Speaking of the gearbox, it has now been tweaked to make it easier to engage neutral when at a standstill, similar to improvements made to the Ducati Monster and Supersport 950 with the gearbox drum using reduced friction bearings. Ducati has also added load to the gear level spring which is said to help prevent false neutrals.
The top-spec Hypermotard 950 SP now features a new paint scheme inspired by the company’s MotoGP race machines. Everything else on the SP remains unchanged, including the Ohlins suspension and Marchesini wheels.
