The Ducati Riding Modes mark a turning-point in motorbike engineering and allow a choice to be made, depending on the model, from preset modes to optimise the vehicle’s performance on the basis of the rider’s riding style and the environmental conditions. The innate sporting nature of the SP version of the new Hypermotard family is highlighted by the use of the same 3 Riding Modes as the 1199 Panigale, which are programmed to instantly change the engine torque and the intervention levels of the ABS and Ducati Traction Control even while riding: RACE: The Race Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a direct response from the RbW on acceleration, minimum intervention from the DTC system and level 1 efficiency from the ABS which is applied only to the front wheel and without rear wheel lift control. SPORT: The Sport Riding Mode provides 110 hp with a more progressive response from the RbW on acceleration, average level intervention from the DTC system and level 2 high braking efficiency from the ABS with reduced control over lift. WET: The Wet Riding Mode provides 75 hp with gradual response from the RbW on acceleration, intervention from the DTC system close to the maximum threshold and level 3 braking efficiency from the ABS with maximum stability on braking and control over lift.
