    MT-09 v Ducati Hypermotard 939

    I am considering buying a new Hypermotard and was wondering if anyone had ridden both the MT-09 and the Ducati.
    I am not giving up my 2014 MT as I ride it in Singapore day in day out (will be a sad day when I will have to leave it behind though). Looking at buying the Ducati for blasting about on, short rides just for fun back home in Thailand. Just trying to gain some insight as a comparison.
    I see that both bikes are very similar on power, with the Ducati slightly a larger bike.
    Would be nice to have better standard suspension also (have put a Maxton shock on my MT).
    Are both bikes geared similar? I have lowered the gearing on my MT as Singapore is one constant traffic light drag race. Is the Ducati geared quite low as standard?
    Any info is helpful. Cheers!

    Funny enough, I haven't tried it out yet.
    I am in Singapore with my MT-09.
    I will have to wait a few months and let you know, meanwhile here are a few (very small) photos (brother in law collected the bike).
    Also pictured with a Yamaha R3 I bought a couple of years ago.
