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 Iíd 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.

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'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.

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?

I like the video that Ducati has for the new Hyper - even has Reuben Xaus in a cameo role !

2010 1100 evo

Just picked up a 2010 1100 EVO garage queen with 1200 miles on the odo.
I have been lusting for one of these for a few years. Just sold my 2008 Super Duke and this was for sale locally. I wanted to land one of these air cooled Desmo motors before they became a thing of the past.
Time will tell how long this will be in the stable but for now this thing is a riot.

to Hypermotard or not

Hello Guys, Help me out here.
I have been lusting after a Hypermotard for a couple of years now, and have spotted one for sale locally that is in good condition with low miles.

One side of my brain is saying: "buy the bike".
The other side is saying: "it is too impractical of a bike". Buy something more practical.

It does not have ABS brakes, does not accomodate luggage easily, and does not have a windscreen. These things are important to me. But, the Hypermotard is such a cool bike...

I see quite a few of these bikes that are 2-3 years old with 1000-2000 miles on them, which makes me suspect the owners did not find them too practical either, and did not ride them much.
What do you say, is this bike good for all around motorcycling?

Youíre probably asking the wrong group, Hyper owners & fans.
Luggage? Made my own rack. I donít camp so only need so much stuff & designed this rack to carry this expandable bag or even a small Givi hard bag. Donít want a windshield, donít need ABS.
This 2010 EVO SP has been great & is just about perfect for me.
You decide.

I wanted a Hypermotard for a long time and finally found a good used 796 in December. For me, the Hyper is an elemental motorcycle - a responsive engine and two sticky tires. The bike is practical in the sense that you can jump on it and do about anything that you want. It's light, responsive and fun to ride. The bike has personality; it is definitely not an appliance. When you get off the bike, you know that you've been riding a motorcycle. I only have one motorcycle and I'm happy that it's a Hypermotard.

There are aftermarket windshields available and Hepco Becker has a nice light rack and soft luggage. If you need ABS, luggage and a windshield, you might want to look at the new Hyperstrada. It may be the best of both worlds for you. Good Luck!
