Just sitting there or after engine has been running? If the former, then no it's not normal. If the latter, then I will say ever new bike I have owned smelled like something was burning, though I wouldn't say it smelled like plastic. I would say the smell I got was from the radiator.

Yeah I know what you're talking about, it's normal -- you'll get the smell for a while as the coatings bake off the housings etc. I had the smell for at least the first 500 miles or so.
