Can't wait to see it with the rear wheel and TKC on it.
I absolutely LOVE outside of the box bikes.
Anyone can buy a GS/GSA or a 950/990 ADV {anyone with money} and they work great, but building something you want is WAY cooler.

Cool project! I am using Harley hubs front and rear on my CB750 tracker project. The great thing is that they are 52mm OD (at least in the rear haven't checked front I have the same front hub as you) and bearings are easily available that have a 25mm or 20mm axle size

The weird thing is I am mounting the front hub up to an Aprilia Shiver 750 front end...what are the chances?

You are correct about the front hub weighing a ton, I was shocked when I took it out of the box.

Since you already have the front, it would be simple to get the rear Harley sportster hub. I do know those have a 52mm OD bore and a 6304 bearing gives you 20mm ID , 6205 is 25mm ID. And getting rims with 40 spokes is dead simple and inexpensive.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.

LOVE those Alitalia graphics on that bike on page 4.

I also agree with whoever said they wish Ducati would make an adventure version of the Hypermotard. That would be nice but service intervals is still too high. My DREAM bike would be a Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Touring "adv" with laced wheels and a 19" front.....maybe 2 more inches of travel. That would be a new stock bike I would save up for and buy and risk a divorce over.

Thanks for the comments.

Answer/comments of my own:
The rear should be back soon from Hagon, its a Metzeler Karoo (T), I think it might be the '2' version but it looks chunky and is every bit as good (and cheaper!) than TKC's.

Front hub had to be bored on mine to take a metric bearing. The Dorso has 25mm axles, and I couldn't find a bearing with a Imperial OD and metric ID. I know there are 1" ID bearings but that is 25.4mm not 25.0mm. probably doesn't matter, but...
The front wheel is super strong though, even if it is heavy. Its a steel rim, so that will never crack (or if it does I'll be in state that I won't worry about it...). The shape (profile) of the rim makes it less likely that there will be a puncture due to nipping the tube. 40 heavy duty spokes too. It is not going to break easily!
My idea was to use Aprilia parts all the way through, as I do like the tubeless wheels, but as I said, finding a Caponord front that is not f%*ked is very tricky.

I think you could modify a Hypermotard in the same way (off road wheels), its not that hard and I'm not an engineer - If I can do it anyone can! The biggest killer of things like the GS and 1200 Tenere for me is weight - the Dorso is just under 200kg's dry, which is nice and manageable.

I got a 2nd hand front fender/fork protector and will cut that up to try to cover the holes.

More pics to follow.

Next part after the wheels will be that damn seat!

I am going to bore out the front hub to take metric bearings, I think it was 45.7mm and I am going to 47mm. Rear is a bearing swap simple if you want the wheels to match front and rear.

Not true! the new Hyperstrada has a service interval for the valves of 18K miles.

I also would like to see this but not in the 1200, my 820 Strada is plenty powerful slim light and nimble, add some laced wheels with a 19" front and adjustable suspension and we got it!


Hijack over please continue....

Not until this year...
I would never opt for an 820 if there is a 1200 available...I want it ALL, not 2/3's of what could be.
I like the Multi WAY more than the Hyper...but that is what makes the world go round. If someone made "THE" bike and we all rode "THE" bike that would be boring.

Probably a radiator guard. There are a number out there. I need to make sure the front wheel doesn't touch it too, as its pretty tight. The forks can go down in the clamps though and the rad can go back a bit.

Rear on, looks good, but...








I got the rear on today, also put on new fork protectors that I made from an eBay 2nd hand stock part. They were just touching, so I trimmed them down with the angle grinder.

All looks good but...
