Did a test ride on the 2013 Hypermotard

What a badass bike, holy crap that thing is fun!!!! Light, agile, 110hp and liquid cooled.

I might have to get one of these.

All that low end torque is amazing and just begs for you to twist the grip.

I bought my KTM 990 for this very reason. I love riding the rr on the track but around town it's nice to have a comfortable bike with tons of torque and begs you to stick a leg out and float the front end out of corners.

I think this might be my next bike......not anytime soon though.
If you are interested you have to consider the KTM and Aprilia competitors as well; 990 Duke and Dorsoduro respectively. My heart says Aprilia out of the three.

My GF has a 2011 hypermotard. That thing is a lot fun to ride. Havent had a chance to compare specs with the '13 but if it's any better than the previous years it must be awesome.

Glad I'm not the only one feeling like this. Lately I've been digging some of the sumo bikes and definitely will be putting some cash back for a purchase at the end of the year.

Sportbike scene is starting to get a bit stale..

Already looking at them. The Super Duke R is HAWT but a lot more money. Less money for mods, but it needs less. The Aprilia is nice but I like the feel of the Ducati more as far as geometry and riding position.

So how would you rate the three in terms of riding position when compared to the RR?

Can't do a direct comparison, completely different. I can say that I would have no problem keeping up in the twisties. These bikes can definitely corner.

It's a hooligan bike and I love it.
Would really like something like that for the street, since I can get my fun on the track rididng the RR, it would be nice to have something more comfortable on the street.

My thoughts exactly. The traction control and ABS make it a great street bike. You can turn them off and go have all the fun you want too.

Im considering selling my CBR to get something like this or a Street Triple. I commute and would like something more comfortable but still fast and fun to ride. If only I had the cash for something newer.

Older thread, but....just got home from the motorcycle show in Long Beach. Came away thinking that I need this bike and would seriously consider getting rid of the RR to do it. Might as well get rid of the supermoto too.

Seems I'm not the only one.
