    The Ducati Performance titanium exhaust looks quite similar to the stocker. It is lighter. It felt like about 10-12 pounds. The higher Termi was on the SP we
    saw and looks very cool. You can still fit a bag mount and bag on n the left side if you wish.
    Still not sure which model we will ride in two weeks , but I think it will most likely be the Hypermotard. I think those are the first on the assembly line. I think there is a possibility of some Hyperstradas but I doubt we will sample the SP. It would be nice. Fingers crossed.

    Finaly got to see the new Hypers this past weekend at the Charlotte IMS. With the exception of the exhaust I think that it's a good looking bike. I'm really interested in the Hyperstrada version. The bike's apearance still holds true to its supermoto inspired roots. Way to go Ducati.

    Apparently it still reads the same today.

    Any of you guys know of a fix?

    Did he actually hit 99,999 km and stop counting? Possibly an ECU reflash? Best bet would be over on Ducati.ms under the Hyper section. Lots of guys in the Hyper know-how over there.

    Question for those in the know: There is a 2010 Hyper SP with the CalWorks Tank, sliders and a few other bits for sale in my area. It looks to be a consignment sale and the bike has about 7K miles. The asking price is $10K. Is this a reasonable price for a bike with these mods?

    I've been drooling over the Hyper since it came out and always talk myself out of it: not practical, Ducati maintenance, not what I need, blah blah blah. Since I am divorced now, and only have to consider what I like for myself, a tasty, impractical bike is high on my list. Is it worth it to drop this much coin for a bike that is soon to be "previous generation"? I still have my SV1000n decked out for sporty touring, which is a hoot, but the motor sometimes overwhelms the chasis. I'd like something a little sharper for tooling around/hooliganism/lady hunting. :ear

    Does someone have to rationalize it for you?
    That bike was $14.5k new. The big tank is $700 or $800 plus there are other somewhat spendy parts you have to add to put it on the bike. So there is more than $5300 off the price of new plus just the tank. Probably several hundred more!
    7000 miles? Due for 1st valve adjust & whatever. If it has frame sliders I think I’d take them off. That is going by what I have read here ... http://www.ducati.ms/forums/92-hypermotard/
    I love my 2010 SP & would have loved to save that $4500 & buy a 7K mile bike. My bike has never suffered from any of the somewhat common low speed running or high speed handling complaints.
    You decide. :deal

    Yeah he thought it would happen when he got there and it did.

    The HM is his only transport.

    I will give him the link. Thanks.

    I'd jump on it. What bike is "practical"? They all suck when the weather is bad. If we wanted practical we'd all be driving econo-box cars. Maintenance is stupid simple...valve adjustments require a shim kit but you don't have to spend big bucks at a dealer on simple belt replacements and service interval work. Download the Ducati service manual (shop manual) and it walks you through the entire thing. Biggest peeve is that everything is in metric so I have to keep a NM --> Ft/lbs converter open in the background on my laptop.

    Or you could get a torque wrench that was made after 1980? :D
