Yesterday I road a friend's Sportster 1200 in the parking lot for about 100 feet and turned around. I was wearing shorts because the temp was about 83F degrees. While I did not touch the exhaust pipe or get a burn my skin got so hot even in that short distance it felt like someone had heated my right leg side of the cafe muscle with a hair dryer. You know that feeling of getting a very slight sunburn? That's what it felt like. Now the NC700X never generates that kind of heat and I really appreciate the design of bike.

Sounds to me like you learned a couple of things. Mostly, 1. there is a reason they make heat shields for motorcycle exhaust headers and 2. there is a difference in how much heat a liquid cooled engine puts off versus an air cooled one.
