REVIEW: Ducati Hyperstrada – new Duke tourer shines
Essentially the touring version of Hypermotard, the new Ducati Hyperstrada very much in the same vein as KTM 990 SMT and is definitely a great addition to the Ducati family. Join us as we describe our encounter with the new Hyperstrada, a machine that’s going to bring a whole new audience to Ducati. It has a new 34mm diameter tubular steel Trellis frame with 25.5° of rake and trail and offset of 104mm and 30mm respectively, providing a sure-footed, stable feel without compromising the Hypermotard’s original agility. The frame marries to a die-cast sub-frame and incorporates a Multistrada-like techno-polymer mid-section as part of the assembly.
