What new features would sway from current versions being offered?? 3-4 years is usually the norm with little changes. Except for the 1098/1198 series

Dont get me wrong, I really like th HM right out of the box..just curious, so that I make an informed decision. The only really improvement that comes to mind would be to perhaps lighten it up a bit, but that might be too costly for Ducati anyway.

better forks offered on all models would be great! Offer ohlins on the S and KYB's on the standard.

I'm wondering how much farther this can go on the air cooled engines. Ridability is already compromised.

New Ducati Hypermotard 796 for 2010

It looks like for 2010 the Hypermotard family will grow to include a smaller sibling in a similar vein to the Monster family. Reports indicate that Ducati is planning to introduce a Hypermotard 796 at the EICMA show this November. Details here

OK, please indulge me.. this is strictly my curiosity asking!

Considering a 2010 M696 is currently priced in the US at $8995 MSRP and assuming nothing changes with the HYM1100 base model still priced at $11995 MSRP. If they do introduce a smaller Hyper here in the US, how much over a 696 should it be priced at? Again assuming it would hopefully be equivalently equipped to a M696, ie Showa forks, radial calipers etc..

M696 $8995 (2010 MSRP)
HYM*** $ ??
HYM1100 $11995 (2009 MSRP)

I think it should also be priced around 9 grand, 9500 at the most. Any more than that and they're stupid. Why should it cost any more than a 696 anyway? It's not a "better" bike, just different...
