Just bought a like new 700XX. Engine seems to have a knock to it. Normal?

I just bought a like new 08 700XX. It has 45mins ride time. The engine seems to be loud and seems like it has a knocking sound while idling. I have a 2008 Honda Rincon that sounds very similar to it and the dealer said it was normal. Do these bikes engine suppose to be noisy? THANKS!

Ok thats what I wanted to know. When ever I take it to the dealer to have its 1st service I will have them listen to it and see what they say just for the heck of it as it might get quieter after the valves are adjusted. THANKS!
