Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2008 Ducati Hypermotard 1100S. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
If you’re not familiar with this monster motard, here’s the short version: in the spring of 2005, Ducati designer Pierre Terblanche pitched management on an extreme street fighter — street performance in a new aesthetic package. The concept bike debuted that fall in Milan. Based on the hugely positive reaction the bike received from motorcyclists around the world, company president Federico Minoli green-lighted the project immediately.
Similar in many respects (steering geometry, wheelbase, seat height, and suspension travel) to the award winning Multistrada, the Hypermotard has changed little since its first appearance. The LED front turn indicators were relocated from the backs of the folding, handlebar-end-mounted mirrors to the neighboring hand guards; the wide, tubular handlebar was raised; the gas tank was widened by half an inch to allow a fuel capacity of nearly 3.3 gallons; the single 320mm front brake rotor was replaced with a pair of 305mm semi-floating discs; and the taillight was mounted higher to meet homologation standards.
As its name suggests, the 1100 is powered by the Ducati’s venerable air-cooled, fuel-injected, two-valve-per-cylinder, desmo V-Twin. Now displacing 1078cc, up from 992cc, the engine produces a claimed 90 horsepower and 76 foot-pounds of torque. Dry weight is said to be 390 pounds. This S version includes standard diamond-like carbon fork coating, reservoir-equipped Öhlins shock, monobloc Brembo brake calipers, and red-pinstriped forged Marchesini wheels.
Manufactured in May of 2007, this example is VIN: ZDM1YACP08B001245. The seller acquired it nine years ago from GP Motorcycles in San Diego, California.

The 7,500-mile service was performed at Ducati Newport Beach in Costa Mesa, California in June of 2015 with 8,084 miles on the odometer – it included a valve check, oil/filter change, air filter, spark plugs, brake fluid flush, clutch service, new battery, and new timing belts. The CA Cycleworks tank had developed a crack and was replaced under warranty at this time.
