I'm riding a Hyper 1100S with velocity stack and Duc racing Cams. It breaths fire, steals girlfriends, smokes crank, shoots heroin, kicks you in the and for the cherri on top....drinks all the beer in your fridge. BAD !

I feel the front of the bike is very ugly. I love naked/streetfighter bikes. Own two myself.

I believe the bike has the potential to be amazing looking bike. But i feel that front end does compare or match the rest of the bike.

Take some individual bike to bring that to sexiness that duc's have been known for producing.

Better get Radiator Guards. Those radiator's are just asking to get pegged with rocks a debris from the tire. It is directly in line from where rocks would discharge from the tire.

+1 I think the front is ugly as well. It looks like it has a shrunken head. For comparison, I like the front of the CB1000R. It looks like it fits the rest of the bike.

A bit pricey for what is offered, even for Ducati.

i agree with you 100%, i feel they did it all wrong. Gas tank and back on the bikes is well done, tank and forward is all done wrong.

So lemme get this straight, you're saying the Japs haven't figured out naked bikes by saying they're like an Italian naked bike, that is not really naked?

Isn't, or wasn't the Hornet one of the best selling bikes of all, and is a naked bike.

There's something off with the red one. I guess i'm not used to seeing it with a red frame.

The Ducati Streefighter is HANDS DOWN the best looking factory naked bike made IMO. I want a naked for my next bike, and a slightly used 848 version should be perfect.


Not in that ugly yellow though.
