SPEED | 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 796

Getting a new Ducati is going to be slightly more accessible this year with the release of their Hypermotard 796. The lightweight 796 clocks in at a dry weight of 396lbs and will have a twin-cylinder engine capable of producing 81 horsepower and 55.7lb-ft of torque. It features an all-new Ducati 796 engine good for 81hp and incredible fuel mileage, an APTC "wet" clutch offering a slipper action to prevent rear-end destabilization during agressive down-shifting — perfect for stop-and-start driving — and either a matte black, matte white, or Ducati red finish. The Hypermotard 796 hits showrooms in late October and the price tag will be $9,995, not bad for an Italian beast! (via)
