Not a bad review. I agree with some of his comments but not others.
The roads I ride have very few straights, it's all bends that sweep up and down and the bike is really at home, it almost turns and follows the road on its own. Just wonderful. The riding position is a little more sporty than I would usually go for, but after a few miles in the saddle it's all forgotten and I just enjoy the ride.

Hmmm... seat heat rearing its ugly head. Ive seen this mentioned a few times now and it is for me a cause of concern.

Bane.

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.

Hi all!

The MCN comparison test has appeared at last!


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.

I didn't notice any seat heat on my test ride. I only noticed a little heat by my right foot on my test ride, but admittedly, that wasn't a long enough test ride to really experience it. I will find out when I get mine. I can't imagine the seat heat is anywhere near what it is on a Panigale because the exhaust on the Supersport doesn't curve up under the seat.

The quote from 2:40 "It heats like the ****!" Lol. I wonder if getting a "race" exhaust which removes the catalyst will substantially decrease that. Will be interesting to hear once some folks start getting it.

The race system puts the exhaust pipe right behind the back of your legs. This may be worse not better. I'm not sure if the rear cylinders pipe has any kind of cover like the stock one does.

I have noticed some heat in slow city traffic, but it's a motorbike and it doesn't seem that much different to other bikes to me. Personal opinion.
