I think it's really unfair to compare a motorcycle to a typical car out there. Motorcycles these days are all about pushing tolerances. Cars are about rolling as many miles thus the engines are beefier all around. The sportier the car is (and I have a sports car), the more time I allow it to get up to temperature. Motorcycles are as sporty as they can get!

Also, nothing revs like a motorcycle. Especially the smaller they get. I've seen as high as 17k redlines on some 600s.

Let them get to temperature AT LEAST somewhat.
