Valve Servicing with this interval is more or less standard, but I see the weak (and cost intensive) piont of the Ducati engine in the interval of the cam belt replacement
which was - to my knowledge - in the past every 9375 miles or 2 years max.

Any improvements on that known yet?

But the belts are easy to replace so what is the problem?

Just a question of invenstment of - here in Europe - up to $700,- every 9000 miles (1-1,5 years).

But other question: the belts will now be replaced at 18.700 miles with the valve check?
Yes? Well done Ducati! :-)

No missunderstanding, this bike is the ultimative & effortable versatile bike I was waiting for !

I wouldn't say Ducati belts are 'easy' to replace; in fact they're pretty difficult for most people with no mechanical experience. They really should be done by a Ducati Certified tech with the appropriate specialized tools for cam timing or at least someone who's done them several times previously and knows how to set up the timing manually. I do my own on my old Monster but that's because I bought the bike for $2k and it's about 14 years out of warranty so I'll risk blowing up my motor to get the experience.
Valve checks at 18.6k are not standard, it's a jump from every 7500 miles on the current model! Sure the other 11-degree motors are there now, but those are relatively recent developments as well. You can stretch belts to 15k or 2-3 years, so as long as you're putting at least 5k miles/year on the Hyperstrada, just have valves and belts done together along with the rest of the major service (oil, brake fluid [no clutch fluid on this one!], coolant[also new], spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, etc) somewhere between 15 & 18k miles. That's a really affordable Ducati to own.

Cam/Timing Beltzzzzzzzz

I am glad someone pointed that interval out--I had not looked over the maintenance intervals in the new Hypers because I was so excited about the 18K mile valve check/adjust. I am not a good wrencher. I can do simple things like check valve clearance on a typical shim/bucket valve train but have yet to pull a cam and actually adjust anything. I have been lucky, all of my different bikes to date have not required valve adjustment.

The Ducati system intimidates me!
I ride a lot. I have logged about 110000 miles in the last 2.5 years so I have to do as much of my own maintenance as I can. Otherwise I would be broke if I paid a Ducati service department!!

I need to mull over my potential purchase of this machine some more it would seem......

I like to do my own maintenance, so if I'm lucky enough to get the HyperStrada and keep it a while, I will be posting up how hard it is to change belts and check valves. Hopefully by the time I get ready someone else has tried and shared some help.

The 696 I have adjusted the valves, kinda fiddly in that you need to get into tight places and support the valve while putting the keepers on and such. But that is 2 valves and I have a book, and lots of help in notes on the model by "L. T. Snyder".

This is a new engine, so no one has experience out there, unless it is very similar to the other 11 degree jobs.
