I ordered mine early January. Picked it up last Saturday and went for 1 longer ride and 1 shorter ride. I'm located close to city center Amsterdam, so my riding always involves a part of Urban riding to get out of the city, keep that in mind when reading my comments.
I was told to keep the bike under 5.000 RPM until the first service. The dealer said that after a few 100km's, it would be ok to rev it a bit higher when the engine is properly warmed up. A bit hard to judge the proper engine power now.
Nevertheless, I was just a little bit cheeky and revved it up to 6k already. Engine is nice, smooth, tractable. The push is not overwhelming, but more than enough to get you into trouble. When entering the highway, I didn't even realize I went up to 140km/h accidentally.
On the other hand, the difference between the MTS1200 is huge. There is no 'warp speed' or intimidation. It's more the kind of acceleration that makes you smile, but doesn't make you chuckle, if you know what I mean. All in all, I think I wouldn't have mind a 20/25 HP extra, to put it just between the MTS1200 and the Hyperstrada.
The front end dive which was reported in the journo test is indeed noticeable. It's not too bad with normal riding. For more sporty riding, I'd definitely jack up the front damping/spring. All in al the suspension is quite comfortable, but not too wallowy. I like it.
The bike is extremely nimble, more so than I thought. I like how easy you can make change of directions etc. It's a peach in this sense. Much better than let's say the KTM Super Duke GT I tried. Not sure about cornering stability yet, haven't properly tested this.
Fit and finnish is excellent. Attention to detail is very high, more so than on the KTM and Bmw's I sampled previously.
All in all, my first impressions are excellent. I forgot to mention that it absolutely looks a stunner in the flesh. I was constantly stared at in Amsterdam, lookswise it's even better than the 1200 imo..! Only potential gripe I have is that the engine might bore me at some stage, since I kind of like an engine that is not too intimidating, but on the other hand kind of scares you just a little bit.
Further report to follow.
