Cycle World -- December 2007, page 64 -- 2008 Ducati Hypermotard 1100S: Blurring the lines...

    "Nothing to complain about with the motor. If you haven't had the chance to sample the big-bore version of Ducati's two-valve, dual-spark engine, it's a real treat. The 1078cc Twin has been bored from 94 to 98mm but uses the same 71.5mm stroke as the 1000, with compression raised half a point to 10.5:1. On the Cycle World dyno, the engine produced 80 horsepower and 69 foot-pounds of torque. That's about 4 hp less than the last Multistrada 1100 we tested due to the HM's smaller airbox, but it makes an additional 2 ft-lb of torque at its 4900-rpm peak." -- Blake Conner, Associate Editor
