2011 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP

More Hyper than ever

The 1100EVO SP takes the Hypermotard concept to a new level of extreme. Higher ground clearance, higher spec suspension, higher bars and less weight makes the SP track-ready for action.

The Hypermotard 1100EVO SP takes the whole Hypermotard concept to a new level of extreme. Higher ground clearance, higher spec suspension, higher bars and even less weight makes the 1100EVO SP trackready for action.

When Ducati first launched the Hypermotard project they knew that there would be extreme riders out there who wanted more – they just didn’t realise there would be so many! With a racing heritage built on direct rider feed-back and a Hypermotard category in the Italian Ducati Desmo Challenge series, Ducati’s reputation for listening to owners to improve their motorcycles has become legendary and the Hypermotard 1100EVO SP is no exception.

Extreme riders all wanted the same thing from the Hypermotard: More power, more ground clearance, more control in extreme situations, more detail and less weight. With the Hypermotard 1100EVO SP, the engineers have ticked all the boxes.

The 1100EVO SP takes the whole Hypermotard concept to a new level of extreme. Higher ground clearance, higher spec suspension, higher bars and even less weight makes the SP track-ready for action and impressive enough to wear the Ducati Corse logo.

When we first launched the Hypermotard project we knew that there would be extreme riders out there who wanted more – we just didn’t realise there would be so many! With a racing heritage built on direct rider feed-back, and two years of Hypermotard category in our Italian-based Ducati Desmo Challenge series, we’ve built a reputation for listening to owners and the new SP spec is the result.

Extreme riders all wanted the same thing from the Hypermotard: More power, more ground clearance, more control in extreme situations, more detail and less weight. Now, our engineers have ticked all the boxes with a model intended to perform on the track as well as the street.

 

SP suspension

Longer, black-bodied, fully adjustable 50mm Marzocchi forks have 30mm (1.2in) more travel and increase the SP’s ground clearance by 30mm (1.2in), extending the SP’s extreme cornering performance and providing a more track-oriented set-up. Coated with a durable low friction, DLC (diamond-like carbon) black coating, the sliders enable the Hypermotard ‘SP’ to respond effortlessly to every minute variation in the tarmac, improving on its already impressive road holding. The advanced ‘SP’ suspension is further enhanced with an Öhlins remote reservoir rear shock, renowned in racing as the ultimate performance choice. This incredible shock is fully adjustable for compression and rebound damping as well as spring preload, ensuring that the ‘SP’ is readily adaptable to every riding style and road or track it challenges.

SP brakes

With a bike as extreme as the Hypermotard 1100EVO SP, superior stopping power is fundamental, so worldclass braking performance is assured by using the same Brembo Monobloc callipers as on Ducati’s top Superbikes. Machined from a single piece of alloy, the callipers achieve a higher rigidity and resistance to distortion during extreme braking, which not only delivers incredible braking power, but also provides an enhanced and precise ‘feel’ at the brake lever. The twin Monobloc callipers, each with four 34mm pistons gripping 305mm discs, guarantee spectacular braking performance.

SP lightweight wheels by Marchesini

Extreme riders know that one of the best ways to improve the handling and performance of a motorcycle is to reduce its unsprung weight by upgrading to superior lightweight wheels. Even from a distance, the 5- spoke black Marchesini wheels with red pin-striping confirm the high performance of the Hypermotard 1100EVO SP. Created from forged then machined alloy, both front and rear wheels are significantly lighter and create a lower moment of inertia and unsprung weight, resulting in improved acceleration and braking as well as quicker steering. Mounted to the lightweight wheels are Z-rated Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres. Designed to deliver racing performance on the road, they give great feedback, are stable under severe braking and feature a sure-footed ‘feel’ when braking or accelerating is applied at considerable lean angles.

SP extras

The Hypermotard 1100EVO SP has serrated footpegs for increased boot grip during extreme conditions and a Teflon slider under each peg for protection in extreme lean angles. Ducati include a rubber insert with the bike for riders who prefer to cover the serration for increased comfort.

To enhance control, the tapered alloy handlebars have a 20mm longer bar-riser that effectively changes the riding positioning to enable greater leverage under extreme riding conditions. The risers are finished in black along with the new Marzocchi forks, upper and lower fork clamps, footpeg carriers and pedals, exhaust guard, rear subframe and rear sprocket carrier.

A carbon fibre rear hugger is fitted as standard equipment, enhancing the SP’s already extreme image and also providing protection for the Öhlins rear suspension unit. The advanced composite is also used for the fork protectors, timing belt covers, front fender rear section and tail side covers.

SP colours

The Hypermotard 1100EVO SP is boldly finished in a choice of red-themed or white-themed Ducati Corse livery to underline its competition intention.

The white-themed livery has a white tank with thin red stripe and red Ducati graphic, contrasted with a
black knee-panel area. The headlight fairing and beak section are also white with a wide red stripe along the centre of the beak and thin black striping around the fairing section. The tailpiece is white with a wide red stripe along its centre.

Both colour schemes have red Trellis frames with black wheels and the Ducati Corse logo proudly displayed on the Hypermotard’s beak section.

 

Hyper data

Supplied as standard equipment on the 1100EVO SP, 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, enabling it to display gear selection as an additional channel of information. At the end of a ride or track session, up to 4mb of data can be downloaded ready to compare, analyse and get an inside view of the performance of both the rider and the Hypermotard.

 

 

 

The easiest way to go Hyper

Just as aggressively striking as the 1100, the Hypermotard 1100 EVO features a lower seat height and a smooth and flexible engine to make it the perfect urban assault vehicle. Whether it’s working the daily commute or attacking the open roads, the 796 rides the common ground between manners and madness by mixing Ducati’s unrivalled twin-cylinder power and sportbike heredity with the lightweight and minimalist supermotard concept.

The Desmodue 1100 Evoluzione engine

The lightweight, L-Twin stands at the pinnacle of more than three decades of Desmo air-cooled
development and its torquey power delivery has excited riders worldwide. The Evoluzione version is
positively awesome and makes it the perfect engine to give its name to the Hypermotard 1100EVO.
The 1100cc Desmodue Evoluzione power unit uses a bore and stroke of 98 x 71.5mm, and its long list of refinements boosted its power to 95hp (69.9kW) @ 7500rpm with 76lb-ft (10.5kgm) of torque @ 5750rpm giving it outstanding power delivery, from grunting low rpms to the singing howl at redline.

The 1100’s crankcases are vacuum cast using the same Vacural® technology employed for the lightweight Superbike engines, a process that achieves significant weight saving and ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength.

But the crankcases were just the starting point of the evolution. Apart from the magnesium alternator
cover, the 1100 has a lighter crankshaft assembly by using an 848-style Superbike flywheel and the search for further weight reduction even went as far as using lightweight rare-earth magnets for the generator assembly. The result reduced the original 1100 power unit’s weight by a staggering 5.2kg (11.5lb) and contributed towards making the Hypermotard 1100EVO even more agile.

Power gains have come not only from the new lightweight crankshaft assembly, but also from an evolution of the top-end of the Desmodue power unit. The cylinder head, not only improves lubrication and cooling performance, but also uses a redesigned inlet port shape for optimum flow and a modified combustion chamber shape for improved burn efficiency. This improved efficiency is the result of a higher compression ratio and the change to a single spark per cylinder ignition managed by high-speed Siemens electronics.

Ensuring a sufficient feed to the higher compression set-up is a high-flow airbox intake duct and higher-lift valves for maximum volumetric efficiency.

The incredible valve performances of the Desmodue engine are only possible because of Ducati’s unique Desmodromic system, where valve closure is activated mechanically. At high rpm it would be almost impossible for the valve to follow the steep closure profile of the cam lobe if it were relying upon a normal valve spring. With the Desmo system, the valve is closed mechanically with the same accuracy as it is opened, enabling steep cam profiles and radical cam timings. This system is used on every single Ducati power unit including their world-beating Superbike and Desmosedici MotoGP engines.

In keeping with its extreme character, Ducati continue to use the ‘dry’ racing-style clutch for the
Hypermotard 1100, the popular preference of thousands of Ducatisti the world over. The clutch and
alternator covers are finished in carbon grey for the 1100EVO and in gold for the 1100EVO SP.

An impressively efficient oil cooler protects the increased power output of the Hypermotard 1100EVO, whether ridden on the open roads or through stop-start urban traffic. Conforming to Euro3 regulations, the 2-1-2 exhaust system is monitored by twin lambda probes to ensure the most efficient fuel injection under all conditions. The exhaust terminates with Ducati-famous twin under-seat mufflers.

Having more experience with twin-cylinder high performance engines than any other manufacturer, the aircooled L-Twin remains central to Ducati’s philosophy of motorcycling. This experience – plus constant investment in quality by design, advanced materials and engineering techniques – has enabled 7,500 miles (12,000 kilometres) between service intervals, making Ducati ownership even more enjoyable than ever.

CHASSIS

Trellis frame

An improved frame layout eliminates almost all of the forged elements used on previous Hypermotards, replacing them with precision machined components. The lightened frame retains its torsional strength to become even more agile and easier to handle than before. Through decades of racing and development, Ducati has proven that innovative chassis engineering and evolutionary frame advancements win races. The tubular Trellis frame, used on every Ducati motorcycle, is a signature design element. This unique Ducati frame is light, rigid and beautiful thanks to its ingenious Trellis design and use of high quality ALS 450 tubing. Each tube is mitred and micro-fusion welded in a complex triangulated pattern and our incredibly strong L-Twin engine cases are functional ‘stressed members’ of the chassis.



Single-sided swingarm

The rear suspension of the Hypermotard uses Ducati’s signature Hypermotard single-sided swingarm. The robust solution contributes considerable engineering style and, on this type of motorcycle, is a feature unique to Ducati.



Long Travel Marzocchi forks

Brand new longer, black-bodied, fully adjustable 50mm Marzocchi forks have 30mm (1.2in) more travel and increase the SP’s ground clearance by 35mm (1.38in), extending the SP’s extreme cornering performance and providing a more track-oriented set-up. Coated with a durable low friction, DLC (diamond-like carbon) black coating, the sliders enable the Hypermotard ‘SP’ to respond effortlessly to every minute variation in the tarmac, improving on its already impressive road holding.



Marchesini 5-spoke wheels

One of the best ways to improve the handling and performance of a motorcycle is to reduce its unsprung weight by upgrading to superior lightweight wheels. Even from a distance, the 5-spoke black Marchesini wheels with red pin-striping confirm the high performance of the Hypermotard 1100EVO SP. Created from forged then machined alloy, both front and rear wheels are significantly lighter and create a lower moment of inertia and unsprung weight, resulting in improved acceleration and braking as well as quicker steering.

Minimalist switchgear

The slim-line switch bodies house easy-to-use switches and buttons and feature a unique weapons-like ‘trigger catch’ that slides down to cover the starter button when the kill-switch is activated.



Lighting

The headlamp uses a highly compact lighting shape which blends with the single piece nose fairing and front fender moulding, while the rear light employs a specially designed strip of LEDs enhanced by a high diffusion lens shaped into the sleek lines of the tailpiece. The same LEDs are intensified under braking. The front directional indicators also employ the latest in LED technology for illumination, and are ingeniously integrated into the handguards which support the foldable rear view mirrors. The high intensity LED rear light assembly is moulded into a unique tailpiece positioned high behind the seat.



Innovative mirrors

The challenge of maintaining a clean, racing look around the handlebar area, motivated the design of the folding mirror concept which is based on the handguards typically found on off-road bikes. Flipped out for high visibility street mode and easily folded in for a quick change to ‘Hypermode’, the mirror handguard assemblies also integrate the LED directional indicators for an even cleaner front-end.



Compact instruments

The white back-lit display provides an extensive amount of data including speed, revs, time, oil temperature, battery voltage, A & B trips, fuel reserve trip and scheduled maintenance, while the warning lights illuminate for neutral, turn signals, high-beam, rev-limit, oil pressure and fuel reserve. In addition, it can list recorded lap times by using the high-beam flash button as a stopwatch.

2011 Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO Features and Benefits

More Hyper than ever

The Hypermotard family moves into 2011 with the highly successful and accessible Hypermotard 796, the Hypermotard 1100EVO and the extreme, track-ready Hypermotard 1100EVO SP.

The powerful evolution models, in addition to the lightweight 796, represent Ducati’s continued excitement in the Hypermotard concept and their commitment to the family’s future development. Many features of the latest models were in response to requests from Ducatisti worldwide and represent the factory’s ongoing ability to respond to direct owner feedback.

The Hypermotard prototype was an instant success when first shown in Milan at the end of 2005 and soon became a top seller when its production started in 2007. Since then, its unique design has excited riders around the world and praise for this thrilling and versatile bike has never stopped – and neither has its evolution. Today, the range remains as Hyper as ever.

So what’s the hype?

The original Hypermotard was built to thrill, with its dirtbike stance, empowering, asphalt-attacking riding position and enough torque on tap to elicit a smile with each twist of the throttle. But what could really be changed to make it better? Ducati applied their usual engineering process of evolution to an already successful model by improving it in the two most effective ways possible: Less weight and more power.


Lightweight Trellis frame

The quick and precise handling that the Hypermotard provides is down to the construction and geometry of its famous Trellis frame. Its ability to handle the abundant torque from the L-Twin engine and its rigidity under powerful Brembo braking are just a few reasons why Ducati’s chassis department would never want to change it. But it could be made lighter. They realised that almost all of the heavy forged sections of the construction could be completely removed without reducing its strength or its performance, so they applied it to the entire family.


Light and powerful engines

While the chassis department were busy reducing the weight of the frame, the engine department went
back to the drawing board for the 796 and started with a clean sheet of paper. Their complete redesign of the crankcases rewarded them with an incredible saving of 1.2kg (2.64lb) compared to the original 696 castings, and the new 796 crankshaft with 848-style flywheel further reduced the overall engine weight to an impressive 1.9kg (4.2lb) savings over the original 696 power unit. With 81hp (59.6kW) of smooth and flexible power, the 796 becomes a very credible package.

The 1100 air-cooled Desmodue Evoluzione engine truly is an ‘evolution’ – both in power and weight – and is responsible for the model name extension 1100 EVO. Engineers used the same Vacural® technology employed for the lightweight Superbike engines when they vacuum die-cast the Hypermotard 1100 crankcases, a process that achieves a significant weight saving and ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength. This process – combined with the lightweight crankshaft assembly that uses an 848-style flywheel and use of lighter rare-earth magnets in the alternator – reduced the 1100 power unit’s weight by a staggering 5.2kg (11.5lb). Couple those savings with a boost to 95hp (69.9kW) and it becomes clear why there’s all the hype.

Compact and efficient, the Desmodue engine’s hyper-lightweight and narrow L-Twin layout, no wider than a single cylinder, ensures that all Hypermotards remain lean and agile. The air-cooled design eliminates the need for water radiators, hoses, reservoirs and pumps, keeping the motorcycle’s weight down to a minimum and its lines clean and race-like.


Latest controls and instrumentation

The entire Hypermotard family uses the electronic advances made in the compact and user-friendly
switchgear and instrumentation first created for the Streetfighter.

The slim-line switch bodies house easy-to-use switches and buttons, and feature a unique weapons-like ‘trigger catch’ that slides down to cover the starter button when the kill-switch is activated. Their minimalist design fits perfectly in the clean and essential lines of the Hypermotard’s sporting image.

Looking clean and purposeful, the display provides an extensive amount of data including speed, revs, time, oil temperature, battery voltage, A & B trips, fuel reserve trip and scheduled maintenance, while the warning lights illuminate for neutral, turn signals, high-beam, rev-limit, oil pressure and fuel reserve.

In addition, it can list recorded lap times by using the high-beam flash button as a stopwatch. Both the 1100EVO and 1100EVO SP use a white back-lighting while the 796 uses an orange back-lighting.
The instrument display also doubles as a control panel for the activation of the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA) system, which is available as an accessory from Ducati Performance for the ‘system-ready’ Hypermotard 796 and 1100EVO and supplied as standard equipment on the 1100EVO SP. The DDA-intended USB connection port under all of the Hypermotard seats doubles as a charging point for a handy battery charger, which is available as an accessory from Ducati Performance.


Hyper mirrors

Ducati pushed motorcycle design limits to find an innovative solution for the original Hypermotard mirrors and these are now used throughout the family. The challenge of maintaining a clean, racing look around the handlebar area motivated the design of the folding mirror concept which is based on the handguards typically found on off-road bikes. Flipped out for high visibility street mode and easily folded in for a quick change to ‘Hypermode’, the mirror handguard assemblies also integrate the LED directional indicators for an even cleaner front-end.


Lighting and indicators

The headlamp uses a highly compact lighting shape which blends with the single piece nose fairing and
front fender moulding, while the rear light employs a specially designed strip of LEDs enhanced by a high diffusion lens shaped into the sleek lines of the tailpiece. The same LEDs are intensified under braking. The front directional indicators also employ the latest in LED technology for illumination, and are ingeniously integrated into the handguards which support the foldable rear view mirrors.


Tailpiece

The high intensity LED rear light assembly is moulded into a unique tailpiece positioned high behind the
seat. The supporting structure has been designed so that the under tray of the tailpiece is formed perfectly to offer a sturdy pair of pillion grab-handles. This ingenious solution not only helps to merge the rear light into the Hypermotard styling but also provides a safe grip for the passenger.


Footpegs

Rider footpegs on all of the Hypermotard models have removable rubber inserts to expose the serrated metal edge and increase boot grip on the peg during extreme riding. The 1100EVO and 1100EVO SP provide a further minimalist and no-compromise feature by having removable passenger footpegs. This attention to detail enables a clean ‘monoposto’ look when on the track, while allowing a fast and easy change to ‘biposto’ for the street.



 

The Hypermotard Story
When the prototype Hypermotard was first shown at the Milan show it represented the creation of a new segment, one that bridged the gap between refined sportbikes and minimalist supermotards. But some at Ducati had reservations about the initial Hypermotard concept and were unsure whether or not the market was ready for such a motorcycle.

Despite those reservations, the project continued to be developed, driven by the belief in the upright and incontrol riding position of a dirtbike, but not the harsh characteristics of its single cylinder engine. These confident few liked the feel of a skinny, taut and agile chassis, but not the fact that its original off-road design made it a compromise on the street. They set about creating a bike that combined the agility and lightweight precision of a supermotard, with the refined power characteristics of a charismatic L-Twin Ducati sportbike. They were designing the future.

As each day went past, more and more people in the factory got to hear about the completed bike and those who had the chance to catch sight of it all responded in the same way: “Wow! We’re going to produce it, right?” There was one way to gauge market response: show it at the 2005 Milan show as a prototype and conduct an online survey.

Ducati presented the prototype Hypermotard as its centrepiece that year and their confidence was
rewarded with a global ‘yes!’ from the public, the ‘Best of Show’ award, and demands from riders all over the world to produce it immediately. In fact, a staggering 15,000 people completed the Ducati.com survey, with more than 50% asking for the Hypermotard to be built exactly as shown at the show. But Ducati were serious when they asked the public for their feed-back and took time to sift through thousands of additional suggestions and requests, such as twin front brake discs instead of the prototype’s single, and integrated many of them into the final production design.

The innovative Hypermotard spawned a new and exciting ‘cross-over’ category that had reinvented pure riding pleasure with a practical and versatile motorcycle that could be used every day. Riders hungry for excitement immediately understood the concept and have been enjoying it ever since.

With an impressive exhibition presence of approximately 400m2, stand D-040 in hall 8 of Cologne’s INTERMOT 2010 show now plays host to exciting new arrivals in the Superbike family in addition to new colours and updates for both the Streetfighter and Monster range. With new models, accessories and apparel, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer from Bologna is showing a wide range of new 2011 products at this major international show.

“We decided to consolidate our presence here in Cologne because we believe in the importance of this exhibition event, which opens the European motor show season,” stated Gabriele Del Torchio, President of Ducati Motor Holding, during the opening press conference. “Our presence at the show is proof of our commitment to customers in Germany and northern Europe, and underlines our aim to expand in Germany, which is the second most important market in Europe for Ducati. For this reason we decided to preview here some of the new products scheduled for 2011, such as the new additions to the Superbike family with the 848EVO and 1198 SP, and new liveries for the Monster and Streetfighter models.”

Gabriele Del Torchio also commented on the results of the first eight months of 2010: “Despite a shrinking global motorcycle market, we have used Ducati’s product policy and the quality of its distribution network to improve both our market share, now at 8.5%, and also to increase our sales by 5% compared to this period 2009.”

A huge attendance is expected at the German show and visitors to the Ducati stand are sure to admire the innovative and ground-breaking Multistrada 1200, which made an immediate impact on the market upon debut in March 2010. The current model will not undergo any changes for 2011, confirming its proven design and high standard of quality. INTERMOT is also the first European event to celebrate the Multistrada’s victory at the “Pike’s Peak International Hillclimb”, the famous annual race held high in the Colorado mountains, where riders have to quickly adapt to changing road surfaces. The Multistrada on which American, Greg Tracy, took victory has been specially flown in to Cologne from the US so that fans can share in this major celebration and see further proof of the Multistrada 1200’s incredible versatility.

Important additions to the Ducati Superbike family are on show in an exclusive preview of the 2011 range, including the new 848EVO which boasts 140hp and is equipped with Brembo Monobloc callipers and steering damper. The performance-enhanced model celebrates the INTERMOT show by revealing a stunning new “arctic white” livery with sporty red wheels and red frame.

The standard 1198 is also ready to satisfy an ever more demanding market, with the addition of Ducati Traction Control (DTC), the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA) and the brand new Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) fitted as standard equipment on all versions. For 2011, the improved 1198 is joined by the exciting new 1198 SP, which enhances the previous ‘S’ version by rolling out equipped with DTC, DQS, DDA, Ohlins TTX rear suspension, slipper clutch and aluminium fuel tank in addition to the usual Ohlins front suspension, forged Marchesini wheels and lightweight carbon fibre components.

The 2011 Streetfighter S looks impressive in its new colour schemes of red with red frame or diamond black with racing black frame, both with black wheels. A black radiator cover on all versions completes the Streetfighter’s aesthetic updates.

Enhanced comfort and safety, in addition to new colour schemes, headline the main updates to Ducati’s naked icon, the Monster. The entry level 696 gets new 43mm Marzocchi forks and enhanced ergonomics, including 20mm higher handlebars and a new rear sub-frame designed to accept the user-friendly passenger grab-rail kit available as a Ducati Performance accessory. The Monster 696 presents the two new colour schemes of “dark stealth” and “stone white”, perfectly complementing the new matte chrome handlebar finish. The Monster 796, which was launched in April 2010 as an early entry model year 2011, also adopts Marzocchi front suspension and continues its incredible success. Along with the Monster 1100, the 696 and 796 complete the 2011 range, confirming the family’s status as a style and design icon, backed-up by 17 years of Ducati Monster heritage.

INTERMOT will be open to the public until Sunday, 10 October.
