CARB documents uncovered this week reveal increases in displacement for the entire Ducati Hyper range and baby Panigale. Because more power.
Ah, the California Air Resources Board. Many a new bike have been tipped by brands filing documents in preparation for new motorcycles coming to California, and this week is no different.
The Ducati Hypermotard, Hypermotard SP, and Hyperstrada have been favorites of mine since they were updated in 2013 when the received the water cooled 821 cc motor they share with the Ducati Monster. While the old air cooled 1100 made a tad more power, this newest iteration was lighter, had better fueling, and was a fantastic bike.
