Hyperstrada or hypermotard

I saw both bikes on the Brussels motorshow. At this moment I try to sell my Monster M1100 from 2010 with 3111 km on it. When my bike is sold, I will place an order for a Hyperstrada or a Hypermotard with a lot of options. I hope ASAP!!!!!!!!

Problem at this moment: the misses don't like the ride on the Monster because it's not very comfortable. For me a Multistrada is to expensive because I do less than 4-5000km a year. I'm charmed by the new Hyperstrada but also by the new hypermotard.

The reason for my doubt are the colour combinations. I like the white one very much, but for me a Ducati must be red. On a red Hyperstrada the rear chassis is silver and I don't like that. On a red hypermotard it's dark grey on a red chassis which it's much more beautiful (for me).
I used the configurator and a red hypermotard with passenger grab handles, lower touring seat, carbon headlight fairing and engine guard kit is about 600 euro cheaper than a hyperstrada. But then you don't have the sidecases (745 euro) and no 2 12v plugs. So a lot of "big" problems

My dealer told me that the presentation will be end of march. I friend of my gives sales and a little bit of technical trainig for Ducati (also BMW and Ferrari) and he's in Bologna at this moment!!! Problem is that he won't give me the latest information or pictures

PS: sorry for my bad Englisch but I'm not used to write on English forums!

I Ride: was Monster soon Hyperstrada
Welcome gkmapv! your English is just fine. I was able to sell my Monster last fall. I lucked out, a friend of a friend wanted it so I didn't have to advertise it. Now it is just the waiting game for the Hyperstrada to show up at my dealer.

This is exactly the thinking that's happening with me as well: Hyerstrada or perhaps Hypermotard. I've already bought the 'strada, but I could change that for the 'motard if I like. If I do stick with the 'strada, I think I will unbolt the bag mounts entirely and just use them if I actually do go on a long, overnight, ride.

The only reason I'm not 100% sure is I really do prefer the colour options for the Hypermotard and I don't need half of the added features of the 'strada. What I do like better about the Hyperstrada for certain is the wider seat, grab bar [which for me is a place to put a small duffel bag], sump guard, longer mudguards and windscreen.

But hey, talk about a nice problem to have: choosing between these awesome bikes!!

that's also my opinion! I'm not a photoshop man but I would like to see the stickerset of the Hypermotard SP on a white hyperstrada. I think it will be much sportier like a Multistrada Pike Peaks.

The mean reason why I would buy a hyperstrada is the better seat en het grab bars for the misses. This evening a big discussion "I hope"

I have never liked the look of bags on motorcycles, yet many times I've needed something to carry my belongings. I usually use a tailbag for that. But for some reason, when I first saw pictures of the Hyperstrada, with the luggage attached, I thought it looked perfect. Most likely I will use a tailbag for around town stuff (gym, work) and take off the side bags, but for day/night trips I will use all three and know it won't affect the great looks of the bike IMO. Either way I'll still have a 450lb bike with 110hp!!!

btw: what does stickerset mean?

The hypermotard sp has basically the same fairings as the white hyperstrada but it has black and red stickers that gives it a more agressive look.. I think they would look nice on the strada
