Nice although not enough to tempt me from my 1200. That new Hypermotard as a second bike though

Why do Ducati keep building bikes I need to own. It's most unfair......

As a recent convert to the Bologna marque, i can only sit back and admire what they, KTM and BMW are doing. The show at Milan highlights that the big 4 are in terminal decline here in Yerp.

Me too! It looks like they cheaped out a bit on the forks and shocks though. I'm pretty sure my '07 Hyper had 50mm Marzocchi shocks, and it seems like they've continued to go downscale from there.

Considering there wasnt Hypermotards in 07 and they didnt put Marzocchi's on untill the 2010 1100SP came out I kind of doubt it.

I would Like to see a SP Hyperstrada with the Ohlins rear Marzocchi front

as i said over at .MS.....the days of a Ducati "S" bike meaning Ohlins front and rear (along with forged alum wheels) are slowly coming to an end.

on the flip-side, you will be able to buy a Ducati bike with bags on it!

Ohlins are great shocks. When they work, that is. And they are over-priced as well. The bling factor remains, of course. And we will continue to buy Ohlins as a prove we spend not on what is rational, but on promise and belief, besides bling.
