What's your biggest complaint about the Hyperstrada?

I've had mine for the last 7 days and so far have put 200 miles on her. Clear it's a great bike! Just curious what you've noticed and what your biggest gripes are with it so far? For me, really just two things stand out at this point:

1. The display... wish it were full color and provided more info, more like the Panigale display or even better yet, like this MV Agusta display.



2. Seat height... with a 29" inseam, a 33.5" seat height doesn't inspire total confidence. It's not as bad as I thought and the bike is so well balanced it's easy to hold it on my tippy toes at a stop, but I still would really prefer being able to flat foot it. I'm going to give the low seat a try and then see if the local shoe repair place can build a 3/4" thicker sole for my riding boots. Those two things together should drop the seat height to 32", which should allow me to flat foot. Until I can flat foot it, I fear that it's always going to be that I like it and never that I love it. I think I'm learning my personal preference and that I need to be able to flat foot a bike in order to really love it and bond with it. I don't feel totally in control unless I can flat foot it would seem.

I wish it had a proper fuel gauge, if I could look at the dash and know how much I had to the nearest eighth of a tank this bike would be perfect in every single way!

Ooh and if the bags clamped and were water tight...

Crappy front forks, gear indicator, fuel gauge.

If it had a screen like that with the above added, I might have paid $499 more. I'm pretty surprised they didn't offer an SP-like package for '14 with top-o-the-line, fully adjustable suspension. Probably wouldn't move a lot of units as the low price point is probably what reeled a good portion of us in.

  1. Fuel gauge.
  2. Gear indicator.
  3. Automatic off signal. (I'm not sure how to mane this thing, sorry.)
Also.
  • Better tool kit.
  • Revised owner manual.

More of the same

Fuel gauge, gear indicator, waterproof givi like cases, the 'tall' windshield should come stock.

Sadly, the Hypers already have this, but the parameters are not useful.

Turn indicators are automatically reset by the instrument panel. After activating one of the two turn indicators, they can be deactivated using the reset button (4). If the turn indicator is not “reset" manually, the instrument panel will automatically switch it off after the motorcycle has traveled 0.3 miles (500 m) from the time the turn indicator was activated. The counter for the distance traveled for automatic deactivation is activated at speeds below 50 mph (80 km/h). If the calculation of the distance for automatic deactivation is activated and then the motorcycle exceeds a speed of 50 mph (80 km/h), the calculation is interrupted and will restart when the speed returns below the indicated threshold.

My biggest complaint about owning my Hyper SP is that I can't use it to its full potential in the congested streets of London.
