Most motorcycles will vibrate, I doubt it will be a discomfort for you compared to a smaller machine's vibration.

All bikes vibrate. Single pin vtwins always vibrate more than dual pin vtwins AT IDLE.... Vibrations at speed rarely have anything to do with the motor, unless there is a problem with the motor. Those vibration can offent be dealt with, via adjustment, simple modifications and elemination of bad rider habits.

I used to have a 1999 VT1100C3. My wife could not stand the vibration. It made her legs fall asleep....
