Hypermotard Dealership Premiere - April 19, 2013, 12:03 PM

So I got this e-mail and, as much as I hate to say it, this bike has got me thinking about hanging out in Starbucks parking lots more. What's the deal with this event?

Argh. Way to many fun toys out on the market these days!

Better looking than the Street Triple IMHO...
Lots of cool bits on the Hypermotard...
A wee bit more power than the Street Triple...
About 30lbs heavier than the Street triple though...

The shocker? Both of them have about the same MSRP. I have yet to be successfully seduced by Ducati despite their pure sex lines - but it's getting harder.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

I don't know that there's a lot you can compare this bike to except maybe a dorsoduro or a 990 SMT. This thing has 7+ inches of travel.

I had a 950SM and it was a great all around bike. This is 10 more hp and 25 less pounds.

Stupid Question warning: What is the point of this bike?

I actually like it, but I am curious what it does better than like a normal street bike. *At the above post by Windblown; why would someone choose this over a Street Triple or a Street Triple over this?

Just curious

I would get this over a street triple for jumping, wheelies, and general hooliganism.

Personal preference is about all from a design standpoint. The motor on the Street may have a bit less gyro affect and be a bit smoother but it also doesn't quite measure up to the Ducatis HP/Torque numbers.

Both have about the same sit-up and beg riding positions. The overall weight and HP numbers aren't all that far apart. In essense both are basically light weight naked standards in reality (sacriledge to say so in certain circles but it is what it is).

The Triumph would have a better warranty unless things have changed in that regard over at Ducati. I can see good reasons to want either, or both.

I really dig the look of the motard type bikes. KTM has some that have had me drooling from time to time as well. Yet in the end they are basically very light street bikes with a long travel suspension. They may look a bit like a dirt bike but they have drifted quite aways from their origins in that regard.

Warranty on the Duc is 2 year unlimited mileage... service for valves on these is 18000 miles.. As far as the purpose of the events, it's just something Ducati does to introduce the new bikes to the public... special shirts for staff, lanyards, etc.. Our launch happens to coincide with our Velocita Exotica event, so not only do you get to see the new bike, but you get to see a bunch of cool ass exotic cars and classic bikes too.
As far as what the bike is, they sorta gave you 3 flavors this time around with the different models.. Strada is your light touring bike with a hooligan soul, the Hyper is your standard lightweight fun bike, and the SP is the most focused one of the family... that one is the niche one of the 3..

I'm really excited about the Strada. I think this is a great bike and alternative for those that want a comfortable, flickable, commuter. It's got MTS like usability except lighter and I'm sure more agile.

Any questions about the hyper should look to my review when the Duc truck came to Duck Pond a few years back : DUC TRUCK DEMOS - Ducpond June 27-28

You feel like a special ed kid given free reign in a cupcake shop, the shit eating grin dosent fade, its a hooligan bike with refined Italian engineering. Ive yet to convince the wife, but she will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine.

The best description I read of riding a Hypermotard was... Its like taking a puppy out for a walk... But you're the puppy.

I rode the new Hyper SP and Strada a few weeks ago. I like the new engine, I like it a lot. I've always had a place in my heart for the Hyper due to its shear fun on two wheels aspect. Now after riding the new one I want to make a place in my garage for it.


Cheers,
