New Hyper 950

Hmm...

Not sure I'm sold on the styling. But the dash looks pretty neat.

Doesn't look like too much of a change really... the ergos and performance numbers are very much the same. The trellis frame looks cool, and new traction control system is awesome.

Underseat exhaust? Really? Never owned a bike with pipes run under the butt, but everything I've read says cons outweigh pros. I can't imagine what 2 stock collectors weigh vs a single titanium can.

Wish they'd stop dicking around and put the 1260 in it. The 939-950 have not been a breakthrough over 821.

The amount of extra piping for the undertail exhaust looks odd. I kinda like the trellis under the seat and yeah, that dash looks nice. I also think I read that the 950 despite having roughly the same specs runs a bit better than the 939. Not enough of a change to make me sad about my SP though.

Pretty confident that pipe, gearing, tuner, high flow filter and weight savings would nose ahead of a stock 950. Not that I wouldn't want more engine, I was just shocked at the performance #'s that 939's advertised. With 821, I was impressed. Figured an extra 100+ cc's would be equally impressive.

Think of the performance jump between 600 and 750 sport I-4's. If this is all because of Euro 4 compliance...damn shame.

Aren't they pushing Euro 5 yet?

Edit: N/M, that isn't until 2020

They say even with the same seat height it feel 2 inches lower. I bet they got lots of complaints with the 34.2 and 35 in the SP. We,ll see.
