First introduced at the end of last year at the EICMA 2018 exhibition, notable upgrades on the new Ducati Hypermotard include the 937cc Testastretta 11 engine, 6-axis inertia measurement, subframe The back and the overall design are also slightly tweaked.
Specifically, Hypermotard 950 2019 is equipped with sharper new fenders, along with upgraded headlights with LED daytime running strips.
The car’s radiator system is moved to the front a bit, the engine frame and the steel frame of the car also reveal more to create a healthy look. The sub-frame of the trellis is changed with a lighter weight, while creating space to “insert” the exhaust pipe just below the saddle.

It is known that IMU operates thanks to data obtained from acceleration sensors and gyroscope, which is responsible for continuously recording information about slope or rotation, thereby ordering other systems to adjust stars.
For increased balance of the vehicle. Hypermotard 950 also has 3 driving modes, including Sport (sports), Touring (road travel) and Urban (city). The new fox eye design helps reduce the width of the saddle but the height remains unchanged.
