Hey,

so what is the required/recommended octane level the Ducati 939 Hypermotards should be taking. I have been using 93 Oct. but I’ve heard these bikes should be running a lower octane like 89 or 91 , is this true?

Can someone advise please

Higher octane won't hurt the bike but if the motor is designed for lower then it doesn't help... the newer Hyper's are 13:1 - that's pretty high, I'd definitely run 93 (and would be a bit surprised if Ducati recommended lower).

Only asking because Ducati told my brother to run low octane on his 999R but that’s and older bike reason being.
