The vibrations will also depend on what gear you're in. In general however, beyond 7k you're in for some parallel-twin shaking action, that's just the nature of it. As such, V4s or inline 4s have less vibrations because the same RPMs are being generated more cylinders. This is also what gives the single cylinder bikes a unique sound, and fun to ride.

Roll it back to the dealer if under warranty and get them to look at it, and for that piece of mind. ;)

these are cheaply made sportbikes. An old trick i did when i raced quads was fill the bars with clear silicon caulk. This filled the bars and empty space with something light and flexible, it also took away vibrations.
