Im thinking this would be more of a translation issue "...great heat...". I rode in around the city, stopping at 2-3 lights and couple stop signs (we were lost), i wont deny the heat, but it didnt feel bad and the air temp was in the 80s. I was feeling hot in my gear.Hmmm... seat heat rearing its ugly head. Ive seen this mentioned a few times now and it is for me a cause of concern.
On seat heat, there are some new video reviews from non - journo's. Nearly all say it is there but not a major issue. I guess it depends on whether you are lucky to live somewhere like Hawaii and spend all day in town - where most bikes will throw off heat. Compared to the Panigale's this is a dream. But like everything else, its down to personal comfort at the end of the day.
