Not surprising, really. The 300's and the 500's are all about efficiency and range, not power.
I was thinking more along the lines of just using it for a mix of commuting and casual trail/dirt roads. No need for speed. I have a Speed Triple RS at the moment so it would be totally different. Used to have a 800gs but it got too top-heavy for my old knees.
Y'all be careful now, hear? Scooters are way more fun than they should be. I suspect in some locations they are illegal as they are way more fun than most folks should be allowed to have.
I want Vespa for sooo long, but when I saw new Beverly (which I highly disliked), I might want a new Beverly now..
After 15 years of owning Japanese vanilla motorcycles, I’ve got a hankering for a Hypermotard 1100. I wouldn’t mind having a sexy kickass motorcycle for those “just for fun” rides.
Haven’t had a chance to throw a leg over one yet, but hopefully my 30” inseam doesn’t let me down.
Hopefully you don't mind stopping with one foot down, with your butt off to that side.
34" inseam, and the 2008 1100S I owned for 8 years was no problem for me. Definitely one I miss having.
Jumped on new one once and could not find pegs or ground….declared myself a DA at that very time. Made it ok but ……….
One where my feet will flat foot with no mods…..To old to fall down.
scooters are cool but need flat floor
Im becoming a Goldwing fan. The more I learn about this machine the more I want it.
Currently rocking with a 2018 BMW r1200rs, and a 2016 Triumph Speed Triple, but dreaming of switching up to this combo.
I'm waiting for the newest Valkyrie
Get a Monster instead.
The S2R was one of the best looking ones, IMHO.
Are we going to get the Honda 350??
I’ve browsed the classifieds a bit for Monsters too, seen some S2R’s and 1100’s for more appealing prices than Hypers. But I dunno, they just don’t seem to do as much visually/emotionally for me - which is basically 100% what this bike would be about for me. Plus I don’t know if I can do the Monster’s more aggressive riding position - I put a 3” taller handlebar on my 919 for more upright ergos.
My DR650 is kinda tall, but I manage on the street just fine since it’s pretty light. I had a Tiger 1050 for a quick minute that I ended up selling because it was too tall and top-heavy for my daily use. But that Tiger was probably 125-150 lbs heavier than a Hyper, so I might be ok. Who’s got one I can test ride?
Still a work in progress but 70 Triumph T100C handlebars, Andreani front cartridges, Nitron shocks, Lucas tail lamp, Mitas E07 tires and high level exhaust. Not a true single tracker but ridden like a 60’s street scrambler.
A slimmer tank, smaller headlight, and a skid plate would be nice. The seat, although infinitely more comfortable than the original, could be better styled for a scrambler. Almost everything is available on Webike. Lots of interchangeable parts for W650 and W800.
Wish I had the talent to build a Rickman type frame.
DCT all the way on THAT bike. it's just...…...right.
Slimmer tank? Get the 2001 tank pads! They're noticeably narrower.
Mine is a 2001!I have looked for slimmer badges.
Weird.....Blue\Silver is 2000, Green\Cream is 2001. Your tank pads appear to be 2000 vintage. Can't quite tell.
