction, to ensure rigid flex-free operation and a consistent solid ‘feel’ at the lever. To ensure that the look of the calipers matches the ‘S’ model’s personality, each caliper is machine finished.

Professional racers know that one of the best ways to improve the handling and performance of a motorcycle is to reduce unsprung weight by upgrading to superior lightweight wheels. Even from a distance, the black Marchesini wheels with red pin-striping confirm the high performance of the Hypermotard ‘S’. Created from forged then machined alloy, both front and rear wheels are significantly lighter (2kg – 4.4lb less than the Hypermotard 1100) and create a lower moment of inertia and unsprung weight; resulting in improved handling and quicker steering. Mounted to the wheels are Z-rated Pirelli Diablo Corsa tyres. Designed to deliver racing performance on the road, they warm up quickly, give great feedback, are stable under severe braking and feature dual compound construction in the rear.

The ‘S’ model’s lightweight performance and extreme look is further enhanced by the liberal use of carbon fibre. The advanced composite is used for the fork protectors, timing belt covers, front fender rear section and tail side covers.
