What Year Did Hyperstrada Suspension Get Lowered?

I'm the past owner of a 2013 Hyperstrada and am looking to get another. I remember that at some point in time, the Hyperstrada Suspension decreased from 5.9" front and back to 5.1", effectively making the standard version similar to the lowered version offered previously. Does anyone know what year this change occured?

Thanks!

Pretty sure it was the 2015 lineup that started the all lowered models. If you search hard enough we covered it exhaustively years back.

If it's any help I have 2016, HS 939 ex Japan which is a low version. Found out because the chain setting measurements is different from standard.

In 2013 there were already two seat heights. At some point all Hyperstradas were low.

2013:

You can download Owners Manuals from Ducati to track the specifications.

I think it was 2015 where all Hyperstradas were low. The Hypermotards were the height of the tall Hyperstrada. The SP even taller.

If you want a newer tall Hyper, get the Hypermotard and add the Strada parts which interest you most.

I've been told you can tell by the sticker on the swingarm whether it's regular or low if you're trying to identify one in person.

The chain tension setting is different between standard & factory lowered bikes. On 939 HS standard is 60 to 62mm on a lowered it's 54 to 56mm.

So if I have a 2013 Hyperstrada, is that the taller seat height? Or was there a low ht option back then also?
