Is the tank any bigger than the HY1100?

I'm glad the rumors of a non-single sided swingarm didn't turn out to be true. This looks great!:thumbup::happy44:

no capacity listed yet, should get a bit better mileage than a 1100 plus it is 27lbs lighter!

The light weight sounds great.
I have not ridden a Hyper at all yet (maybe better for my wallet).
I like them except for the front proboscis.
I'd like to mod one so it has a 'normal' front fender and ditch the nose.
(along with all the other projects I'd like to do).

I wonder if the large fuel tank for the 1100 will fit.

This looks like a great alternative to the old baby multi's. Lesser cost, more efficient, presumably less expensive maintenance, still maintaining high fun factor.

The Roland Sands Hyper removed the beak and put a traditional fender on and it looks really cool. (along with the rest of his mods).

Hopefully the 796 comes in around $8000 like the 696, if it does I think alot of these will sell.

2010 M696 is $8999 so the new HYM796 is $1000 more.
Back when we had both a 620Monster and the little MTS it was $2000 more than the Monster.

the multi/monster price difference is more understandable given the extra bodywork of the multi, but less obvious with the Hyper. hopefully it's fun factor will sell it.

WTF? That thing looks way cooler than the 1100.

how about the addition of the Single sided swingarm, more displacement, HP and torque?

I cant wait for the test rides... Dave how many are you getting initally?? The only thing that would piss on my parade is if my job.... I should get a raise soon though... WHat is the fuel capacity??

all the answers to all the questions are yet to be made public. I would assume at least the same size tank as the 1100 with a bit better mileage.. We have not gotten to place our orders yet but I would expect right off the bat to see a demo and one or to to sell.. If we have some pre sold Ducati will fill those orders first..

DUCATI ANNOUNCES THE 2010 HYPERMOTARD 796

The newest member of the Hypermotard family arrives with an all-new engine and a lightweight chassis.

Cupertino, Calif. (23 September 2009) Ė Ducati North America is delighted to introduce the newest model in its successful Hypermotard family; the Hypermotard 796.

A brand new model for 2010, the Hypermotard 796 incorporates many new features requested by Ducatisti worldwide; striking color selections, lighter weight, lower price point, lower seat height, and the inclusion of a super-light action APTC clutch. Whether it's dicing through the daily commute or attacking the open roads, the 796 perfectly balances Ducatiís unrivalled twin-cylinder power and sportbike heredity with the lightweight and minimalist Supermotard concept.

The Hypermotard 796ís engine is a brand new powerplant; air-cooled with 2 valves per cylinder as per Ducati tradition. Rated at 81hp and 56 lb/ft of torque, the engine promises to deliver an exhilarating ride without compromising the smooth tractability found in Ducatiís other L-Twin engines.

Continued chassis development to the Hypermotard includes redesigned top and bottom fork clamps, and an improved frame layout which eliminates almost all of the forged elements used previously on the 1100. This adds up to an agile, lightweight, 368 pound package that is guaranteed to attack corners.

The Hypermotard 796 will be available at authorized Ducati showrooms beginning in December 2009. Color selections will include Ducati red, matte black, and matte white. MSRP for the Hypermotard 796 will be $9,995, joining the Monster 696 in Ducatiís sub- $10,000 price bracket; a bargain for the handmade Italian motorcycle.

The first public showing of the Hypermotard 796 will be at Milanís EICMA international motorcycle show. Full information on the entire range of Ducati motorcycles can be found at www.ducatiusa.com.

I was actually hoping for something a little lighter yet, ala KTM 690 at 305lbs dry. Hmmmmm. Will have to test ride when it is available. I am really glad they sprung for the SSSA. Red frame/black bodywork would have been almost too much to resist though :cool2:

Just like the 696 bodywork color change will be E-Z!!

I have the MTS 620 and use it exclusively for sport touring. I think I could like the Hyper 796 with termiís and the big fuel tank.

I would have liked the weight to be around 20-30 lbs lower. The brakes are cool and will flick you into the Puget Sound with one finger?

I think 2012 is when the emissions requirements refresh in Europe which will drive new models, so in the next couple of years Iíll be looking at the baby Hyper or the KTM Duke 690R (or something else??). Iím leaning towards the KTM since its +41 lb lighter and already has top shelf adjustable suspension.

All in all, I'm glad to see Ducati expand the line of sub-370lb flickable bikes with high end components and suspension (Iím too damn tall for the Il Mostro).
