DUCATI HYPERMOTARD 796 NEXT BIKE IN MALAYSIA 

Next Bike sdn. bhd. has launched the Ducati Hypermotard 796 in Malaysia this April 2010 with price tag at RM79,000. This offering many new features requested by Ducatisti worldwide: a more affordable package to the Hypermotard 1100,including a lighter weight, lower seat height, and the inclusion of a super-light action APTC clutch.

After being launched last autumn at the EICMA Show in Milan as a middleweight super motard, Ducati’s all-new Hypermotard 796 turns out being, as expected, a smaller and much more versatile twin-cylinder Italian motorcycle with sportbike credentials and very aggressive looks

The Hypermotard 796’s engine is an air-cooled, two valves per cylinder unit developing 81bhp at 8,000rpm and 75.5Nm of torque at 6,250rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox.

The handsome looking bike features a revised trellis frame made of ALS 450 steel tubing, with each tube mitred and micro-fusion welded in a complex triangulated pattern. Standard fitment kit includes radially-mounted 4-pot Brembo callipers and twin 305mm semi-floating discs in front and a two-piston calliper/245mm disc at the rear.

Suspension-wise, the front gets 43mm Marzocchi forks, with completely redesigned top and bottom fork clamps, while at the back, the Sachs suspension features adjustable spring preload and return damping, and the bike rides on 17-inch five-spoke Enkei wheels.

other review

“Ducati’s entry-level 803cc Hypermotard 796 is a stormer of a machine. It’s 12kg lighter and its seat is 20mm lower than the Hypermotard 1100, which makes it easier to ride and in the real world, and every bit as fast from A to B.” – MCN

“The engine’s rough running manners at low rpm only exacerbates this and makes us wonder why Ducati motorcycles can’t run smoothly at low rpm. Keep the revs above 4000 however, and the engine shows none of the aforementioned characteristic, instead delivering a smooth, fat spread of power all the way to the top of the tachometer.” – motorcycle-usa

“Turns are even more entertaining on the 796; simply shift the bike’s weight and lean with light handlebar effort, and the whole motorcycle becomes intuitively obedient to your input. Though the 43 mm Marzocchi forks dive somewhat during aggressive front braking, a touch of rear brake tames much of that tendency.” – motorcycles.about

“What impressed as much the 796’s grunty mid-size motor and its precise steering but rock-steady chassis, was the sublime performance from the dual 4-piston radial-mount Brembos squeezing 305mm semi-floating rotors.” – motorcycle

“The Hypermotard 796 is a serious riding machine both on corner entry, mid corner and corner exits. The 796 lives for corners, and it seems whilst riding that every single corner was designed for the Hypermotard.” – ultimatemotorcycling

“This is a bike with some niggles, but it also has a character and style that so often eludes the mainstream – it might annoy you at times, but you’ll fall in love with it anyway. What impresses is the overall balance of power and agility, which make this a better choice than the 1100 for many riders.” – telegraph
