Ergonomics are revised as well with a slimmer seat, subframe, and wider handlebars to aid the aggressive riding purpose of the machine. The frame isn’t a carryover but all new, and featuring tubes of varying diameter to minimize weight. Further weight savings are found through new wheels, brake discs with aluminum flanges, lightweight Marzocchi fork, and touches on the engine. All told, the standard Hypermotard is 8 pounds lighter than the older model, and the Hypermotard SP—with Öhlins fork—is 6 pounds lighter than the older SP. The SP is 4.4 pounds lighter than the standard model due to a sprinkling of carbon fiber on the mudguard and belt covers.
