Looks like the guy short shifted it for some reason and his timer is optimistic but its quick enough for me. Looks like high 4 seconds to me. Quick enough for this old man.
This is the second video I have seen where it appears the bike has hazard lights. I wondered why bikes havent had those in the past, or at least the bikes I have ridden. Pretty cool feature if you ask me. I might even consider turning them on in certian situations (dusk or dawn for example)

Harley's have had hazard lights for well over a decade. It is a nice feature, although I've had the need to use them. None of my other bikes do though.

My ZRX has hazards. I've only used them to check all my turn signal bulbs. Works great for that.

My brothers Gold Wing has them as well.

My CBF1000 has hazards too. They only go when the key is "ON" though, unlike a car. Still, I'm glad to have them.

I know my 84 Kawi ZN700 had hazards, can't remember if my 82 Spectre 750 had them or not. Those were the only bikes I owned that had 4 way hazard flashers.

+1 First thing I did when I saw that pic was put my thumb over the topbox so I could see what it looks like.

Ninja 750 and 1000 had hazards for a long time...even way back in the late 80's

My 05 GSXR had them as well.

OK. I'm home now. Be forewarned...............I've consumed 2 pots of coffee since 2pm today.
Anyway, after seeing pics of the Moto Guzzi Griso, I was smitten by the brown leather seat cover on that bike.
I was thinking that, after putting a couple thousand miles on the 1100, I would like to have the seat reshaped (if needed) and recovered with that rich, brown Italian leather. I would however, like everyone's input on my idea. Would that brown leather fit the appearance of the 1100, or am I way off base here?
Here is a pic of the Griso..........

You're waaay off base.

That brown leather seat looks good on that green Griso. But, it would look like a$$ on a red, black, or even white cb1100. There are no earth tones on a cb1100 to compliment such a seat.

Black Seat for the cb1100 is probably best.
