Any update on this zippy49?

I will ask them at the bike show this Saturday. I'd rather do it in person; I expect the owner to be there.

Quick update:

First, the show was packed. Best crowd in many years. The Ducati stand had a cutaway of the Monster engine, and the new clutch parts were plainly visible. Apparently the only parts changed were the two thin rings and the most inboard friction plate. The narrowed plate and ring inside of it are visible in the pic. The dealer I spoke to - Beverly Hills Ducati - agreed that the plates were only available as a set, but offered to contact DNA and let me know what they said about a kit. I will call him on Tuesday. And there is always Barnett.

I spent most of the time sitting on little bikes, various 300s on up. The winners were the little KTMs and the Yamaha FZ-07. The cutaways of Yamaha's engines - R1, FZ-09, FZ-07, and YZF450 were fascinating. The 07's engine is unbelievably compact; the counterbalancer bobweights actually go between the flywheels, missing the big ends.

Hey Zippy! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this up. Really appreciate it. Glad you enjoyed the show, wish I could have made it.

Once you get news from your dealer about the kit, please let me know. If he's able to make something work, I'll gladly PayPal you funds for the kit from your dealer + shipping to NorCal.

Thank you again Zippy!

update?

Hi Zippy any update on this?

I test rode a hyperstrada today and liked it but am concerned about some issues like this.

Seems like a no-brainer for them to update the hyper line with the fixes, it's a shame if they have no done so and makes me wonder if they are not really supporting this line going forward.

I think the 821 HS and the HMs are fantastic bikes. Most of us don't have serious problems and real problems are / already have been addressed with software updates and more. Personally I have had no mechanical or technical issues. I also happen to like the clutch. I switched to other levers, but that was a personal preference only. I love this 821 motor..!

Right on! I'm thinking of going with the base model so I can upgrade the suspension to my liking. I have to say I had a blast on the test ride.

Yeah, I would have seriously considered it knowing how I planned to use the bike. Even more confusing is why instead of offering an "SP" version with upgraded suspension, they just went softer with all low version.

I filled out a couple owner surveys and certainly commented on the non-adjustable front suspension each time.
