Ducati Hypermotard 950 RVE unveiled, launch in July 2020
Last year in May, Ducati showcased the Hypermotard 950 Concept at the the Concorso d'Eleganza - a stage normally set for exotic automobiles and collectors bringing their vintage best. However, this concept by Ducati made the manufacturer earn the first prize in the 'Concept Bikes: New Design and Prototypes by Manufacturers and Independents category. Ducati then launched the production version of the Hypermotard 950 in June. And now the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has unveiled the Hypermotard 950 RVE, without disclosing the price.
As seen in the images, Ducati has gone ahead and brought the Graffiti livery on this version, straight from the concept. And it does make for a striking difference compared to the standard motorcycle. In the official release, Ducati mentions employing highly skilled labour who use low thickness decals and adopt a particularly long and complex process to give the look and feel of an airbrushed bodywork. Also, the Marchesini forged-alloy wheels that are offered on the SP trim have been replaced by these red-black treated standard wheels.
Also, the Ducati Hypermotard 950 RVE is not just about show, as Ducati is offering Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) Up and Down EVO, which is essentially Ducati wizardry for quick shifter. The features list includes Bosch Cornering ABS with Slide by Brake function, Ducati Traction Control Evo (DTC EVO) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) EVO. Powering the Hypermotard 950 RVE is the twin-cylinder 937 cc Testastretta 11° engine that makes 114PS at 9,000rpm and generates 96Nm. However, if the Graffiti scheme is a bit too much, there is always the top of the line Hypermotard 950 SP with Ohlins suspension, Marchesini forged rims and Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) Up and Down EVO.
