The basic options are:
1. Ohlins cartridges at roughly $1500 plus installation
2. Andreani cartridges at roughly $900 plus installation
3. Gold valve plus springs and custom setup from Racetech for $500 plus shipping to SoCal
4. Spring preload adjustment and oil change (cheap).

All of the above except #4 require some machine work. The cost is included in #3. I can vouch for the effectiveness of Racetech's setup, and don't need adjustments now that it's right. Some folks have had #4 done, but the stock springs are still too soft for most riders. And I have no idea what spring rate the cartridge kits offer, hopefully they allow a choice.

Also, the Strada has a better rear shock than the stock Hyper. The hydraulic preload adjustment is very handy when carrying a passenger.
Hi, Íhlins cartridges? Where, please? Do you have a link?

I Ride: '12 R6 & Hyperstrada
I debated the same thing, the SP vs. the HS and decided to go with the HS. I'm 6'0" and 183lbs. I've commuted on the HS, gone on a couple of somewhat lengthy rides, and did a track day on the HS last Saturday using Ducati MPLS' demo HS. On the track the suspension is noticeable but still fine and TONS of fun. Outside of the track, I've never felt the suspension wasn't adequate enough for my tastes. If you look at the price as well, you get a lot of extras with the HS.

IMHO, I would buy the SP then add the luggage and outlets if that's what your after. Strada suspension is not that great. I frequently drag hard parts, first the centerstand, removed it for a week of spirited riding in the NC mountains. Still drug the shifter, brake, and foot pegs. Looking into options at this time.

I Ride: 2014 Hypermotard SP
In the end, for me it came down to wanting to get on a track and push myself rather than take log rides. I don't think I will ever put panniers on the SP. I love riding this bike rolling in and out of the throttle, but it I don't think the SP is for cruising really, just my humble opinion ��

I'm thinking my next Duc will be the Multi. I could setup the SP for track days, leave it that way, and ride the multi on longer rides.

I live in an area where there are 6 tracks close bye and the sales manager at the Ducati shop does track days all the time. He offered to take me out and 'show me the ropes'. Should be a load of fun, just have to get a few more miles under my belt and a set of leathers.

I think the strada would have been my choice if commuting and touring were my primary concerns. Previous threads have mentioned this, and I agree, the strada's suspension is sufficient for street riding.

I am still looking for where I saw the part number. It's possible that I confused them with the Multi cartridges as Ohlins does not seem to list them for the Strada. It's a 25mm cartridge, they make them for other bikes.

Something of note that wasn't mentioned: The HyperStrada has a higher output alternator, which helps power those two sockets for heated gear and any other electrical doo-dads one might add, like lighting and whatnot. I used my front outlet to power my GoPro and iPhone for continous video during a ride.

Nurse Daddy where do you have your go-pro? Helmet or bike? I have not found a good spot on the bars - thinking I need an extension mount to lift it up a bit
