Smile HS multiuse Bike

With 7k miles and almost a year in my HS the bike gets better every day. I commute to work, saturday trips up to 200 miles in the mountains lots of curves, some off road and a couple of 3 to 4 days trips many hours in the bike, using the pannies as well.
Not a single issue. Lots of power, great handling, perfect size (I,m 5.7 ) very light.
This week I,m going to test drive the MS 950 just to be sure that I made a great choice with the HS.

I have the HS 939 model 2016 . It was the last HS in my city, after that Ducati only sell the Multistrada 950 and Hypermotards, I don,t know if you can order an HS made out of one Hypermotard.

I Ride: '13 Hyperstrada
If you love your Hyper, and also because it's a Ducati, beware that you may love any Ducati that you ride. I haven't ridden the 950 because I know when I get a Multi it'll be a 1200. I've ridden the standard and the Enduro Multis and they're phenomenal, but way way bigger. Still nimble and agile but a much larger bike which I could only see useful for Grand Touring. Ive ridden the Streetfighters, 848 and 1098, uncomfortable, but to me the sexiest Ducati of all time, Streetfighter S. I've ridden the Monster 1200, an amazing beast. Then Monster 821, also very good, but 50 HP less than the 1200, will be my next bike. Oh yeah, my buddy's Panigale 959, awesome. And the Diavel, not my cup of tea aesthetically, but the cooolest feeling of all, just like you were James Dean incarnate. However, nothing matches the Hyper for an all arounder. Enjoy! Let's see a pic.

I agree that Ducatis are generally beautiful bikes. That said I personally think the Multi 950 sacrifices a lot of the character of the hyper for moderate increases in comfort along with a notable weight penalty.

The thing I like about the hyper(in my case motard) that it's relatively light, plenty powerful, you sit on it, not in it and it somehow manages to be fun on long ride as well as weekend warrior rides.

Just came from test drive the MS 950 . My opinión

Much heavier , I guess 50 pounds
Smooth at lov revs.
HS much powerful at high revs, I guess because the weight.
HS much nimble.

Mi choice ....... Hyperstrada
