    I thought that I'd bring this thread back to the top and ask if anyone owns or has ridden the Hyper Explorer 796? I'm still interested in the concept - it would be great to know how the bike actualy performs. Thanks!

    From the Ducati web site

    30,000 Kms service interval on the valves thats 18,000 miles to you and me

    16 Liters fuel tank so a little over 4.2 gallons

    APTC oil bath clutch with ‘slipper' function which can be activated with reduced force on the lever.......

    The Ride-by-Wire system, allows 3 different engine mappings to be used to control torque and power:
    110 hp with sporting ""HIGH"" torque
    110 hp with progressive ""MEDIUM"" torque
    75 hp with progressive ""LOW"" torque
    75.9lb-ft 10.5kgm @ 5750rpm

    Bosch 9MP ABS

    8-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

    Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires

    50L semi-rigid side bags

    Center stand Sump Guard

    Sachs monoshock and USD 43mm Forks

    399# Dry 450# Wet weight


    Be nice to see Ohlins rear and 50mm Marzocchi fork as an option which would give it over 7" of travel in the front

    Why not make a new thread? It's a different bike... 3 pages of this thread are about a kit for the Hyper 796..

    and I don't regret that one bit...though it does leave me wondering what to do with the CGC...right now there is stabilant in the fuel and it is on a tender on a rear stand in the garage for the winter while I mull it over.

    I wish it had a little bigger fuel tank and a 19 inch front...I'll be keeping my GC, I don't get the 17 front on any bike that might even occasionally venture of the pavement. But hey that's just my 2 cents, I sure would like to ride one, maybe that would change my mind...

    I to would prefer a 19' front, guess I'll have to send Woodies some business. I'm sure that some
    aftermarket folks will come up with a larger tank if its at all possible like CA Cycle works did for the
