Sure, it makes the sound when cold and hot, The video was taken on a cold start after doing some work on it. Just more noisy when the engine has warmed up and idle that's all
I'll be passing by a local motorcycle garage this week to have a quick word about a few other things, Lets see what they have to say about this noise, No harm in asking. ill keep you posted if it helps. Although wouldn't worry if i was you..
Worth mentioning my bike has over 25k miles, used on a track few times. Fact it sounds identical to yours, really gives me peace of mind..Although in my case could easily be the valve clearance requiring adjustment soon. Honda recommend every 16000 miles
Also remembered, bike went to get a MOT 2 months ago. An MOT (Ministry Of Transport) is required by law in U.K before using a vehicle on the road. We need this certificate before applying for insurance, tax etc basically a certified garage will check over the bike making sure it's road worthy, stating any issues at the same time. Anything serious and we aren't allowed on the road, quite strict and no mention of the sound which further confirms everything mentioned above ;)
