My first bike was the cbf125 which was awesome to throw around and even did a light tour on it (North Yorkshire down to London and back, a 500 mile round trip.) the only gripes were the horrific cheap tires that inspired no confidence, but I didn't have it long enough to change them.
My second and current bike is my beloved Suzuki sv650s. To say its 10 years old and been ragged, it's in awesome condition. It's used weekly to do a similar 450 round trip each week, all year, and it takes all that's thrown at it.
I'm not gonna lie to you all, I am the target audience this campaign is aimed at, check shirts and all. The only reason my beard isn't big is work! Hopefully by the time I get my red icon, I won't have to do the massive commute but I think it would be capable if the sv can do it. I was in the process of saving for an 899 for next year but the marketing on this got me hooked and whilst I'm *young and wild*, I'd probably be worse off on the panigale. The biggest draw in was the customisation options of the bike to truly make it yours, which will still cost less than the panigale.
