the framing is bad, too low, and i don't know why the sound is cracking, but i figure i'll put it here anyway because when i was still waiting for my bike, i would have watched any video of it, even bad ones :p

The mirrors didn't vibrate on the demo bike I rode (and I was expecting them to).
Judging by some comments in the forum, it's the luck of the draw when it comes to the mirrors. Some owners have one good and one shakey, others have both shakey and some state no shakey. So I guess I will be mentioning it to my dealer when mine arrives in May, He should be expecting a quick u-turn if I get the shakey's.

Mirror vibration may be affected by break-in mileage as well, getting better as the bike frees up.

You went thru the trouble of posting us a video of your ride, who cares about the frame angle, sound cracking. Kudos to you. Thanks for sharing! :laugh:

wow this SS seems to be a very good decision. It looks so agile. Can't wait for mine. Oh, and the rider makes good lines too. Nice riding.

The only negative report I have read was some twit at montjuic stating the SS lacked braking power on the track, even though ducati have made it very clear its not a track bike and by no means a panigale substitute.

On the road the brakes are very powerful, you'd need to be Marc Marquez to need better brakes.

Take no real notice of what others say (me included) and test ride one then make your mind up.

I took the F4 MV agusta and the panigale 959 (demos) for a test in February, certainly are not for me and my riding needs. So on the same day I paid cash for the SS. Crap thing is that although I'll be first SS owner in Africa, I have to wait until mid May before mine arrives. Only 3 coming to Africa in the first shipment, one of them is mine. I think I have read every write up on the SS and only found that one negative statement, all other articles raved on about it. My favourite report was by a 50 yr old rider, and he said it was still comfortable after riding it for 5 hours. So I went a bought one.
