Hypermotard 939 SP

Hyper Adrenaline

Thrilling performance pushed to the edge. Set-up to hit the road as if it were a track. Fully adjustable Öhlins suspension and Ducati Safety Pack including ABS and Traction Control. Lightweight and agile thanks to the forged Marchesini wheels. The Hypermotard 939 SP brings its decidedly sporting temperament to the forefront, enhanced by an exclusive livery. Hypermotard 939 SP: a dose of pure adrenaline.

Design

The new Hypermotard 939 is a stunning looking bike that is also a joy to ride.
The original dirtbike-inspired look is even more daring thanks to high ground clearance, a high and tapered tail, and narrow sides. These are the design elements that characterise the Hypermotard and which have been created for a motorbike that can be used for urban commuting, touring or for a thrilling day-out on the track.

In its hand protectors, more typically fitted to off-road models, the new Hypermotard 939 integrates LED turn signals in order to blend in perfectly with the model’s clean design and the need to use it in the city. The attention paid to the flow of the lines has allowed an essential and minimalist image of this family, despite the bikes’ complex water-cooled engine and thoroughly modern technology.

The new Hypermotard 939 family therefore stands out because of its proportions, ergonomics and practicality, besides being equipped with the latest Ducati technology. While the Hypermotard 939 and Hypermotard 939 SP versions faithfully maintain an essential Supermotard look, the Hyperstrada 939 seems less extreme and has specific features aimed at touring.

Hypermotard 939 SP

The Hypermotard 939 SP, the most extreme model in the family, echoes all the technical features of the Hypermotard 939 but takes them to the next level to satisfy the most proficient and demanding riders who want to ride at peak performance. This is possible in complete safety as the Hypermotard 939 SP is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) including ABS and DTC as standard. The SP model, in pure racing style, is equipped with dedicated Riding Modes as well as full Öhlins suspension, to guarantee a real Supermotard set-up. With 210 mm ground clearance and a thrilling lean angle that can reach 47.5°, the “meanest” model in the Hypermotard 939 family guarantees sheer enjoyment.

Hyper story

When the prototype Hypermotard was first shown at the 2005 Milan show it represented the creation of a new sector, one that bridged the gap between refined sportsbikes and minimalist supermotards. But some people at Ducati had reservations about the initial Hypermotard concept and were unsure if people were ready for such a motorcycle.

Despite these reservations, the project continued, driven by the belief in the upright and in-control riding position of a dirtbike, but without the harsh characteristics of its single cylinder engine. These confident few designed a bike that combined the agility and lightweight precision of a supermotard with the refined power and characteristics of a charismatic L-Twin sportbike.

The launch of the Hypermotard in 2007 created a new crossover category: pure fun reinvented in a motorcycle that can be used every day.

2013 marked a new milestone in this development: Ducati presented a new and exciting generation of Hypermotards, which drew on elements from the original concept that made the bike unique and such a success: innovation, design, but above all fun in the extreme. And in 2016 the new Hypermotard 939 evolves the concept even further, with its powerful new engine gracing the full range of 3 incredible models: the thrilling Hypermotard 939, the track-oriented Hypermotard SP, and the touring-capable Hyperstrada 939.

New Testastretta 11°

The new Hypermotard 939 family utilizes a 4-valve engine with a water-cooled cylinder, featuring a bore x stroke of 94 mm x 67.5 mm designed to achieve a perfect balance between usability and performance: this is the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine which provides maximum power of 113 hp @ 9,000 rpm and torque of 97.9 Nm @ 7,500 rpm.*

This new engine uses technical solutions which directly reflect Ducati’s engineering know-how and have led to the creation of an extremely fluid and stable engine: the 11° valve overlap confirms the excellent results obtained in the Multistrada 1200 family and optimizes the exhaust and intake stages with consequent steady operation at medium and low speeds. Targeted fuel injectors aim the jet of fuel directly at the hotter rear end of the intake valve so that all fuel is atomised; a secondary air system similar to that of the 1299 Panigale enables the engine’s operation to be optimised thanks to the controlled flow of oxygen which reduces cyclical combustion dispersion, thus effectively eliminating unburnt fuel.

Ultimately, Ducati has managed to obtain a new engine that is extremely enjoyable, performs excellently and which can significantly limit emissions of unburnt fuel.

Homologated power data, as quoted in the Bike Registration Document, are measured using an engine dynamometer according to the homologation regulation. The two power values may differ because of the different measurement equipments.

Power Modes

113 hp* with sporting “HIGH” delivery

113 hp* with progressive “MEDIUM” delivery

75 hp* with progressive “LOW” delivery

The structural features of the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine, together with the use of the Ride-by-Wire system which controls the opening of the throttle body butterflies on the basis of the input received, are the starting point in obtaining the Modes de Conduite for the new Hypermotard 939 models.

Each Riding Mode has a preset engine mapping, which can be adjusted and customised to suit rider needs.

The two power values may differ because of the different measurement equipments.

Exhaust system

The 2-1 exhaust system features 50 mm exhaust headers and valves which flow into a new single silencer using high absorption technology and finished in black with stainless steel endcaps. The system includes a catalytic converter and two lambda sensors, and is completely compliant with Euro 4 regulations.

Slipper clutch

The new engine is equipped with an oil bath clutch with ‘slipper’ functionality. Its design uses a progressive self-servo system and plates with a high wear coefficient, increasing the torque available with all other factors being constant, and reducing clutch spring loading and lever effort. It is cable actuated, which has proven to be the best solution for the application in terms of build simplicity. The slipper function intervenes when the drive force is reversed, and reduces the pressure on the clutch discs to prevent wheel hop and maintain the vehicle’s stability during aggressive downshifts.

Service intervals of 30.000km

Thanks to the constant investment by Ducati in quality and reliability, the new 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine keeps excellent maintenance intervals: valve adjustment is now scheduled for every 30.000 km which is a great advantage for Ducati customers.

New Trellis frame

The Hypermotard 939 family of bikes is equipped with a tubular steel Trellis frame with 34 mm main section tubes, 25.5° rake, 104 mm trail and 30 mm offset, dimensions which allow steady and safe control without compromising the agility typical of this motorbike. The frame connects into the seat rail and, as in the Multistrada 1200, includes an intermediate section in engineering polymer. A wide 70° steering angle allows great handling, while a wheel base starting at 1,485 mm maximises stability at high speeds. 

Öhlins rear shock

The rear suspension on the Hypermotard 939 SP performs excellently thanks to the fully adjustable Öhlins rear shock with an integrated gas reservoir, which enables a rear wheel travel of 175 mm.

Sporting ergonomic

With its 890 mm high seat (+ 20 mm compared to the new Hypermotard) and the special design guaranteeing maximum adherence, with the variable-section aluminium handlebar which guarantees total control of the motorbike, the new Hypermotard 939 SP enables a sporting set-up to obtain race-level performance and enjoyment.

Bosch Brembo braking system

The front braking system features a pair of Brembo M4.32 monobloc 4-piston radial callipers, which are activated by the brake master cylinder with its 4-position adjustable lever on the Hypermotard 939 and Hyperstrada 939 and by the radial brake master cylinder with an adjustable 5-position lever on the 939 SP model. The front discs are 320 mm, while on the rear there is a single 245 mm disc with a single Brembo calliper.
All the new Hypermotard 939s are also equipped with a multilevel Bosch 9MP ABS as standard that make braking safe and effective in any road conditions.

This component ensures optimum braking performance in the sector, a typical feature of every Ducati.

Single-sided swingarm

The rear suspension of the new Hypermotard 939 family relies on the exclusive die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm, which was specially designed to provide strength and guarantee excellent control of the rear axle. This elegant mechanical solution helps emphasise the bold and sporty character of the new models.

Öhlins front fork

The Hypermotard 939 SP uses a 48mm diameter fully adjustable Öhlins USD fork, offering the very best in front-end feeling and bump absorption during even the most aggressive sport or track riding. Preload, rebound, and compression can all be fully tailored to the rider’s desire, giving the 939 SP an unparalleled ride.

Ducati Safety Pack (DSP)

The whole range of the new Hypermotard family is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which highlights the extent to which Ducati is focused on the issue of road safety. Designed to maximise the control of the bike and active safety while riding, the DSP includes the Brembo braking system with Bosch ABS in its latest 9MP version, and 8-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC). 

Racing components

The clearly sports-inspired components which complete the SP version are the front mudguard and cam belt covers in carbon fibre, the front radial master brake cylinder with a 5-position adjustable lever, and the dedicated seat specially designed for maximum grip. These extraordinary specifications help guarantee a dry weight of just 178 kg, 3 kg lighter than the standard Hypermotard 939.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

An integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), the Ducati Traction Control system, which is adjustable over 8 levels (3 of which are integrated into the Riding Modes), processes the input from the wheel speed sensors to control rear wheel slip, significantly improving performance and active safety.

At the first stage, if skidding is detected, the system intervenes “softly” by delaying ignition resulting in up to a 60% reduction in torque. If this initial intervention fails to control the skid, the Ducati Traction Control software continues to delay ignition and also cuts off the fuel injection to further reduce torque, until optimal rear-wheel grip is re-established.

Each stage of the DTC, preset in the Riding Modes, can be tailored by the user and saved in the set-up menu.

Instruments

The compact instruments of the Hypermotard 939 family include warning lights in the upper part of the dashboard for signals relating to neutral, indicators, high beam, rev limit, oil pressure and fuel reserve, while the lower section includes an LCD display with a DOT-matrix readout to view all the other data.

The display provides data on speed, rpm, the engaged gear, mileage, trip 1 and trip 2, engine coolant temperature, ambient temperature and the time. In addition, it shows current fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, average speed and journey time. The DOT-matrix readout permanently shows the chosen Riding Mode and the corresponding ABS and DTC levels set; it is possible to choose from 3 Riding Modes very easily whether stationary or on the move using the indicator button.

Specific Riding modes for the "SP"

The innate sporting nature of the SP version of the new Hypermotard 939 family is highlighted by the use of the same 3 Riding Modes as the 1299 Panigale, which are programmed to instantly change the engine torque and the intervention levels of the ABS and Ducati Traction Control even while riding:
RACE: The Race Riding Mode provides 113 hp with a direct response from the RbW on acceleration, minimum intervention from the DTC system and level 1 efficiency from the ABS which is applied only to the front wheel and without rear wheel lift control.

SPORT: The Sport Riding Mode provides 113 hp with a more progressive response from the RbW on acceleration, average level intervention from the DTC system and level 2 high braking efficiency from the ABS with reduced control over lift.

WET: The Wet Riding Mode provides 75 hp with gradual response from the RbW on acceleration, intervention from the DTC system close to the maximum threshold and level 3 braking efficiency from the ABS with maximum stability on braking and control over lift.

Controls

The integral Ride-by-Wire system on the new Hypermotard 939 family includes a compact electronic throttle control, which combines perfectly with the minimalist design of the buttons. The Hypermotard 939 uses an innovative button featuring an exclusive ‘safety’ function protecting the starter switch when the engine off button is pressed. The light-action clutch has traditional cable control, and the rear brake lever can be adjusted in 4 positions (5 positions for the SP model with a radial brake master cylinder). The die-cast aluminium foot pegs are painted black, have integrated heel guards, and support the brake and gear levers made from forged aluminium.

Bosch 9MP ABS with sport calibrations

The new Hypermotard 939 family is equipped with Bosch 9MP ABS, an integral part of the Ducati Safety Pack. This unrivalled combination of safety and braking power provides shorter stopping distances and greater stability under braking. The system is perfectly integrated into the Riding Modes of the SP version and offers a specific setting for sports use.

Level 1, which is integrated into Race Riding Mode, enables ABS intervention only on the front which is ideal for track driving. Level 2, which is integrated into Sport Riding Mode, guarantees high braking performance with reduced anti lift-up control for sports use on the road. Level 3, which is integrated into Wet Riding Mode,offers excellent stability on braking and maximum control of rear lift.

Riders who wish to try out unassisted braking performance can disable the ABS from the instrument panel menu. The ABS will remain disabled at the next key-on and this setting can be stored for each Riding Mode.

Headlights and Indicators

The headlight is extremely light and compact and uses a single “blue-vision” filament lamp for dipped and full-beam functions, while the directional indicators employ LEDs. The rear light employs a specially designed strip of LEDs enhanced by a high-diffusion lens shaped into the sleek lines of the tailpiece. It acts both as a rear light and as a brake light. The front directional indicators are harmoniously integrated into the handguards maintaining the sleek lines of the Hypermotard as a result. On the new Hypermotard models there is also a 4-way hazard light function which can be activated by holding the left indicator button down for four seconds.

Marchesini forged wheels

The Hypermotard 939 SP has 3-spoke wheels in forged aluminium manufactured by Marchesini, with the same sporting design as those of the 1299 Panigale S. This enables a reduction in unsprung weight and emphasises the racing heritage of the SP version.

Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP

Based on the technology and experience acquired by Pirelli in racing, the front 120/70 x 17″ and rear 180/55 x 17″ Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres fitted to the Hypermotard 939 SP ensure high performance on the track and excellent road handling. The tyres are also used on the 1299 Panigale and have a structure designed to maximise the contact area so as to optimise the bike’s power to the ground, and they employ a double compound which, by facilitating the rapid heating of the rubber, ensures constant grip for precise trajectories in straight lines and around curves.
