25° steering head angle, 104 mm trail and 30 mm offset allow for stable and safe control without compromising the agility typical of this motorcycle. The frame is connected to the rear subframe, also a steel trellis frame, derived from that of the first Hypermotard. A wide steering angle of 70° allows great handling, while the 1,493 mm (1,498 mm for the SP version) wheelbase allows maximizing stability at high speeds. The fuel tank, with 14.5 litre fuel capacity, lends the Hypermotard 950 excellent overall range without spoiling its essential, curvy lines. The Hypermotard 950 sports a single-sided aluminum swinging arm.
The Sport Riding Mode is suitable for sports-style riding on winding roads or on the track, and delivers the full 114 hp power delivery of the Ducati twin-cylinder engine according to the performance-oriented electronic setup. The Touring Riding Mode is ideal for in-town and out-of-town outings and for those who prefer a neat, smooth ride. The 114 hp of the Ducati twin are delivered according to a more safety-oriented electronic setup. The Urban Riding Mode is designed for everyday use in city traffic and under poor grip conditions, e.g. in the rain. That is why for twin-cylinder Testastretta this mode uses a 75 hp power limit and its electronic settings are all oriented towards maximum safety.
