It's just the way it is. That's cruising rpms on a 600 and never bothered me for a bit.

Just remember that's not screaming, for those bikes. It doesn't really wake up till close to 8 then it's game on.

I'm 5'11" and 250 lbs. I put 17,000 miles on Cali's 675. Smooth if ridden fast and your body positions proper. It is a purpose built bike. It takes good core strength and lots of seat time to get used to. Great bike tho

While it is true that once you've tasted the power of a litre bike, everything else might seem underpowered, 675cc is hardly a small bike. There are many parts of the world where anything larger than 250cc is considered "big bore".

My second bike was a 1980 Yamaha Maxim 650. Going from my first bike - a 250cc single - the 650 seemed like it had all the power in the world, and certainly more than I'd ever need. It was my only transportation for some time and I took it everywhere and never once felt it was underpowered, too high-strung, or too lightweight. In hind sight, that old carburetted air-cooled 650cc probably made substantially less power than the FI 675cc triple of today.

It's all relative.

The bike is designed to operate at that level and higher on a regular basis for extended periods of time. It's not hurting it at all.

If you don't like that then get the 1000 and operate at the same speed with lower rpm's or change the gearing on the 600 to better suit your taste. Its a silly excuse to get a liter bike but whatever makes you happy i suppose.

You'd hate a 250, its always screaming but its intentionally meant to operate very close to red line all the time for optimal performance.
