I'd wish he'd ridden the SP, I've one on order. Curious is to how they'd like the marzocchis and ohlin rear shock.SO far what I've read has been pretty good.

Agreed. Sounds like a full racing Termi is in order :-)

Ugh, I was so close to getting the SP. Really nice looking set up. I know they have the "strada" version (cough), but that really seems a stretch. If I didn't want to do some trips this is the bike I would've gotten.

Bronch, I believe that you got the top of the range with the MTS PP and it goes *REALLY* well with you lovely red Tri .. man your pani looks awesome. Proper Dialled-in Demon.

I have this Tricolore thing going across all my bikes with a 1199 Tri, 1098 Tri and a black, red, white R1. I decided to keep the R1 as I love it so much and the HyperMotard SP will be my forth bike. Jeez .. this Ducati thing has really got a grip of me.

EDIT : I know the MTS PP is also black, red and white so that is instantly in my wheel house !

The HyperMotard SP is really small and very compact, you can lower the height by 20mm with the DP Comfort seat and you can swap out the suspension with the suspension from the Japanese version to get a further 20mm in lower height. The Mirrors have a cool little grip on the bottom left and right hand side (respectively) and you can actually see out of them. The bike sounds awesome with the stock exhaust. Rear wheel is the same as the 1199 tri design while the front wheel is a new design.

The HyperMotard SP to me is a fun bike and as with the others I plan on getting the full DP kit for it. Good bike for blipping around on, however nowhere in the same league as your MTS PP.

I believe Ducati has a big hit on their hands with the HyperMotard SP just as they do with the 1199 and MTS PP.

You seen the Arai helmets for the MTS PP - Wooah ..
