    My 2016 has that vibration that starts at about that same rpm.
    In 6th gear it starts at exactly 71 mph. At 70 it's pretty smooth but as soon as I hit 71 the vibration starts, in both the grips and the footpegs.
    It also starts in each lower gear, but since I'm usually accelerating through traffic I don't risk looking down and trying to see what rpm the silly bar graph gauge is at.
    I have gone into manual to see if it does it at the same rpms and yes, it does, I just can't remember the speed in 5th, 4th, or whatever.

    Have to agree with Jimmy da. My 700x smoothes out the further up the RPM scale I go. And yes , in any gear.

    I just picked up a 700x and new bike nerves had me googling the 4k vibration, hoping to find such a thread. Phew!

    The bikes power curve and smooth zone remind me of my long gone R100RT. The faster you go the smoother it gets. I like that.
    I have a 2018 DCT and have had the same results, I find myself speeding alot of the time because it gets so smooth.

    Do your vibes start at a specific speed, like mine do (see post #11)?
    At 71 mph I'm already speeding, so don't really know if it would smooth out if I went 90+. I'll have to check someday, if I ever come across a deserted freeway.

    Downshift. You can run higher RPM at a lower speed without worry of speeding.

    My '12 has 65,000 miles on it and it has always done that. No damage, just a characteristic of the engine.
