Last week you read all about the new 2019 Ducati Hypermotard 950 and 950 SP and saw the photos in living color. Today, it’s time to watch the stunning, action-packed 3:35-minute video, filmed on location in beautiful Gran Canaria and starring yours truly in a performance the Academy will have to stand up and notice. Sorry there’s no onboard footage, as I hit the Still Photo option on the GoPro instead of Video, but it’s the thought that counts. There is plenty of beautiful footage courtesy of Ducati‘s crew, though, and there’s even a wardrobe malfunction. Roll film!

2019 Ducati Hypermotard 950

+ Highs

Great, smooth awesome-sounding Ducati power
DQS is great on the SP; plugs right into the base bike
A partying ’til dawn exotic Italian thing you can almost afford

– Sighs

Short people got no reason to live
WTF is up with turn signals built into bark busters?
Expert riders grumble they can’t switch ABS all the way off
