As previously briefly appearing in the forum here a little while back, it appears there will be a HyperMotard 796. At that time there was nothing out there via google but one mysterious ducati.com forum thread. Now there is a plethora of stuff, mostly all repeating the following info:

I'll bet one of our local dealers would take a deposit on one :rolleyes:

Until Ducati NA gives us a confirmation on something like this it would simply be a speculative, first right of refusal sort of deposit... a pecking order if you would :)

I would think that any dealer who would not accept money from a customer would just be silly, speculative or not!

BTW, there is no photo evidence seen to date so still speculative IMO

we will take a deposit on anything, heck we will take a deposit on a 2013 1598s w/traction control,abs, and possibly red in color.

Just saying... :cool2:

A comment from Hell for Leather's article on the Aperta (also vapor ride) and linked from their HM 795 article:


It's actually quite impressive that we don't have an answer to all these questions yet, dealers were shown the bike last summer and Ducati is typically more leaky than this. According to some potential customers, those same dealers are still prepared to currently take deposits on the bike and are even forecasting deliveries late this year, indicating that the model could be launched earlier than the EICMA show in November.

I was not shown anything.. there was a third "World Dealer Conference" at EICMA last year but few of us went and if there was something as rumored "shown to the dealers" then they indeed have been silent..
other the than much rumored and pretty much confirmed new Multi which we have still not seen an official photo of ??

This is a pretty reliable source suggesting an official release next week:
