The Hypermotard 796 incorporates features requested by Ducatisti including new colors, lighter weight, lower seat height, lower MSRP and super-light action APTC wet clutch. Updated frame and triple clamps and improved frame design have eliminated almost all the forged pieces contributing to a 27lb reduction in weight from the Hypermotard 1100.

- 81hp and 55.7 lb-ft of torque
- 32.5in seat height, .8in less than 1100

The 2010 Ducati 796 will be available at authorized Ducati dealerships in December 2009. The 796 will be available in Dark finish with a matte black tank and beak section and black wheels or, matte white with a matte black beak will also be available. Purists may prefer the 1100 look-alike red tank, beak and frame with black wheels color scheme. Priced at $9,995 the Hypermotard 796 is a bargain for a hand built Italian motorcycle.
