Does anyone here actually own a Hyperstrada?

This bike is growing on me. I'd love to hear from those that have actually owned for a while, what it's like to live with.

There's a thread dedicated to this bike here:

Seems like there are a couple of owners there

Nobody owns one. No one will pay $14000 for a bike with no fuel gauge. Seriously...I did test ride one recently. Nice bike. But I didn't think it was worth that kind of price tag.

There is another thread about the bike, but only one or two people seem to have actually purchased one. I did a test ride and really liked it. It is more planted and far less twitchy, than it's predecessor. But I want some real world, first hand, impressions

I own a 2013. 8000 miles so far and no complaints. Luggage, centerstand, windscreen, ABS with traction control. More refined engine/fueling than my 796. Upright seating.

Works for me!

Same here, except I'm maybe at 7,000 miles. The only serious complaints I have are I'd like to get the seat reshaped, and the luggage shape makes it a little less useful than the size would suggest.
