2020 Test Ride by YouTube Couple
Came across these two video's from a YouTube team. They are the "Ken & Barbie" of YouTube, at least that is what I call them, lol. Jaret Campisi has given away a bunch of custom bike's that his mechanic friend Dodo did the work on. Jaret has his own Patreon channel to fund the builds. His girlfriend Christina K. also rides. They were given a 2020 Supersport S to try from Ducati. Interesting to see what they will think of it after having it for a bit...
Sunshine and my ride is all I need...
2018 Ducati Supersport S, "Solana"
2017 Ducati Supersport S, "Annabella"
2006 Honda CBR600RR, "Red-Rocket"
1990 Honda VFR400 , "Baby V"
and a dozen more previously owned bikes

I saw this posted too, I was surprised that this was his first time ever riding one. I think the SS is in need of a refresh and part of that is new fully hard saddle bags with a better mounting system.

So I watched the 1st one. I was interested in what this guy had to say about the bike as I donít need a review Iíve owned my supersport S since it first rolled off the production line. I have put it through itís paces coming up to 30000km I know what this bike is like and how it handles. My impression was that this guy is a knob. A knob who thinks HP is king regardless !!WTF I expected him to say next. ďThis would be a good bike for your girlfriend to learn to ride onĒ well he is right in saying itís an easy bike to ride but I would lay $1000 bucks down on a race through the twisties against a Diavel any day.

Yeah, ran across Jaret’s YT videos a few years ago. Other than his hanging a bunch of CF parts on nice bikes and his incredibly hot girlfriend, there’s not much redeeming value, IMO.
So, lemme get this straight.
I twist this little tube, it gets loud, I go forward really fast and it makes me smile...is that how it all works?

As soon as he said it's for beginner/intermediate, I shut off the video. That's something I'd expect a typical street riding douche to say, and I'd rather hear the opinions of someone who has respect for a motorcycle's underlying capabilities. I don't know that guy's skill level, but the experienced riders I've known knew that even a Ninja 300 can be pushed beyond 99% of riders' skills.
The SS is manageable by an intermediate rider, but if you don't want to spend money fixing scraped up fairings, I would NOT recommend this bike to a beginner.
