    Funny they r using an old rsv4 pipe. Or at least copying the design. The ducati motogp bike also looks like an Aprilia frame.

    It's the new "Hypermotard 848" 

    I paste/copy ( and translate with Google Translator) directly from the Italian magazine "":


    It's obvious the line, with references to the old model in the front but with some innovations, such as air intakes for the air box. The minimalist design is always enough, but now it is conditioned and features the new chassis. The frame is in fact mixed, before lattice (different from that seen on any other Ducati) and aluminum back, with a sharp and slender tail, without the complication of the exhaust under the seat. In the picture you realize that the number plate ruins a little 'back, while it is obvious that the final volume will be enhanced by staining (red of course, maybe black and white, but there spettiamo also yellow, the Streetfighter has already seen 848 ).
    The exhaust is unique and on the right side. Important dimensions, the silencer is lightened by the aluminum base. The share of blue that you see could be the sensors for measuring the temperature of the system, and of course there will be the final version. On the subject of cycling, there are the circles completely new (three races each in the form of "Trident") and Öhlins suspension front and rear, where we find the traditional single-sided swingarm. Because you have seen pictures on the net with the bike without suspension Swedes, it is plausible that in Bologna will make two versions of the Hypermotard 848, a "base" and an R or S.
    The engine is already used for the 848 twin Ages and Streetfighter 848, clearly limited version than the one mounted on the sport. Confirmed then the clutch in an oil bath (as seen from the right case), while the power should be about 120 hp to the wheel, as for the naked. Even if some bhp less would not change the situation and perhaps, indeed, a small reduction in power could give to this little engine that 'determination of the low that has never been his talent best. The exhaust has a tortuous course, you can realize that the collectors do a lap in front of the rear wheel rather intricate, and the plant should be equipped with a valve.

    1 correction: looking the picture... front suspension is NOT Olhins but Marzocchi, same of Multistrada base version.

    2013 Ducati Hypermotard 848 Caught Blurring the Lines Between the Multistrada? 2013 Ducati Hypermotad 848 spy photo 635x475

    We have a sneaking suspicion that the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard 848 that has been spotted tramping about is going to be a very interesting motorcycle indeed; as from out perspective, Ducati seems set to consolidate the Hypermotard line into a single water-cooled model, while simultaneously offering a smaller-displacement multi-tasker that will slot in under the Ducati Multistrada 1200.

    Our best view yet of the bike’s exhaust side comes from the folks at Moto Revue, as we see what looks to be a finalized exhaust can and a clear view of the HM848′s water-cooled Testastretta 11° motor. There has been tremendous confusion/controversy as to whether the spied machine is a new Hypermotard or Multistrada model, and the confusion is rightfully so, as the bike takes cues from both machines.

    The seat is obviously dirt bike inspired, and is very similar to the current Hypermotard setup. Similarly, the nose/fender of the bike is a direct evolution of the Terblanche aesthetic, with the tank shape and side fairings furthering this likeness as they protrude forward.

    Using the water-cooled 849cc Testastretta 11° motor though (we enjoyed this lump immensely while riding the 2012 Ducati Streetfighter 848), the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard 848 is treading into a space that was previously occupied solely by the Multistrada 1200, i.e. a water-cooled all-rounder with some off-road chops. This leads us to the conclusion that Ducati is opening a new role for the Hypermotard, which struggles for sales in just about every market except Italy.

    A weaker component to the otherwise robust Ducati model line-up, the Bologna Brand is surely eyeing a new way to get sales going again for the Hypermotard. Getting pressure not only to consolidate its engine line-up to fewer models, the march away from air-cooled engines continues, as emission standards continue to increase. Seeing the strong sales of the Multistrada 1200, especially the cheaper base model, everyone expects Ducati to release an 848 version of the Multi.

    Since a water-cooled Hypermotard would crossover too greatly with a smaller-displacement Multistrada, it makes perfect sense then that Ducati would combine those two models into a single unit (Multitard anyone?). Distinct enough from the Multistrada 1200, both in terms of displacement and form-factor, the 2013 Ducati Hypermotard 848 could be positioned to take advantage of the best aspects from both these machines, which is exactly what Ducati appears to be doing aesthetically from what we’ve seen of the bike thus far.

    Expected to debut in November at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, time will tell what Ducati has up its sleeve, but there is considerable buzz regarding this bike, both in & out of Ducati HQ.
