had one of those before the white s4rs, never got the tricolore though :-(

There were many changes, not least the engine! but the biggest improvement is that they stopped putting tie wraps around the frame on the s4rs

It's the awesome looks and feel that no other bike has...
I actually do like the Monster but it's not even close as being as good looking as our bike.
Naked Ducatis have too much plumbing and gizmos hanging out that ruins the look once you're up close IMO.
They manage to conceal all that on the GRiSO and that's one of the cool things about the bike...

You are right Grisonut, i forgot about the looks!!! I think the Monster is a good looking bike, the issue is the engine is designed to be covered in plastic and when its not, does not look good.

Yep, and you know... a 848 tricolore bare metal tank for example is pure sex, but then again, you look at the MGS01 and long enough and you'll need to clean your pantsz! Razz Razz

Nice thread. I've been thinking of adding a Hyperstrada for some recklessness.

My GRiSO is now set up perfectly with a Mupo in the back, and an Arrow shorty pipe. It's only the 1100 but it's perfect.

They Hyper 821 would be my ride hard, put away wet and get new rear tires often girl.

I had the original Hypermotard 1100S, makes a young dickhead out of any old fart. What a machine!
Unfortunately the engine was the wrong way round and it had a chain thingy, so ended up back in Guzzi land. However, that bike was so manic in the corners and left such an indelible impression that I have forever since been on a never ending quest for the (my) perfect Guzzi.

Hyper has longer travel suspension than ya average sports bike, and once dialed in for compliance on our goat tracks that we pay heavy taxes for, so da gummint can tell us we got great highways (bullshit!), it becomes an awesome ride.

Its not me its the bike mate! When everybody else is getting tossed out of the saddle and backing off, you just keep the wick wide open. See ya!

My version of a proper touring bike, was amazing how much wind that tank bag would deflect at 150kph. All weight kept forward .................... pity about the 12 litre fuel tank.

I like all of the Duc Hypers...Stradas too. Rode my buddy's Multistrada recently and it was a buttload of fun. I'm heading to Winchester, VA tomorrow for business and am hoping to visit the Ducati dealership there since it's close my hotel. I'll hop on all of the bikes and pretend I'm riding them.

BTW...the Tuono 1100 Factory is absolutely out of sight. Holy cow what a bike!

A bloke I know bought a brand new Pikes Peak multistrada a year ago for about 21 grand, now with 12k on the clock, he's been offered the likes of 10 to 11 grand part ex. 50% depreciation in a year is bollox frankly. New buyers beware ! Secondhand buyers are most likely quids in.

I have a 2013 GRiSO purchased new in May 2014 that I am going to sell . Why am I selling a bike that is cool to ride, to look at ,to hear? Short answer--I just have too many bikes (5) and I need to sell a couple. I've owned many and most I wished that I could keep in a very large garage but I'm not Jay Leno. I am in the Syracuse,NY area the bike has under 2000 miles,so if any interest (or comments on what would be a fair price let me know.

Much like the Multistrada, even the GRiSO depreciates when you take one home.

You'll be lucky if you can get $9-9.5K. There are NOS bikes being liquidated from dealerships from $9.5-10.5K.

Good luck with your sale. The GRiSO doesn't speak to just anyone...
