The minds at Ducati have been busy lately. The Italian manufacturer pulled back the curtains on three new machines at the 2012 EICMA International Motorcycle Show, including the water-cooled 2013 Hypermotard. Using and 821cc variant of the company's Testastretta 11-degree DS V-twin, the Hypermotard dishes out 110 horsepower and 65.8 pound-feet of torque thanks in part to a smaller bore and longer stroke than the standard 848cc engine. The revised Hypermotard tips the scales at 436.5 lbs fully fueled and boasts Kayaba front forks with 6.7-inches of travel. Out back, a Sachs rear shock serves up 5.9-inches of flex, though the Hypermotard SP delivers more inches in both categories.

By most accounts, the Ducati Diavel is as wicked a cruiser as you're likely to find, but that didn't stop engineers from pouring a few tricks from the Ducati Performance line onto the bike. The result is the 2013 Diavel Strada. Designed to serve up easy miles, the new bike offers up a larger windscreen, slightly higher handlebars with heated grips and a gel seat. There's also a higher capacity generator on board to help power additional electronics via two 12-volt ports.

Then there's 2013 Ducati 1199 Panigale R. A subtly tweaked version of last year's bike, the 2013 model now features a 500 rpm rev boost thanks in part to light-weight titanium connecting rods and a lightened flywheel. There's also a four-point adjustable swing arm for the first time, and a full race exhaust and ECU helps the bike spit out 201 horsepower on the top end. More importantly, Ducati says the Panigale R now generates 15 percent more mid range power. Want one? Better pull a stinking $29,995 from your wallet.

      I know a tone of AutoBlog readers do not care for Motorcycle coverage, but for those of us who do, thank you for your continuing coverage and I hope there will be a bit more.

        Ditto for me. I don't really know that much about bikes, compared to cars, but I love looking at them!

        Agreed. I love bikes and cars and the Duacti Hypermotard looks like a winner but what I really want is that KTM Superduke R prototype. Hopefully KTM will put it into production.

          Love the IM TT, I think it's perhaps the most dangerous race on Earth now.

      The R model Panigale had to arrive as it scheduled to hit WSBK this year. The price is stiff, but I remember most R spec Ducati's were in the same neighborhood. Looking forward to WSBK next year with BMW and Kawasaki being more competitive and now Ducati is bringing the new bike. With the direction (or lack of) in MotoGP, WSBK could be the place to be again.

      Naked bikes with single swing arms are awesome.
