    Ducati Hypermotard 698 Mono

    Ducati teased us with a pic of their new single recently and have now announced the obvious bike for it to go into.

    The big question is pricing though??? Huskys on special for 20k only 3HP less although the Ducati would be magic given how good their rider electronics are.
    If only I had space in the shed ohhh and the $$$.
    The promo vid shows they know who their target buyer demographic is although lots of us old buggers ride like that too lol

    I noted reading the specs that it has a 4 step "wheelie assist" setting and a "backing it in" button...

    No doubt I could fire one of these into the shrubbery before morning tea.

    The FastBikes link quoted GBP11k for the std model, 11900 for the RVE. How that will translate to kiwi pricing we'll have to wait and see.

    A friend has the 2023 Hypermotard 950SP with those modes. Says the wheelie assist is more wheelie kill, he's not been brave enough to try the 'back it in' mode though!

    Edit - I see the mono has an advanced wheelie option with that accessory wheelie control.

    Ahhh, that's what I'm talking about. NICE.

    I gave up hoping that Aprilia would replace the DORSODURO 900 with a 660 version (the ugly off road bike they made isn't comparable)

    I couldn't help notice that Ducati used the AI voices for the English part of their video, I hope the bike isn't super expensive if they're cutting costs on voice-overs.

    Im predicting 28k nz for base model, 31 for other version.

    Then if you want to put a pipe on and tune without losing warranty thats going to be another 4.5k donation to Ducati.
    This bike is going to be popular like the desert x where they nailed the spec with that bike too. That was first announced as 24k to bait your interest then it balloned to 26 and is now a 28k bike.
    Husky have been discounting the awesome 701 so hopefully that might keep prices with sanity

    That would price it just $1600 less than the top of the line Hypermotard 950SP at $32600.

    Aussie pricing announced, $22800 ride away for the base model. So around $25,000 here.
