I like the exhaust set-up, but not a real big fan of the cross-breed lookin' bikes like the BMW set-up.

Hypermotard Weight

You really believe that 385 lbs. stuff? The only thing that reduces mass on the Hyper is its smaller fairing design. Single-sided swing arms add mass versus two-sided. Plus the twin front brakes the majority seem to want.

My guess is that the Hyper will weigh about what an SS does with a 1/2 fairing - about 435 lbs. wet. If you really want light weight, there are a number of 4-stroke single-cylinder motards out there.

Dry weight 385lbs, I buy it...

Your excitement about the Hyper is clouding your vision. If you are looking for a nice-looking, V-twin 'motard from Ducati, then the Hypermotard is your machine. Just don't call it lightweight, because, based on the specs, it won't be.

I didn't call it lightweight and I agree that at 385lbs dry, it would not be... Either you are arguing just for the sake of arguing or...

No, I'm not just arguing to argue. What I'd like to see is Ducati get serious about machine weights. In this competitive market, their bikes are too heavy, and given that any 4-cylinder bike will make more HP than a same-design V-twin, less weight can really make a difference.
