Rode the new Hypermotard SP yesterday. It's effortless to ride fast, sort of like power steering in car. The ABS, traction control and slipper clutch are fantastic. Tried the ABS on some sandy gravel. Start to turn, grab the brakes, hard, and...... just stop, sheez. Feels like it's 150 lbs lighter too. I want! The ride-by-wire throttle gonna take some getting used to. Feels like something off a vacuum cleaner or something. Gotta be the ultimate Moto-Tour weapon. Still love the S4 motor though. No fiddly emission, no catalytic, or pulling strings behind the curtain nonsense. Just bags of smooth torque everywhere. But, my S4 feels like a SLED in comparison.
