Thanks Neil, appreciate your feedback!
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!
I'm still waitin to see what happen with this.........
one more week.....
As reported by http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bikes/2013-ducati-hypermotard-sp/#more-37178
what we all have been waiting for!
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..
I've been waiting for this! The next few weeks should be fun. Way to go Ducati!
Seriously loving this idea. :eek1
I may have to wait 4 years before I buy a nice used one though.
I for one have been looking for something appropriate to upgrade my Gran Canyon with and this looks like all I will be needing.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Love it. Realistically when would these hit the dealer floor?
I have been told in my area April to May before we'll see the bikes here in Colorado
funny that you should say that....
I upgraded from my Gran Canyon in September to my 2010 990 SM-T
I saw that......
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.
Looks like Ducati let the Multistrada and the Hypermotard get busy...
Their 'love child' looks pretty good.
Link to EICMA Ducati Hypermotard/Hyperstrada video. Some good close ups & note Termignoni exhaust on the HMT.
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
