Future Hyper owner here - picking it up in a week or so . I currently ride a yamaha FJR1300. Very different type of bike but I want to try somthing different. I absolutely love the looks of the hyper! I'm getting the 6.5 gallon tank installed along with some motovation sliders and probably a windscreen.

Will report back once I get her and post my impressions!

I've had this for a year and a half or so. I'm using it as an occasional ride bike & it's a keeper. I'm tallish and the bike fits. Sit forward like you should and it's comfy, with a side benefit of keeping the front wheel on the ground.

Yup... the 2in1 Termi's really limit the options for luggage. Sure the Givi doesnt look the best, but its all about functionality at that point. The Givi is way more functional than the DP rear bag (the DP bag was honestly a joke imo).

Best part about the Givi, its insanely easy to remove, so when functionality is a must, its simple to have, when styling takes priority, the givi comes right off :)

I demoed the hypers and really liked them. One had a DP seat I think and was very comfortable. The other (non S model) had a different seat and was quite uncomfortable (and I ride dirt bikes and sport bikes so wasn't looking for a lazy-boy). Its a bike I'd love to own, especially if someone comes out with a good fuel tank/airbox solution.

I'm not supposed to get a new bike. Just picked up a Superhawk a month ago.


I sat on a HM "s" yesterday, and can't shake the feeling. Everything was right where it was supposed to be, and I know what 73lbs of torque feels like.....

Looks like another summer without getting a pool.

I have the DP comfort seat and have no problems riding all day. I find that by the time I need to take a break and stretch is about the same time I need to stop for fuel. The HM is the most comfortable bike I have ever owned.

+1. So far 400 mile days of all backroads no problem. GPS to find gas and a couple 2L emergency cans in a tail bag (never used) and its fine for any east coast sport touring.

I've had it for a month or so now and I have to say it's one of the more fun bikes I've owned. My 950 has been beaten to death and leaks oil like a BP well so it's been retired until I can do a full rebuild. I was very lucky to get the Hyper in time for summer. I'm no fan of Terblahhhhh but this was his best bike - perhaps his only good one.

I think the Hyper is one of the "truest" bikes out there in terms of being perfectly suited for the task at hand - just like the 950. The bike is light, super nimble and just begs to be flogged. The aircooled engine is perfect in terms of aesthetics, simplicity, and weight. Lot's of people complain that it runs out of steam after 126mph but honestly this is where modern sportbikes fail - they're designed for a world of ultra high speed. The Hyper is just untouchable under 100mph and on a tight backroad it feels as if you've been shot out of a canon and are riding the canon ball. I like that.

Did a track day recently with CLASS at VIR and while I got waxed between turn 17 and turn one I had no problem from turns 1-17. Deals Gap the following day was too fun and once again, for the riding I do, this bike gave more grins than anything else. She's a little down on power to my 950 but that is very easy to fix with an aftermarket swimming in options.



I'm doing a build on this bike now and while I don't plan on changing it too much I do intend to make it a little different. I'll post a photo when I'm done.
