I have a confession to make (it’s a confession only because my family would kill me for even uttering it): I’ve always want a motorbike and the Ducati Hypermotard 796 seems to have leaped out of my dreams and into the real world. This super-sleek, super sexy is, according to, the "perfect mix of performance and urban utility."

With features I don’t even care about at this point, the Ducati Hypermotard 796 has to be mine. But for those who don’t just rely on looks, this bike features an all-new Ducati 796 engine, offers an APTC "wet" clutch and is in matte black, matte white, or Ducati red finish.

Available in November 2009, if I had the money, there would be one less matte black Ducati Hypermotard 796.
