     “Anyone that wants to discover their inner hooligan that is considering the Hypermotard 950 is barking up the right tree”
The nucleus of the new machine is the revitalized 937cm Testastretta 11° L-twin; boast- ing a claimed 114hp at 9,000 rpm and 70.8 lb-ft of torque whereas eighty percent of it is available at 3,000 rpm. Along with the name change comes new pistons with a 13.3:1 compression ratio (compared to 12.6:1), new exhaust cam profiling, and a new exhaust system that runs underneath the seating unit. The Hypermotard 950 has also gained new, lighter clutch and alternator covers, a lighter gear shift drum, magnesium cam covers, and has made the switch from steel to aluminum chain tensioners. It also features new, fully- adjustable, lighter 45mm Marzocchi forks, and an adjustable Sachs shock. Brembo M4.32 four-piston radial Monoblock calipers are fitted on the front wheel with 320mm-diameter discs, and the rear is a Brembo caliper with a 245mm disc. It sports lighter aluminum wheels with three Y-spokes and Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires mounted front and rear.
