Sunday night was the first time we had ever been to the Beverly Center, and the first time anybody stateside had officially seen the 2007 Ducati Hypermotard S. Oddly enough the Supermotard craze grew out of the Superbikers series on Wide World of Sports. Superbikers brought together road and off-road motorcycle racing, and a Supermotard melds elements of a dirt bike and a street bike. Ducati has taken the idea one step further and produced the Hypermotard, which melds elements Streetfighter and Supermotard motorcycles. An air-cooled 1100cc Desmodromic twin supplies the hyper in moto. McDreamy, Mini-Me, the Rampage and a Dane were also on deck to check out the motard action.
