What's new on the Ducati Hyperstrada?

The paint's barely dry on the new 821cc Hypermotard, but Ducati has already created a touring version. With its panniers, centrestand and tall screen, here's what makes the Hyperstrada different to the Hypermotard. ElectronicsLike the Hypermotard, there’s an eight-stage traction control system and three riding modes: Sport, Touring and Urban. Sport and Touring give you full power, but have differing levels...

So is it SMT990 or Hyperstrada

Oh heck , I`m starting to look outside the sports bike box and these 2 got me thinking .Is that 800 cc engine enough to zip over the channel or is the KTM no refinded enough ?

Hyperstrada

Checked one out and really disappointed. I'll wait for a Multistrada version.

990 SMT

Not for long journeys. Wind blast unacceptable, and engineering will cause problems.

Ducati have already done a touring version of the Hypermotard

It was the original Multistrada. If you check the tech specs, its the same frame and motor. The wheelbase on the Multi was a smidgen longer (presumably for better stability) and the suspension travel was slightly shorter (smoother ride) other than that you had a decent seat to sit on, a 20 litre fuel tank, a bit of fairing to hide behind and the ability to fit a pair of decent sized panniers. The original Multi's problem was that it was before its time.

Fishing for compliments

MCN will run any story on BMW or Ducati... Ducati changes a fuse, and there will be a two page spread on Ducati fuses... Same for BMW... These bikes are over priced and underwhelming...

Agree with these suggestions

I ride an SMT right now and the Hyperstada isn't even close  - the KTM is superior in every aspect, certainly on paper and I'd be surprised if anyone rides the two back to back & thought different.

I had a Mk1 Multistrada before the KTM and that was also an excellent bike, quite possibly better than the Hyperstada.  I haven't ridden the Hyperstrada yet but so far it looks like a farkled-up turd.

Fits my requirements

I've been looking for a middle weight bike that will be great fun on a short, fast blast on a Sunday morning whilst also being comfortable for a long weekend in Europe with a pillion. I don't want anything bigger than a 1000cc, but do want it to be a fun, great looking bike. I feel a test ride coming on :)
