I think that you are correct. That oil cooler is very small too.
If you look at the picture of the "Dirtcati" is looks like they used the SC front fork which means that you don't have to worry about hitting anything as it has very little travel. Looking ahh the oil cooler, on the Bimota, it does appear to be shorter top to bottom than the one on the 1100 Hyper, but curved and maybe a bit deeper front to back, so it could have the same surface area.
796 uses a lower/thinner seat than the 1100, or at least they did when I had mine (2011?)
I noticed that the current Strda uses the lower seat too, but that is only 20mm. it gets lower another 1.5 inches by the shorter suspension, which, according to the numbers I had, the 796 did not have. The SP models clearly use a taller suspension. Confusing to say the least. All I know is the the current regular multi kinds fits me and the Strda fits me well. If I could get the simpler engine and the low seat height with the same 6.5 inch fork travel with the 796, then that would be a good thing.
Terra Mostro: HUBBA HUBBA.
Terra Mostro: better setup for a dirt bike, but it kinda looks like a Monster mated with a pygmy giraffe.
The Dirtcati is back up for sale:
The Dirtcati was built and is described here by Ducati Bellevue,
"Part Hypermotard mixed with some Monster 1000S and Sport Classic parts with off-roads bits complete this DualSport 1000 we wish Ducati would built. Details:
-Hypermotard 1100 frame & fuel tank
-Desmodue Dual Spark 992cc engine from a Monster 1000S
-Monster 1000S rear swingarm
In respect to Desert Sleds of the past, the Dirtcati is perfect for those long days on Eastern Washington and Eastern Oregon high desert roads"
I ended up with this bike through a trade, Thought I would ride it more but just don't have the time. The bike is a blast, gobs of power in a super light and flick-able package; this thing begs to go anywhere and go fast the entire time.
Plugs and magnecore plug wires
fresh oil change
brake fluid and clutch flush.
Title in hand
No Test rides without cash in hand
Would be interested in a trade for either a dump trailer or old VW dune buggy/beach buggy
