Ducati simply can't get their bikes to run like the Japanese bikes even after all these years of FI.
I am dumping the Termgioni and going back to a stock exhaust and ECU.

From what you read the 796 engine is smoother than the 1100 and is down on torque only.

I think they look a little crap with the 2 into 1 also.
Like something is missing from the rear,wait a minute.. there is.

The fuel tank is still hard to believe some idiot came up with the 12.5 litre capacity.
Even my DR at 13 litres (stock) was lame.

I forgot to add,the 1100 with the Termgioni and DP ECU is not that flash down low either.
The 1078 two valve engine with its long stroke should be a nice linear power all the way from idle to redline.
A round town bike it is not.
It needs space and regular fuel stations.
Great bike,flawed design.

They are over US$20000 here new.

Current exchange rate is around US$ = 96 cents Australian.

My only complaints with my 796.


1. Front end is soft ($60 fix from info I just read)
2. Lack of helmet locks, which I fixed on my own.


I've got 4,000 miles on my 796 and I've ridden in stop and go traffic, mountain twisties, solo, and 2-up. I even marshalled in the US Pro cycling challenge time trial when it was in Vail. Which is nothing but a slow speed skills test going up a curvy hill with people everywhere at like 10 miles an hour. I lived in the friction zone that day,

Bike did fantastic.

My bike is stock, and I love it.

My 1100 Hyper works real good around town. Having a lot more steering lock than some of my other bikes is real nice too. Much easier to do a u-turn on a two lane street than the others.

Couldn't agree more. Around town the bike is a pleasure. Mine's bone stock and I have no issues with fueling or gearing. I've been riding v-twins for years so maybe I'm numb to the condition.

He is numb to the condition.

But he's right.

My 07 is OK (I mean in city not suburb riding at 70 kmh (40 mph) or less down to 50 kmh at a constant throttle.
The bike hunts badly with richness.
I am going to go back to a stock pipe and ECU to see what happens.
I might even look at getting the fuel injectors ultra sonically cleaned,new air and fuel filters first.
Work gets in the way of things right now. (FIFO 28 on /6 days off)

Ducati's since 1983,TL1000's since 2000, however many years that is.

Hey Les,

The hypers I've ridden (three different 1100s, one all stock, two with exhaust and ECU - one was 2-1 the other 2-2) were all much better mannered than my TLS was stock and maybe better (no worse for certs) than my TLS after all the re-mapping. I did think the stock one pulled a touch harder at low rpms. I thought that other than a heavy clutch pull they were downright civilized. I was with a big slow group for part of the time and didn't note any hunting. I wonder if US models differ than your models. I'd have no qualms about riding them in the city (my city is Wash. D.C. which is about as city as city gets short of NYC).

Have you considered the CA Cycleworks 6+ gal tank? Seems like it'd make the hyper a lot more useful.

Can you play with the fueling yourself to sort it? Sorta like a PCII or III on a TL or ECMSpy or Tunerpro on a buell?

FWIW the MTS1200 I rode was as smooth and clean as anything I've ever ridden so duc can make a super-smooth running bike if they put their mind to it. Too much so I thought, was almost a bore really

My local dealer has a SMT990 that looks like it'd be a hoot as well. I'm having fun with the buell, though the motor is astoundingly weird and downright terrible from a performance standpoint (there's a little puff of power from 5500-7100rpm, weak below and limiter just a bit above that), but somehow ultra smooth and relaxed on the highway and the seat/ergonomics are more comfy than my sofa (quite literally!).

I still lust for a hyper, such fun and good looking bikes they are.

Anyway, I'm sure you'll sort the hyper

Laugh Here is mine, in Maine

Here is my 796. It is a 2010 left over bought new for a good price. I love it!!
I would like to mount a skid plate to ride it on dirt road without damaging anything, but I cannot find anything for this model. It seems that the only option is to have holes drilled in the horizontal cylinder to mount the DP plate or the Strada-avventurosa one. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!!

What's going on? I haven't seen you in a while. Got Leo vince pipes and cat eliminator, PC-V, Ducshop velocity stacks, and a few other goodines on the way (Merry Christmas to me). We need to get together. Are you still working at the shop on the weekends?

OK, here's an update. Added Ducshop stacks and a LV cat eliminator (still waiting on pipes to come in), HUGE difference in fueling. Much smoother below 4K RPM, evil growl during acceleration and much more power. I let the TPS reset itself and haven't added the PCV yet and the popping during deceleration is gone; pipes show no signs of a lean condition. Vast improvement to the overall riding experience. Sweet
