The UK contingent have touched down in Sardinia, wired on espresso and bloated from airport pizza
I'm out in Sardinia for the launch of Ducati's Hypermotard 1100 EVO. I can't wait.
I'm knackered from the transfers, been up since 5am and haven't helped myself by necking an espresso at every opportunity. Now it's come-down time!
So Ducati have updated the Hypermotard 1100, and in the meantime they've launched a new Hypermotard 796. We're riding the Hypermotard EVO tomorrow at the Mores circuit.
Ducati have put a Hypermotard in the reception of our hotel (that's the pic above) and, visually, it doesn't look that different from the Hypermotard 1100S. The silhouette is very similar and the specification is too; a couple more horsepower, but the same amount of torque and the same wheelbase.
We've got a full technical presentation tomorrow before the track session and I'll be checking in with a first ride report. So check out the news section tomorrow for more info on the Hypermotard 1100 EVO and we'll also have the launch report of the Kawasaki Z1000 too.
