Each of these new Hypermotards features a new tubular-steel trellis frame, and a subframe constructed with a combination of die-cast aluminum and a techno-polymer between the rails. But the major suspension components, along with the wheels and brakes, are what really distinguish the two models from each other. The standard Hypermotard has a 43mm KYB fork and a Sachs shock, offering 6.7 inches of travel in front and 5.9 in back., plus cast aluminum wheels and Brembo M4-32 monoblock brakes with four-piston calipers. The SP has a 50mm Marzocchi fork and an Öhlins shock, offering 7.3 inches of front travel and 6.9 in back, as well as lightweight forged Marchesini wheels. Although the calipers and discs are identical on each bike, the SP has a radial-pump master cylinder. Other SP upgrades include a tapered aluminum handlebar (in place of steel), magnesium cam covers and carbon-fiber front fender and cam-belt covers.
