  • Would the tard be OK for a two-up trip? I would like to be able to take a certain someone with me sometimes.
I ride 2-up with my wife and her only comfort complaint is the heat from the under seat exhaust gets to her ass some times. Our trips have just been 200 milers up into the mountains and back. Nothing super long distance.
  • Are the luggage options decent? Like the tank pannier things?
Haven't really looked, but have seen different setups on www.ducati.ms

  • Is the 796 worth it? I am coming from a cb550 so I was thinking I did not want to jump to something so insanely fast. the 796 seemed a good fit for that bill
I came from a 600 sportbike. So the increase in torque was nice.

  • Is there an alternative to those mirrors...
Yes

Has anyone had any starting issues? My friend had his hyper die this morning. When he turns the key, the dash is blank. The headlight does not come on but the parking lights do and the brake light lights up strong. Tried to jump the battery but it seems that the ECU is somehow frozen/dead? Has anyone had any simlar issues? I checked a few fuses bu they all seemed to be fine. Is there any wat to do a reset on the unit by some combination of key/throttle manipulation or anything like that?

Agree on checking the battery terminals.

Only running problem I have ever had was caused by a loosened terminal - and I set it up out of the crate.
They have been known to loosen up pretty easily.

What's up? Loving the Hyper, definately needs to breathe better though, really lean in stock form.

I wouldn't know - mine's never been in "stock" trim.

Haven't decided on the exhaust yet ?

Would love to go Termi but the cost would have me eating PB&J sandwiches for a month. Have to sell off some of my gear to help fund whatever I get; I've got jackets and helmets all over the place.

HM 796, just over 5,000km up - traded my '08 1100HM in for this, needed a fresh new injection of fun....very happy with it!!

here's mine this afternoon at about 4.30, sun beaming down on it, only 9c for the 50km ride home, a bit chilly but so much fun.....(Thats Bendemeer Pub in the background)



and yesterdays afternoon spin:


I don't mind admitting I'm getting a bit too old for all that power (coming from someone who complained about the rev limiter light always coming on ) but I do envy the Evo models.

I checked every fuse/terminal/plug connector etc. I think it may have been the ECU. Waiting to hear what happened.

I am sure fellow Hyper owners have the same complaints I do .....

1) fuel range

2) luggage



I have had a set of these for a year and a couple of weeks ago had a china syndrome melt down on an exhaust pipe.





I have also looked at the larger fuel tanks but hate to take the bike apart.


so here is my current set up for touring ..... granted I am not going to be running flat out in the twisties like this....


Ventura rack and bag with a Rotopax mounted to the back rack .... an extra gallon should give me + or - 185 mile range ... maybe 200 ish ???







I will let ya know how this handles fully loaded ASAP ....

Last week I brought my 996 in to have some work done and new tires put on. I had been looking at new bikes since spring, not seriously, just seeing what's out there. I thought I wanted a 796 Monster but the Hyper looked interesting too.

Anywhos, they had a 796 Wee 'tard on the floor, marked down. One thing led to another... I picked it up on Saturday. I had to get rid of my beloved '97 900ss to get it though, so it was a bittersweet trip.

I know you've all seen stock hypers so this isn't anything new, but I also know without pics it didn't happen, so here's the proof!


I've only put about 100 miles on it so far. When I'm not around it, I really miss my 900. When I'm on it, I don't miss the 900 at all. I can not beleive how smooth and quiet it seems compared to my 900. This morning I rode it in to work through heavy fog. I've ridden in fog before but damn, this was the wettest stuff I've been in. May was well have been raining and me leaving my rainsuit at home. But the Hyper handled itself well and I realized that the same ride on my 900 would have been terrifying. On the 796 it was just unpleasant. And now the sun has come out so the ride home should be MUCH more enjoyable!

So, what is life like with a Hypermotard? I am considering one of the new 796's. I currently have a couple Yamaha WR250's (X and R), which are super low maintenance bikes.

Are the Hypermotards going to be a pain in the ass, or have the newer Ducati's become easier to live with? I just love the look of the Hyper... IMHO one of the best looking bikes out there.
