Buying a Honda CBR600F

Hi I'm new to these forums but was hoping for some advice.

I've just been to check out a CBR600F and I was a bit put off by the noise of the engine. I've got a youtube clip of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ulcq7A8us9k

I realise its difficult to tell from just the noise of a bike from a phone microphone but wondered if there were any ideas of whether this is a problem/something I can ignore/possibly expensive. 

The noise and vibration seems to get a bit worse in second and third gear.

Any advice welcome.

Thanks,

Phil

There are enough CBR's out there that you don't need to even consider buying that you have doubts over.  Don't waste your time with it - just walk away and look for a decent one.
