Benjamin Rooney - Hyper PUK

The only bad thing about the kit is that I'm going to need tires a lot more often!!


I took the bike out for it's maiden voyage with the intake installed and not only does it sound mean, it GOES!!! The power is very smooth and seems to never run out. I'm not sure if it's just because it's the power is so much smoother that the low end seems a little less abrupt, but it feels slightly less "snappy" from take off but you quickly notice that you're picking up speed VERY quickly. It will take a little adjustment for me to get used to the new power and continue my one wheeled hooligan riding, but I sure am pleased with the power overall.

One thing I noticed is the idle being slightly lower at 1300 instead of the normal 1350 Ducati calls for. I may need to bump that up a bit.

Thought I would send an update after my first trackday with the intake installed. Throughout the day I got several comments after pulling back into the pits about the sound of the bike... People wondered what I had done to the bike since it sounded nothing like the 4 other Hypermotards that were there that day. I also had the opportunity to run head to head with another Hyper with a Ducati Performance 2 into 2 underseat termignoni exhaust and ecu kit and was surprised at how my bike absolutely killed it accelerating out of a turn and down a short straight. That guy was just as surprised as well and thought he had something wrong with his bike until he talked to me in the pits. You might have another customer soon.... ;)
