Sounds normal to me (I've owned several water-cooled Ducatis). I've ridden a couple of demo Supersports and noticed some heat coming from the rear cylinder, but not a problematic amount IMO. Motorcycle-specific clothing might help (leather or mesh pants).I've had my Supersport S for some three weeks now. It's my first water cooled and fairing equipped bike and I'm a bit concerned about how hot it gets. Really hot in slow traffic. Nice in cool weather but less so at near 30 degrees celsius (86 F). The instrument is showing 106 degrees Celsius (roughly 223 degrees Fahrenheit) before the fans kick in. That ought to be near or at the boiling point for the water/coolant mixture. Is that normal?
