Video: Ducati Hypermotard new vs old

Published: 22 May 2013

Updated: 20 November 2014

Ducati's new 821cc Hypermotard replaces two old Hypermotards: the little 796 and its bigger brother, the 1100 Evo.

It has a similar-size engine to the small one, but more power than the big one, so what kind of buyer will be attracted to it?

To find out, we got two MCN road testers and two less-experienced riders on the staff to take them all for an extended spin on B-roads and a blast around a kart track.

We also find out how it compares to our favourite big supermoto: KTM's 990 SMR.
