Now, This Is One Unhappy Ducati Hypermotard Customer

Have you ever experienced that "impossible to let go" feeling that makes you unable to throw away things even though they are no longer functional, and there is absolutely no future for them? If the answer to this question is "yes," then you will most likely NOT ask vlogger snowcat why he isn't picking another bike.
This Hypermotard SP looks cool, but has a sad story 1 photo
The video after the jump mixes several mishaps Snowcat had with his 2015 model year Ducati Hypermotard SP, a very cool and fun piece of machinery, whatsoever, with ample footage from yet another misadventure that left him stranded in the middle of the night with a dead machine.

According to the video's description on YouTube, the Hypermotard was nothing but trouble since the day he got it. The list of defects  is impressive for a 2015 model year bike, and it includes:

"- Front Rotors and Pads replaced due to Warping
- Horizontal O2 Sensor Replacement
- Vertical O2 Sensor Replacement
- Multiple ABS error resets
- Starter Motor Replacement
- Now, Unknown Electrical Issues.
"

Aside from the multitude of problems the Hyper experienced, snowcat seems even more frustrated about the poor customer management and their failure to get back to their clients as promised.

According to snowcat's own account, even if he called Ducati's road assistance, they canceled the tow and left his bike unattended for the night. After a new call early in the morning, Ducati Corporate contacted a tow truck, which picked the bike at... 10 pm.

As if things were not bad enough already, snowcat also dropped his Hypermotard while pushing it off the road, adding some damage to the rest of the (still unknown) electrical issues.

Now, the final question is how much must a rider love his or her bike to put up with such a cruel series of events instead of filing lawsuits, sell the bike and go for another brand? We guess the answer is snowcatmuch.
