5 Things I hate about the 899 Panigale

Guys...to start before I get bashed... I LOVE my 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale... but I hate these 5 things...Call it Ducati "character" if you will, but these 5 things probably bug me the most and I wanted to share my thoughts with you

Otherwise, beside these obvious cost cutting moves on some parts, again.. I love this motorcycle

Seat is OK
Heat? Not too bad
Pegs are a bit slippery
Mirrors are quite good for a Ducati Superbike
What was the other thing Potty mouth?

Yeah don't click on it, he's a flip.

Firstly, I liked your detailing video. I watched that. 'Liked' it even. Informative. To the point. And something I would watch again when the time comes to clean my bike. So you get multiple views from 1 viewer = more dollars for you...

Secondly, this video wasn't any of those things.

Seat. The seats are fine. I toured Australia on mine.

Heat. You are straddling a performance machine generating 12,000 controlled explosions every minute between your legs. It's a Superbike that goes very fast. The outcome is heat. Also you live in Canada. It's kinda cold there. I live in Australia, and it's currently Winter here and it's 29C tomorrow. Heat... you've only tasted heat. I was born in it. Molded by it.

Footpegs. I replaced mine only because I was track riding. Street riding in the torrential rain the pegs were never an issue. Maybe it's because I didn't wear sneakers?

Paint. Yeah OK. I agree with you there. It sucks.

Mirrors. Ride a MV Agusta for awhile. For a V-twin sportbike, mirrors are fine.


1) If you're going to swear, be good at it. I was a chef, my close friends are maritime sailors, and to us the ability to sew a great insult is an art. Swearing for effect also has it's moments but it just seems like you were struggling to fill a 3 minute video. You didn't swear at all during the detailing video. Why now? If you hope to create a strong following, either tone it back a bit or tell me to get f*cked in a creative way.

2) Don't make click bait posts on an internet forum. Make your points in a post, then add the video at the bottom. You might get more people involved in your debate rather then hating the Internet because you've wasted their time.

Good Luck

Excellent feedback Rowan.

I've enjoyed a few of Sonduren's videos, but it irks me when YouTube vloggers use the forum to advertise their videos but provided minimum forum contribution.

Sonduren, I hope you keep making your videos. I search 899 related keywords regularly enough on YouTube and enjoy watching new videos about our bikes. But like everyone's said, no more click bait. Write out your thoughts as you would normally do in a post, and provide a link to the video.
