Could you share the bracket info please? Also I don't recognize the rear rack/support bars?

Rear rack is for top case support bracket.
I'm assuming the brackets are optional with bottle manufacturer? If not, any racing or off-roading supply would have these for fire extinguisher mounting.

I need to figure out something like this. I'm planning a roadtrip from Cali to Colorado and back this summer and while it usually works out that I'm ready for water and a stretch around the 140 mile mark it'll be good to have insurance so as not to find myself out of gas on a back country road in the middle of nowhere. Trick for me will be I have the Hypermotard and will travel with a rolltop bag strapped to the seat and a backpack or tnk bag only so I won't have any obvious mount points.

When I first started riding my HyperStrada I also worried about fuel when riding in remote area away from fuel. My fuel light would normally appear between 90 and 110 miles, depending on how I was riding.

On a recent 4 day ride in and around our California Sierra, I discovered a shocking reality! The Hyperstrada (probably Hypermotard as well?) can get MUCH better fuel economy if:
1. You slow down and do not constantly go wide open throttle for passing.
2. Go into Touring mode.

To my delight, I found that my fuel economy went from a low of 38 to 40 MPG up to 50 to 55 MPG just by backing off a bit. We were still cruising on highway at 75 mph and I still got this fantastic mileage. Note the altitude helps fuel economy!

But when passing a line of trucks I did not twist to wide open throttle to pass and I short shifted a bit, but still rode at fun pace through twisty roads.

I was able to ride until 150 miles until the fuel light finally came on. SHOCK!

At that point you still have 75 to 100 miles range left in the tank if you take it slow in touring mode. So perhaps 250 mile range? Not bad! Won't cross Australia but for most of USA, Canada and EU, should be adequate.

When I met Engineer Andrea Forni years ago at the first Multistrada intro, he was very keen to stress how economical modern Ducati's were becoming.
He was right ... and this little Testastretta ll is a GREAT example.

For carrying fuel ... if I really had to ... I am lucky to have a rear rack on my bike.
I would probably just buy a small 2 gallon (US) fuel container and strap it onto the rack.

From my experience in above post, I now have a better idea of this bikes true range.

Next up for me will be to RUN IT DRY to truly test the range. As I noted above, the range to fuel light varies wildly depending on use of throttle, riding aggressiveness and how often you rev to redline. This I have tested and am confident about results having now done several all day rides in variety of riding environments.

Next to test will be to test true range AFTER the light comes on until engine stops. (Of course I will have 2 gallon tank on board) With the extra two gallons on board that should extend range (guessing here) up to 300 to 350 miles.

Testing will provide true final range.
