Ducati set the new standard for fun and hooligan when they introduced the Hypermotard. The Hyper's compact and nimble design necessitated a small fuel tank in the original design. Ducati enthusiasts like to enjoy their bikes in the canyons and to ride to work and found the 100 mile range lacking. The Cycleworks HM69 large fuel tank kit blew away everyone's expectation by providing a stunning usable 6.4 gallons of fuel. This capacity allows the thirsty 1100 dual spark engine, even in modified form, a range of 200 miles!
While working on providing alternatives to the OEM fuel tanks (and fuel pumps) for Ducati MH900e, Monster, and HM1100 motorcycles, a tremendous amount of research has been made ensuring that our products exceed requirements for road going motorcycles. We researched DOT, NHSTA, CARB, and SAE for standards, guidelines, and suggested practices. Through the entire process of developing the HM1100 tank, ALL ASPECTS of "best of industry" practices have been applied to the design and manufacturing with the goal of making the safest product possible.
CW HM69 fuel tank specifications:
Usable capacity: 6.4 US gallons (22.2 liters), allowing for more than 200 miles between fueling stations.
Lifetime replacement warranty (limited to the tank itself), including damage to the tank resulting from improper installation.
