NCR Leggera: superlight, street-legal Hypermotard

This NCR Leggera 1200 Special is reportedly the lightest hypermotard ever made, using mostly titanium parts, and is also NCR’s first street legal bike.
The Ducati Hypermotard it’s based on has been reduced by a full 57kg, and has even gained power in the process, up by 20 hp.

The 1100 Hypermotard has undergone modifications to most of its components, with the large majority of parts and the whole frame made from titanium.

There is a ceramic-carbon front brake and the carbon fibre bodywork and wheels add to the weight reduction.

Engine modifications include more titanium for the valves, magnesium engine covers, NCR race cams, and bigger bore cylinders making for 110 hp.
The minimalist, lightweight bike is pricey, coming in at £87,800 for the UK, although it’s on the NCR site at 76,000 USD.
Which is basically in inverse proportion to its 157 kg weight.
A full engine performance kit from NCR Corse is also available with 132 hp on a bike weighing just 135 kg.
Specs and more details after the jump.
