This hyperstrada is too much hp, too much weight, and too much cost. I guess I'll keep waiting...
The Multistrada 620 was one of the most fun bikes I've ridden - way more nimble than the 1100, but it was 61 hp and just over 400 lbs.
The new Hyperstrada is one of 3 new Hypermotard models. The lightest is just over 400, but still has that re-tuned 848.
I do agree that it don't need 110 hp, but I'm dying to get a ride on it!
It might, might, persuade me to get it instead of a monster this spring.
