I see the HEIDENAU K60 SCOUT tires in a 17" a little more sporty than the TCK80s that have yet to hit the states, albeit just for the rear.

Interesting possibility. However they have the front but not rear tire (The Hyper rear tire is 180/55/17)

Why doesn't anyone lace up wire wheels for this? Does it have to do with the rotors/calipers, and/or lack of suspension?
It seems that with a 19/17 set of knobbies, this thing would be [even more] badass.

I have asked this question on several forums and the general response for the street orientated crowd is why would you want to? wire wheels are heaver and old school, not nearly as cool as the cast/forged ones. I don’t care about the weight saving I want a 19” front and an 18” rear for more ADV appropriate tires! I spoke with Brett at Belleview Ducati about this subject and he indicated that they had talked about swopping wheel sizes for their Hyper Explorer but determined it was cost prohibitive for the 2 to 300 units they might sell, also he indicated there is a stock hub off of a GT1000 I believe is he said but that can’t be right anyway there is something in current production that will fit on the front. I have asked Woody this very question and am waiting on a response. There is a company in France here is the link http://www.krax-moto.com/16914-jantes-kineo-a-rayons-hypermotard-1100-s-ducati.html that makes wire wheels in stock sizes and they are very proud of them .

The search continues.

I'm with Jimo. I'd love to see a MS796 to go head-to-head with the Tiger 800. Put at 19" front wheel on it.... basically, it would be an updated version of the Grand Canyon. And keep it simpler than the MS1200 to keep the cost down.

Finally, someone agrees with me.

the Hypermotards are fantastic canyon carving bikes, no doubt, and the Bellevue Ducati bits look well made. i was a past owner of a HYM which had the CA Cycleworks tank on it and it performed as promised and the handling dynamics didn't seem all that much changed when full. as for the DP soft luggage, it absolutely looks the part, but the fit/construction leaves a bit to be desired, especially in the area of mounting.

i think the HYM Explorer concept is a good one, especially for on asphalt travel.

nice job, Bellevue!

This is the response I received from Woodies.....

"Hi Jerry,
Thanks for contacting us for your wheel needs.
I have had a couple guys ask about hubs for the Ducati's, I do have a customer who is doing a conversion on the 1000 Multistrada, which the rear hub will be easy to make but will be 500 ea!
The front we will be able to use our Superlite hub on the 1000 with either BMW, oem or ktm rotor's. I don't know about the 1200 I haven't had a set of wheels here yet?
let us know what you would like to do, a set usually costs around 2500 for a set without rotor's.
thanks zach"

We had no issues with the cone filters, though the lower one is a bit close to the water line for a water crossing I took the bike through. Overall, the HM seemed to breath a bit easier with the cones, rather than them being a detriment.

I thought that I'd bring this thread back to the top and ask if anyone owns or has ridden the Hyper Explorer 796? I'm still interested in the concept - it would be great to know how the bike actualy performs. Thanks!
