I think I'm crazy I just switched my deposit from a 1098 standard (I was 4th on the list, since dec 1) to a Hypermotard S. I currently have a 748s and I want to try something different, the hypermotard looks like it would be so much fun on the street. I have raced supermotard and loved it. The idea of having a hypermotard on the street just sounds great. Plus I ride about a 100 miles a day. It might be nice to be upright. I hope I just did not do anything stupid :bash:

The Hypermotard does look like a lot of fun too. The biggest knock on the Hypermotard is the small fuel tank (11.5 liters =~ 3 gallons).

Hey Mike, what's up? I saw you at the store on Saturday but was a bit busy getting ready for the ride home in 40 mph winds
!!

Any how, Monkeybutt I don't think you will regret that decision at all. The Hypermotard looks like sooo much fun. I want one too!

That's so weird; I was talking to another Ducatisti - he owns a SS900 - and we were talking about my wait for the 1098 and he said he'd rather get a Hypermotard.

It does look like a lot of fun.

The hyper appears to be a fun motorcycle for the street, I have owned many superbikes over the years and I'm looking for something different a new expierence in my motorcycle pedigree. I have been waiting so long for 1098 that I just lost my luster for it, dont get me wrong the 1098 is a beautiful amazing piece of machinery, but I'm in need for a change and the hyper has peaked my interest for that change. I have raced many forms of motorcycles (superbike, dirt tracker, speedway) over the years and the hyper seems to combine those styles of racing for me. I'm stoked.

My brother went from his 749S to a new Aprilia sxv550, it was wild but he hated it, I rode it and it felt so unstable and high after a sports bike, maybe after a while you get used to it but it was enough to put me off them !
Plus the tank range was pathetic, something like 60 miles max !!!!!
It lasted 3 months and it is now gone.
The Hyper looks great but I hope you do not regret it.

Monkey Butt ---
Good on you! I've been checking out the KTM Super Duke. Dealer keeps trying to talk me into a test ride. I keep saying no, cuz I'm pretty sure I'd buy it.

Since you've already got a great Superbike in the 748s, would almost be duplicative to get another one.

Check out the vid and article on the Hypermotard at http://www.raptorsandrockets.com/news.html

When do you pick it up??
