Hey guys,

Bitubo has just released their steering dampers for the Hypermotard, and we already have a few on their way to us here in the states.

I don't think for a second that its necessary for me to tell you how important it is to have a steering damper on your HM, so I'll just let you purchase them on the site and type that your a forum member into the payment notes so that I can give you your 10% discount.

Go here to order - http://bellissimoto.com/BituboDampers.html

Why is everything for the Hyper so much more expensive than other Ducs?

fwiw, these look to be the same units as the ducati performance units, with different branding.

+1!!

I was thinking the same thing...the fleecing of the Hypers continues.....The arm coming off the top bar mount could use some sexy milling, machining or anything to make it look a) like I didn't make it at home with my bandsaw and benchsander and b) like its worth 5 bills...too harsh?:D

They're not the same and these are not hydraulic unlike the Ducati damper.
Also the adjustment on the Bitubo is on the rod versus body for the DP unit.
FWIW I paid the same price for the Bitubo unit for my Street Triple.

They are quite important, I know they have saved my ass on numerous occasions, and one of most recent customers to purchase one did so after dislocating his shoulder in a tankslapper on his monster 1100 two weeks ago.

That Bitubo is sexy but I'm very happy with my Scotts rotary.

Cheers

Very impressed with this unit's look, ease of installation and performance. Bellisimoto had my Bitubo delivered to rural South Australia less than a week from when I ordered it! And kindly and promptly as promised credited my credit card with a 10% forum member discount! Fantastic company, great product
