Just put down a deposit on a Hypermotard at Ducati Seattle.

It'll be a nice trip to go to an exceptional shop to pick it up and ride it back.

Got to support those outstanding dealers.


Who else is in line for one of these bikes?

I have been seriously thinking about it. If it wasn't for a new home purchase in the next few months...I would have a deposit on one. Come Summer/Fall things might look a little better and hopefully save some for a deposit. I never saw one in person at the shows, I cant wait to see one in person, let alone take it for a spin. Congrats Mark, I'm jelous!

Congratulations!

And let me catch my breath.The last two days have seen not only a Kenny Roberts MotoGP bike setting the fast time in Qatar, but Mark Buckelew has bought a Terblanche styled Ducati ! At least you waited for a really good one. I sure hope that your second experience with Ducati quality control is much different than the first one. Anyway, now the sweet agony of waiting is all yours.

Hope they make a large first run of these bikes. Seems like there is a great pentup demand for the bike that ( in my opinion anyway ) the MS should have been in the first place.

I've heard many nice things about the Supermotard by Ducati. I recall a pic of it and it was sweet. Hypermotard riding/racing sure looks like fun, besides a great training tool for street or track.

Dependability? 2V motor is bullet proof and at 100HP, hi torque and 385 lbs. I'll bet it rips.

You lucky guy Buck, I was waiting for your post.

BTW, just saw the new multi-spoke BST wheel for hypermotard bikes, one word, beautiful!

Bravo, my friend! It sure is a helluva bike. I can imagine that this thing is gonna RIP on the tight backroads. Almost worth my while to get one just for my annual trip down to the NC mountains!

Hope you enjoy it. I'm sure it's gonna be a blast!

Barry.

Let us PNW types know when you will be out our way. Maybe we can all go for a ride.

Fortunately, there wasn't much for him to do since it is essentially bare!

Bevel was the first person I called after I did it.....he found out before my wife. We've already talked about how we're going to arrange the ride back.

I'm definitely not the first on the list...and by the end of the week, I'm sure I won't be the last. We'll definiteley have to spend some a couple of days in the Seattle area on the backroads. Hell...maybe put the break-in mileage around Seattle and let Dave's guys do the first check.

I'm jazzed.

I'd love one, but not got the budget at the moment, will be interested to hear a review when you get it. :)

I'm far from the first on Dave's list...when it comes, it comes. No need to be the firt on the block with one. I'll definitely write up a review. Looking forward to that motor.

Congrats Mark, I have been dreaming about what it would be like to own one. I am sure it will be a hoot to ride around town and the twisties. Great low end power too, wheelie time.

I have one "word" for you, Synergy...."HELOC"!!! Lol, perhaps not coincidentally, that's how I paid for Mark's 853. :)

I never knew what those were, sure looks like a spartan little thing...you know, all killer no filler.
