I am more than happy with mine and the few times I had someone on the back I never heard a complaint about the exhaust. Now sitting in traffic anything is going to get hot, but thats not what I bought my bike for and don't sit in traffic on it anymore anyways.

Get it, it is quite fun. However before you buy it, go to the nearest CVS and get some preparation H.

the 1000RR is an awesome bike, you could always grab an 08-09 and not have that problem

It does get rather hot in traffic on hot days, but so does anything else. Your passenger won't notice anything different than riding on any other sportbike.

I'm pretty fond of my 07, if that says anything.
Support your site sponsors!!

See ya @ the track!

The other drawback to that style exhaust (esp the CBR for some reason) is the exhaust pocket. If you ride for a good while, you and your gear are going to have the distinct exhaust flava. When I had mine, it was noticeable.

I noticed the same as well.
Heat is a non issue, however the poor excuse of upholstered plastic for the passenger seat may cause issues with your passenger.
