2020 6500km, no noticeable whine that I can hear.

I'd be taking it back to the dealership at least for it to be noted.

@Deck Is it a noise you hear when releasing the gaz (engine breaking)? Like some powertool milling the metal?

That's the only noise I have but it is perfectly normal, just gear noise. It was worse when I had a Triumph Tiger.

Hi..i wish i could describe it better..it doesn't really do it in other gears just third and yes its there when you shut off but its really loud on and off the throttle. I wangled a test ride on a 2021 demo model at a dealers and it was quiet as a mouse, just normal gear noise. Oh well...

It seems like some skid plates really accentuate normal engine/gearbox noise. I wonder if that's the case with your bike? Stock skidplate or aftermarket?

 

Might I suggest a better pair of earplugs? 😉

Yeah it's there. As mentioned, the skid plate likely attenuates what is normal gear whine. 
Faired touring bikes do this.
