I just ordered one from Ducati Austin last week. It's the SP version. Expected deilvery sometime in late March.

Some thoughts:

1. Holy cow I can't wait! Smile on my face all this week.
2. Collission coverage under my current carrier was 3 times what it was for my MS 2016. I found another carrier that gave me a reasonable deal.
3. Probably going with an extended service plan, mainly due to all of the tech stuff on the bike.
4. Not a thought- but started clearing out a space for it in the garage today.

Meeee! SP as well.

Sorta, I put a deposit on one, dealer "said" it's supposed to be here last week or this week. It hasn't showed up yet so hoping for this week :)

Will be my first bike of this kind, always ridden sportbikes but super excited about it! I've been building 1098 for too many years now and haven't ridden a bike in 5 or so years so very excited to have a fully functioning bike I can ride whenever. I plan on doing some trackways with it too, I really miss the track.

Congrats on your order!

Picked up my 2019 Hypermotard 950SP today!

Put 10 miles on it to get acquainted. Lovely bike!

The rear hub, axle is the same dimensions as the 939, so I ordered a pit bull hypermotard stand. Need that to remove the wheel to change tires.

I also confirmed that R&G rear axle sliders https://www.rg-racing.com/browseBike/Ducati/Hypermotard_821/2014/SS0037BK
fit the 950SP so ordered those. They are good because you can use a standard paddock stand to lift the bike from the spindles for chain maintenance.

I had these front axle sliders lying around so I installed them and they are a perfect fit. https://www.t-rex-racing.com/2016-2018-Panigale-959-Front-Axle-Sliders-p/n80-16f.htm

Evotech frame sliders are on the way.

I am not sure I will put on radiator guards. Not a pebble on the lowest radiator after my first ride. I think it may be high enough to avoid garbage tossed by the wheel.

Bar end sliders seem like a good idea: https://www.rg-racing.com/browsebike/Ducati/Hypermotard_939_SP/2016/BE0071BK/

BTW, there is no USB power socket on the bike. I thought there was.
Why are there no pics? :)

Congrats on the purchase, you've got to be one of the first ones! Sounds like you're off to a good start with some safety mods, what's next?

Odd on the USB port, Ducati website says that's standard. Just did a quick google search and one review said the port is located under the seat.

Looks sweet Pard! As for the rad & oil cooler guards I think they are a good idea as the Pirelli Supercorsa’s pick up everything! I get real small pieces thru the vents on my front fender & only see them at night as the headlight illuminates them.

I opted for the whole set as I like how it looks & figured the head & coil were worth protecting too.

Enjoy your new bike!

My dealer mechanic showed me where the USB port is located. Under the seat, not much use unless an extension is run. The key to remove the seat is a hex wrench fastened to the radiator. SA screw is removed and then the seat comes off with some wrestling.

Thanks! That is way different & cool. So easy to get to the battery. Is the ECU in front of it? Wonder if they made it so you can get to the air filter without living the fuel tank?

Pics.

Mounted a radar detector and cell phone holder, wired up a line for heated gear.
I'm dripping with jealousy! You appear to be the "first kid on the block" with the new toy. :laugh:

I will probably fit the radiator and oil guard screens to mine. Here in Texas there are so many miles of roads in this big state that upkeep of the surface is expensive and the solution they use is to use a tar coat with an extremely corse (sharp edged) gravel treatement that cuts everything from radiators to paint to skin if you get hit by it.

I might be the first person in Austin to order one. Don't know. Will have to ask the dealer. Congrats on your new ride!:smile2:

Dealer told me today mine still hasn't shown up, "weather delays". They did however let me know their demo SP showed up today, I dunno if that's good or bad news haha. I want MINE :) at least I'll be able to see one in person now though

Noticed the 2019 Hyper has an auto shut off directional signal indicator. Nice!

Signal for a turn and after the turn it shuts off by itself.

The handguards bother me. Very cheap looking and purely cosmetic. A set of carbon fiber ones with nicer turn indicators should be an option.

Oh nice! That's a handy little feature.

For the handguards I'm thinking about doing something like the Rizoma Proguards, a much sleeker minimalistic look. If I do that I don't know what I'll do about turn signals yet.

I've seen there's aftermarket carbon options that replace just the top half of the factory guards but not a full carbon set yet that I've found. I haven't looked that hard either though.

The Rizoma Proguards look like a great idea. Bar end adapter is also needed.

https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/rizoma-proguard-system-street-edition

Rizoma has many turn signals to choose from as well. Lots of mounting options.

Universal Indicator Lights by Rizoma Bikes Accessories -



I like the look of new rage cycles 360 degree fork mounted LED signals. They are a bit ugly when unlit:

Another option for a functional handguard with LED:


https://soloracer.com/zetahandguard.html $143.95 for full metal handguard, proper protectors with integrated LED signals. Very dual sport in looks, and offer lay down protection that Rizoma may not.

https://soloracer.com/zetaproguards.html These are the pro version. You will need long brackets to clear the control levers.

I went ahead an ordered a set of Zeta guards with integrated LED signals, long clamps. I will let you guys know if it fits and attach some pictures.

The underseat USB port is powered only with the ignition key on. Standard length, 3Ft., iphone cord does the trick. Useful indeed.

The existing pit bull Hypermotard stand fits on the new Ducati Hypermotard 950SP, both sides. See attached pictures.

The only issue is that on the drive side, with handle forward, the kickstand is in the way. The kickstand must be lifted up or the pit bull handle will blocked and not move freely to the floor. Once the bike is secure, the kickstand can be lowered if need be, but then must be raised again to lower the bike to the floor.
