Question New Hypermotard for 2013? Don't think so...

I was intrigued to look at the picture of the "New Hypermotard for 2013" Spy Shot that MCN ran this week - unfortunately I can't find any online versions so you'll have to go and have a look at it in WH Smiths...



It definitely looks like it has the 4V T11 engine in it due to the casing and plumbing, but that front end looks like the MultiStrada not the Hypermotard to me.

Maybe it's a MultiStrada 848 ??

Question

Doing a search to try and find the pic MCN used online, I came across an interesting thread (in Italian!) discussing the new Hypermotard.

It seems that the 4V 1198 Hyper was touted way back in the Feb 2011 (yes, more than a year ago!) issue of InMoto magazine: http://s2.postimage.org/uwlmy02mg/IMG_0336.jpg

and some more pics here based on the magazine's mock-up:
http://www.daidalgas.com/hypermotard-2012/

To me this still looks too much like the MultiStrada 1200 and surely it would be in direct competition with it, or at least far too many similarities to be a worthy model? Look at what happened with the StreetFighter - it went to an 848 engine for this year, so why not do the same to the highly successful MultiStrada (like they did the 1000/1100 and 620...) and have a lower-cost, entry level tourer?

I'm still not convinced it's a new Hypermotard!!

Ours spies tell us that there is a MultiStrada 848 to be shown at the Milan show in November, but also that the factory are indeed also working on a new Hypermotard as well!

Check out this latest spy shot - looks like the new Hyper to me!
