The Ducati Hypermotard is a toy for consenting adults; its 939 SP version is a toy for demanding adults. No more powerful but better equipped, more sporty, higher, better suspended, the machine does not deny its racing decoration. Hit the starter and the game begins.
The Hypermotard SP evolves at the same time as the standard model and thus receives the improvements of the twin increased to 937 cm3. A few more horses, a lot of torque, and to have fun, we find here a series of bonuses dedicated to a more precise control of the machine. In the first row, from Öhlins. The previous SP, in 821, was only entitled to the Swedish manufacturer’s branded shock absorber. By becoming 939, the Hypermotard SP gains a golden fork of 50 mm in diameter. Fully adjustable, it will allow more efficiency and feeling on muscular rides.
Braking also gains in feeling with a Brembo radial master cylinder, complete with an adjustable lever in 5 positions. Bosch ABS and equipment does not change compared to the standard HM: 320 mm discs, Brembo M4-32 radial and monobloc grippers, Bosch 9MP unit with 2 intervention levels + off.
With increased suspension travel (front: 185 mm, + 15 mm – rear: 175 mm, + 25 mm), the SP offers more ground clearance but also a higher seat. The saddle, here equipped with a coating with more grip, has a height of 890 mm. Truly worthy of a Supermot ‘. As an option, we can lower that by 20 mm.
Dynamically, the machine will become more lively with Marchesini forged aluminum rims, featuring the same design as those of the 1299 Panigale S, lighter, and shod with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires..
And also by his slimming diet. Three kilos are gone, mainly thanks to the rims but also by a small selection of small carbon parts, such as the front fender and the belt guards. Note the magnesium cylinder head covers.
A little more electronic fun. Like the entire Hypermotard family, the SP includes three driving modes in its engine management. They have been recalibrated here to make it more sporty.
RACE : Race Riding Mode delivers 113 hp of power with instant Ribe-by-Wire (RbW) response to throttle opening, minimal traction control system intervention (DTC) and efficiency level 1 ABS system applied only to the front and without rear lift control.
SPORT : the Sport Driving Mode delivers a power of 113 HP with a more progressive response of the RbW to the opening of the throttle, a intervention of medium intensity of the DTC system and level 2 of braking efficiency of the ABS system with reduced control of the lift.
WET : the Wet Driving Mode delivers a power of 75 HP with a progressive response of the RbW to the opening of the throttle, an intervention of the DTC system close to the maximum threshold and level 3 of braking efficiency of the ABS system with the maximum of stability during braking and lifting control.
Immediately identifiable with its red and white Corsican color and its promising suspensions, the 939 Hypermotard SP announces beautiful slices of adrenaline and formidable efficiency on winding roads, even more when the virolos tighten and come closer. However, the toy is expensive to pay for its services. The price is at the level of a previous generation hypersport; barely less than a 959 Panigale but just as much as the former CBR 1000 or GSX-R. Machines that will have trouble following the Hypermotard 939 SP on a mountain road..
