Ducati Hypermotard vs. Caterham R 500

In an ever continuing saga of Motorcycle vs. Car, Autocar UK decided to put 1800cc 230bhp Caterham R 500 against 1100cc 90hp Ducati Hypermotard 1100.

While the Caterham R 500 beats Pagani C12 S and Porsche 911 twin turbo in 0-100-0 timings, Ducati Hypermotard 1100 is made for fun, not for outright acceleration and top speed.

So what happened when both these beauties were let out on the track, watch the video and find out:

Personally we think it wasn’t really fair to put a Ducati Hypermotard 1100 against Caterham R 500 and the results were kind of expected, had it been Caterham R 500 against a proper 1000cc superbike, we might just have witnessed entirely different results.
