For those who long for the Ducati Multistrada or the Hypermotard but who find them beyond reach now have a smaller, more sensible alternative in Ducati's Hyperstrada. The Ducati Hyperstrada is a touring-focused motorcycle, which is equally suitable on and off the road.
The Ducati Multistrada uses an 821.1cc liquid-cooled Testastretta L-twin making 110 horsepower at 9,250rpm and 89Nm of torque at 7,750rpm, paired to a six-speed transmission. The Multistrada runs a set of Pirelli Scorpion Trial tires and also has a windscreen, a comfortable touring seat and a taller handlebar. The dry weight of the Ducati Multistrada is an impressive 181 kilograms.
Ducati's safety pack of three-level ABS, eight-level Ducati Traction Control and pre-set riding modes are standard as are the twin side 'hard luggage' boxes, two 12 volt outlets and satellite navigation. The Ducati Hyperstrada will be available from Ducati Thailand for 549,900 THB.
