I Ride: Hypermotard 2013
I recently traded my 2008 KTM Duke for a 2013 Hypermotard. I love the new bike. It has the right Italian temperament and rawness but still very stable because of the increased weight and low gravity. The only negative thing so far is the mechanical operated clutch. What's the point of that? It's not a big deal at all, but I still can't find any viable reason to make it mechanical.

Clutch aint the best. I find a couple mm's adjusted from stock setting is way more manageable. I recently had some service done and they adjusted clutch back to stock and I couldn't even ride it until I adjusted it back.

Hmmm. Ok. Right now it seems like the "grip point" is very far out, but since I'm the second owner I can't know if the level now is the stock setting. Wich way did you adjust it?

Surging throttle. Otherwise it's a perfect motorcycle. Some of the complaints I see here I think are silly. The front forks work fine for me, but I can see how some can complain about the lack of adjustability.

Quite agree. Let's be happy that all these complaints are just minor and some of them are just a preference of taste. Both Hypers are one of the best all-round bikes around, but still offering massive power vs/weight to be raw and playful.

Back at ya with what viable reason do they have for hydralic? I have had 6 bikes so far and none of them were hydralic clutches. In my experience the hydralic clutches are harder to pull than a cable clutch. Most Ducs hurt my hands after a while also the lever travel takes a weirdo path that I swear isn't on a flat plane. The clutch is so easy to pull on this bike its awesome! Yes the feel isn't the best but I haven't had much trouble with it so far (only had the bike for a week). Less stuff to go bad with a cable system too.

My main complaint is the suspension. Yes its fine for lite use and super slab riding but being so cheap its gunna suffer pretty quick when you start going hard. Oh and the low fuel light should come on at half a gallon left or so. It comes on so early its kinda annoying...

Still miss
1) gear indicator
2) A proper gastank to fill. One that has 16 litre to use, and not just a open hole to fill the gas in.
3) Suspention is so cheap that it alone make a great inspiring bike bad. (Even a cheap in price bike like Yamaha Mt-9 has better suspension)

I really don't see why they can't program a gear indicator in with a full digital display. Sure you need hardware to make that happen but I hate not having one.

I never understand why people want gear indicators? I thought it was a second nature for motorcyclists to be aware what gear they are using (like a subconscious counting or something). And when n doubt, look at the speed and revs, work it out (know your bike, djeez).
Oh, my biggest complaint, the flat spot around 4000-4500 rpm.
