Love the ride so far, but encountered a few hiccups along the way. Wonder if any of you encounter this too on the Hyper 821.

 

- Engine cuts off on its own when slowing down to a stop on approaching a traffic junction on red light. So far it happened 3 times.

 

- Started the bike with 'error' shown on display. 'Error' went off after awhile during warm up. Rode out onto the highway and the throttle response was sluggish (Sports mode). The sports mode felt like urban mode. Everything went back to normal after I stopped at a petrol kiosk and turn off/on the whole bike again.

 

- Second encounter with the sluggish throttle response was when I pressed the ignition button too quickly before the 'ali baba' lamp went off whenever u turn on the bike. So from there I learnt that the ecu must 'load' properly before pressing the ignition to avoid sluggish response from the ecu.

 

 

Overall, despite these minor hiccups, I still enjoy riding this bike.

 

Ride safe everyone.

There is an update for the ECU recently. Have you done it? The European riders had the same issues. Most of them reported to have it resolved after the ECU updates

 

yup...done the update already. it still happens. Clutched in to down gear upon approaching a bend, the engine died on its own.

Send the bike back to minerva let them check.

 

Sent already loh. Seems like they can't do much except to reset/reflash the ecu...

 

Doremi> I'm using Shell 98. So far it's been ok now.I guess cannot whack the throttle immediately after riding out from my carpark. hehehe...

Congrats!!! Its a real fun bike to ride =D

No problem it will survive the daily commute. Nowadays Ducatis are more reliable than ppl think hahah

 

Just for your reference, FC I'm getting roughly abt 17-18 km/L, with Termi exhaust and 14 tooth front sprocket, and it can take 95 RON without any issues. Thats what I pump in SG. On paper, supposed to be a 16L tank, but usually low fuel light comes on when there is abt 6-7 L left.

 

Yes servicing intervals have gotten longer, with the first major service at 30,000 km where they will do the valve clearance check etc, as compared to the 12,000 and 24,000km intervals of the previous gen model. This should cost you around $1k or maybe less.

 

Other than that, usual oil changes every 5000-6000 km. I usually buy my own oil and bring to Minerva to get it changed. So I just pay for the oil filter and labour. Minerva charges labour by the hour, cant remember exact charges, but I think its ard $60 per hr or sthg. Basic oil change probably takes ard 30 mins, and they do other simple checks and wash the bike for you. You can bring elsewhere to do, but better to do at Minerva if still under warranty.

 

Did you get the base model or the SP?

Hi fellow HM/HS riders, been riding my Hyperstrada for a month now. The most fun bike I've ever owned. For commuting, I use touring mode which works perfectly. On wet roads, I switch to urban mode for more ABS & traction control. The bike is best when you run it above 4k rpm. Anything below, it's not happy. On expressway legal speed (90km/h), 5th gear is enough. Its not fun to cruise on the HM/HS, it's meant to be ridden hard with fast accelerations. Panniers will fit a full face helmet.

 

Servicing charges for the HS/HM 821 from Minerva are as follow:

Run-in Service - $240

Regular Service - $270

15000km Service - $440

30000km Service - $1360

Yamaha WR200

Ducati Monster 400/540

Yamaha TDM850

Yamaha TDM900

BMW R1150GS

Suzuki Djebel 250XC

Suzuki Vstrom 650 ABS

Thanks for the heads up...

 

i'm estimating that i'm going to clock +/- 1800 km per month.

Yes, i know high mileage Ducati will hurt the re-sale value. So, let's get past that.

 

So, will the regular service ($270) be my once per month kind of thing?
