Ducati India is all set to launch the Hypermotard 950 tomorrow. We expect it to be priced at Rs 12.5 lakh (ex-showroom India). The Hypermotard 950 will replace the Hypermotard 939 and packs quite a few tricks up its sleeve to make it a better bike than its predecessor.

To begin with, the upcoming motorcycle comes with a retuned Testastretta L-twin liquid-cooled engine which generates 114.2PS of power and 96Nm of torque. This is thanks to updates like a bumped-up compression ratio, new ECU and new throttle body. Compared to the older engine, the new unit makes 4PS and 1Nm more. It works alongside a 6-speed hydraulically actuated clutch.

Electronic nannies include a three-level Bosch cornering ABS, traction control, three riding modes and wheelie control. The motorcycle employs a 45mm Marzochhi front fork and a Sachs rear monoshock - both fully adjustable. Brakes include twin 320mm front discs and a 245mm rear disc.

The 950 comes with subtle styling updates to demarcate it from the older bike. There’s a 4.3-inch TFT instrument cluster on offer too.
