Ducati has built and brought to market another extremely successful piece of engineering with the new Hypermotard SP.
Beautiful to look at and exhilarating to ride, the dramatically updated 2013 model of the Italian company's supermoto bike is fast and fierce, and equal parts demanding and rewarding.
It's basically a race bike, which means it's not a cozy mount for a cruise up the coast. The ready-for-the-track set-up means stiff suspension, an unforgiving seat, increased seat height, plenty of engine heat and a muffler growl that will wake the neighbors.
In other words, it's awesome. I enjoyed my first hour on this bike as much as I've enjoyed any ride this year.
