The Satin White color is matched with the red frame and wheels which boost its design and characteristics.
2018 Ducati Hypermotard 939 and its SP version are set up as tourer that’s particularly suited for everyday use. The motorbike was first presented as a concept bike at the Milan Show years back in 2005, and the Hypermotrad prototype was an immediate success.

As far as electronics are concerned, the newly revealed Hypermotard 939 comes standard with the Ducati Safety Pack which offers three level ABS, eight level Ducati traction control and three ride modes. Each riding modes carries different electronic settings which gives the super sporty bike three definite personalities.
