Which is not enough, should have had at least 5 USG....

Maybe California Cycle Works will find a way to inlarge that like they did for the air cooled Hyper...

Strada fuel tank size

The one thing that I didn't like about my Hyper 1100S was the gas tank capacity. I would run out at under 100 miles. Not good. I now have the California Cycle Works tank and can ride 200 miles plus, no worries. I know the new Strada has a smaller, more efficient engine, so should get better milage than my 1100. I look forward to some road tests that state how far we can get on 4.2 gallons. DucDoc2

As long as I can get ~150 per tank, I will be happy.

Um forget about fuel capacity and mileage, how about making a tank that doesn't expand?

Did the old hyper tank expand? What kind of problems did that cause? I remember reading in some old mx magazines they would expand tanks on purpose to increase capacity . Theyd pour boiling water in the tank to soften the material. Then dump it and apply a few psi until it cooled.

No I think what he is talking about is the oxygenated fuels used in some parts of the US to improve air quality effects some plastics causing them to expand making reinstallation problematic and in some cases causing the tanks to leak.

Right. Ducati is making such awesome bikes, I feel like they should be above this. Go back to metal tanks like Triumph has so people can enjoy their Duc for as long as they please without having to worry about such a bogus flaw.
