Sounds like Kawi valve train noise but it is very difficult to judge from a video.

If there is nothing wrong with it apart from the noise I would suggest taking the bike to an experienced mechanic for a live sound check.

It certainly sounds like normal Kawi noise in the video, albeit a bit "bolder".

My bet would be normal Kawi noise then, at least from what I can hear.

My long distance, web diagnosis
