Congratulations and welcome to the club!Caved and ordered a Ducati Hypermotard 821 today
A bit of attention to detail, a paint job and the new SC exhaust and you could transform your Hypermotard into this...
Shock/Forks can come at a later date.

Only problem you won't be able to fit the Ducati Luggage. You would have the option for the lower mounted pipe keeping inline with the touring biased Hypermotard.
I like the thought of getting the base Hypermotard and making a project out of it to produce something like the above, hmmmm.....

Phil, remember how you got me to 'run in' your brand spanking new CRF?
Well ……….. :RE
I know its a small point.. But as they have shown both red framed and greyish framed bikes..
Did they know what the delivery bikes would be ??
If I'm not mistaken the Motard is red and the Strada is grey. Really hoping the Motard is red for my plans.
Hoping I like it
Lovely bike phil.you need to get on this site and have a good read about everything hypermotard.cheers Greg

Great Bike there Phil, you have chosen well. We are all very envious.
Will do, thanks for the link Greg (lovin this bike, will do a write up when I get back, it's ready for its 1, 000 km oil change service already).
Keen to hear your views on this as after chucking the trusty old DRZ sm around for a while now I'm looking at sticking the big wheels and knobblies back on the DRZ and getting a bigger bike for the road and this may be the one to go for.
Would be interested in what you think Phil.
I'm loving it but I have nothing to compare it to, never had a bike with that much power. Love the handling, the suspension, and the general craziness.
Just put in a few orders of stuff for mine.
Same tank bag and engine guard from the proitalia store.
And R&G crash protection stuff from the R&G website.
They yanked my box at customs at CNX airport. .... Roger-ed me for 5,000 bht
I know the sickness, just got two sets of forged alloy Marchesini rims delivered….Aftermarket accessories trickling out now for this new model, but no stock in Thailand, these were ordered from the USA.
black oil film on the brake rotor, looks like the fling off of excess chain oil ends up on the rear brake rotor, obviously reducing the performance of the rear brake.

That sounds strange, MTS has a single side swing arm as well and never had an issue with chain lube on the rear brake disc.
Using MOTUL C5 Chain Paste for the Ducati MTS: C5 Chain Paste - Motul
ps: never had an issue with chain lube fling off on the brake disc with the Aussie Ducati HM-EvoSP I use frequently in Sydney….
Managed to get some rear sliders, no need to buy a single sided lift now
Does the new HM model has a centre stand or how do you remove the rear wheel?
Had the same Speedymoto rear axle sliders for two years installed on my MTS, switching over to a Rizoma kit soon as I plan to do some service + maintenance work on the MTS during the upcoming CNY national holidays.
Same as MTS-PP, centre stands is add on, easy to remove but leave mine on most of the times as quite handy for rear tyre puncture repairs.Butch, there's an aftermarket center stand, not as standard. On the road would need a car jack to get the rear wheel off.
