I just used Tom Tom Go on a Samsung waterproof Edge to ride across the country. I used the Tom Tom offline maps and the thing worked great with or without data coverage.

New to the forum, new do Ducatis!



As the thread title states, I was pretty interested and sold on getting the new 2017 Multistrada. I had done an excessive amount of research online for a couple of weeks and thought I had my mind made up. So I made my way to the local Ducati dealer here in Chicago. When I walked in they had one sitting pretty much right as you walked in the door.



First Thoughts - Holy Hell, that bike is A LOT bigger than I expected. I quickly questioned my Internet Decision and started walking around the bike to take in just how big it was. It was too big for me. I was bummed as I was pretty much dead set on getting one.



After a bit a sales person freed up and came to talk to me. I voiced my issues with the Multistrada and my disappointment on how much bigger it was than I'd thought. He asked me if I'd considered the Hyperstrada? I said I wasn't even aware of the model? Well it just so happened that they had a leftover 2016 with Three miles on it. I went and looked at it and boy, this was way closer to the type/size of motorcycle that I was looking for being in an urban environment and no intentions of cross country rides.



Long story (not so) short....I ended up getting the bike for what I think is a fair price. I've had it for Seven days and have put 113 miles on it so far. I really am enjoying this bike a lot.



I have questions though. Where is a good place to go and look for accessories for this? What I'm specifically interested in is some sort of mount for my iPhone 7 so I can use GPS. As you all know the motorcycle has the Two 12V outlets on it for charging and adding electronics. When I opened the cover I noticed that they are significantly smaller than the American 12V Cigarette Outlets. So is the best/only way to do this to get the DIN12v to US Cigarette adapters I see online?



Any and All help/recommendations are greatly appreciated.



I would post a picture, but it currently as stock as can be and you all know what the Hyperstradas look like.



Thanks in advance!

I have a powerlet to USB adapter in the 12v socket by the engine. I ran a dark grey braided lightning cable under the tank and secured it near the bars. I have my iPhone 6 plus in a ram X Grip mount (the large one) near the left hand grip. I use the phone to run Waze and stream audio to my helmet. Works perfectly and doesn't obscure the dash at all. It's super secure and has seen plenty of triple digit speeds without moving at all. If I want the mount off it's simple and nearly invisible. I leave the cable and adapter in at all times, but they are barely noticeable.

I never knew it was called a powerlet! Thanks for that. A quick search for that and there are more options than I'll ever need.

Thanks!

Quickie.

I've searched and can't really find anything that states what the redline rpm is for this motor.

I've been able to find that it makes its peak horsepower at 9000 RPMs. Peak torque at 7500 RPMs. But I don't see anywhere, and I have not had the bike over 6000 RPMs yet so I'm just curious. What is the redline and this 939 motor once it's broken in ?

i have a 939 but do not know the redline.
but, it does not turn as fast and free over 9000 as my 821 did. it seems that changing gears before 10000 is more efficient.

I Ride: 2016 Hyperstrada
So I've had the bike for a little over a month now and have just under 600 miles on it. On two separate occasions I believe I have heard and felt the front forks bottoming out. Both times this happened with fairly aggressive bumps in the road. First time it was with my wife on the back going over a manhole that had caved a bit. Second time I was alone and there was road paving going on and the transition was a good size lip. Has anyone else had this issue?

I'm 230lbs and wife is 130lbs.

I'm thinking of getting the Andreani Fork Cartridges in the below link. Anyone have any experience with these or even just upgrading the stock front suspension?

I haven't experienced anything like you mentioned but I also haven't pushed my Hyper too hard yet and I always ride solo. I was looking into upgrading the forks but so far I've found them to be just fine for the riding I do. Although I weigh around 190 and don't push too hard when I ride. There is a thread stickied in the mechanical and technical section about suspension...

I bought this phone mount and it's pretty bad ass. I can't help but get nervous looking at my new Samsung Galaxy S8 plus wobbling ever so much.

I'm so glad you bought this bike! I bought mine on a whim. I hadn't even ridden one yet. Something DREW me to it. I own 9 bikes and have had many over my life. This is bike is more fun than any. Period.

I'm going to post a question on the forum but maybe there is an answer here: Duringa hard and fast turn and under acceleration it almost feels like the clutch slips for a millisecond almost by design by the traction control? Anybody know what I'm talking about? I'm speaking of a turn where I'm doing 60 or so.

Dunno for sure as I've never noticed it, but I'm far from someone who can push this bike to it's limits, but, if it was TC you'd see a light on the dash (assuming you have time to look at the dash in a corner)

I'm very impressed with my Andreani equipped forks on my Strada. I rode a new, stock 'Strada ... NO COMPARISON to my bike.

I'm not sure what fork springs are in my bike, might be heavier than stock.
I would look to see what Andreani recommend. Sometimes with fork cartridge systems you do not need heavier springs, sometimes you do.

i'm about 200 lbs. and I have never bottomed out ... even OFF ROAD! So could be previous owner of my bike upgraded springs??

Overall the front end is one of the best I've ridden (over 40 bikes!) My rear shock was reworked as well so overall, a magic carpet ride on my bike. Very nice indeed. It's the whole reason I bought the bike. We have lots of beat up, bumpy roads around here. (NorCal) the Strada eats them up!
