2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796 Bike 1

Designed as a cheaper, less-intimidating superbike, the 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796 motorcycle has managed to surprise us with its features. Available two monthes ahead of its scheduled release date, this duck-billed bike features chassis upgrades that include redesigned top and bottom fork clamps and a new frame that eliminates forged elements. Losing those integrated brush guards/mirrors/indicators, the bike should be available in matte white, matte black and red. With a completely new Ducati 796 engine to output 81bhp and 56lb/ft of torque, the smaller, lighter, and even nimbler Hypermotard 796 makes for an overall classier ride. The retail price is $9,995 this December in USA. [via HellForLeatherMagazine]
