Post First reviews call the Hyperstrada "the mini multi"

Do you consider the Hyperstrada to be a "mini multi"?

2013 Ducati Hyperstrada
11/16/2012

Shortly after its debut at the EICMA in Milan, Ducati's new Hyperstrada earned a nickname - the mini multi.

One quick glance at the 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada, and it's easy to see why. This machine is actually quite different from the Multistrada, though.

Ducati calls the model a "cross-over" between a motard and touring machine. The Bologna-based manufacturer began by stuffing the Hypermotard-based machine with brand new, 821cc Testastretta 11-degree engine that produces 110 horsepower. And it's service friendly, also, the new L-Twin needing valve checks every 18,600 miles.

In addition to a new engine, the Hyperstrada lineup includes the Ducati Safety Package of three-level ABS, eight-level Ducati Traction Control, and integrated Riding Modes.

Having the "strada" adage in the name, which means "road" in Italian, the Hyperstrada arrives with 50 liters of detachable luggage, with an optional 31-liter top case. For road use, the Hyperstrada also features taller handelbars, a touring screen, a more comfortable seat and passenger grab handles.

Here is an excerpt from the initial review by Motorcycle-USA:

Quote:
Hyperstrada
The $13,295 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada is a new direction for the Hypermotard, offering a crossover between the worlds of motard and touring. Decked-out with 50 liters of side luggage, a center stand and a touring windscreen, the Strada model looks to be an excellent option for Multistrada 1200 fans that find the power, size or price tag intimidating. The rider compartment of the Hyperstrada has been tailored for long journeys with 20mm taller handlebars, a wider and thicker seat and passenger grab handles. Two 12V auxiliary power outlets provide power for GPS units and heated vests. The suspension is also revived for touring duty with a shorter 5.9-inch stroke at both ends from the KYB fork and Sachs shock. Panigale-style 10-spoke wheels come wrapped with Pirelli Scorpion Trail tires to complete the package that weighs in at 399 pounds.

Agreed. That's an abomination and seriously irresponsible 'journalism' to call the Hyperstrada a mini-multi. Hopefully someone will have the cajones to write an honest review of this bike in the near future.

I absolutely do not consider it to be a mini-multi. Calling it that takes away from the whole concept of this bike: a Hypermotard with some added creature comforts and the capacity, via bags, to extend the ride. I think of the bike as being first and foremost a Hypermotard.

...and no disrespect for the Multi, by the way. It's a *phenomenal* bike!!

I agree, see it as a modified motard not a down sized multi.

Id like to ride both of them. But the smaller one seems more appealing for riding off pavement with.
