All the bikes I've ever owned has always gone above 200 when sitting in traffic on 80 degrees or hotter days. The only difference between them is some radiate the heat more than others. Did 300 miles yesterday with s1krr, some of it in traffic and it got up to around 220 but even though I can feel the heat it was tolerable. Considering how ridiculously awesome this bike is, for me that's a small price to pay. You have to remember that's about 200 horses between your legs so there's gonna be some heat. My R6 regularly gets to around 230 in traffic but the funny thing is I never even noticed the heat riding it. Just make sure you're wearing the right gear when riding (shorts, T-shirts and sneakers doesn't qualify).
