Planning to buy GSXS1000 2020

Hello everyone, I am happy to be here with you, the right place I should be.
First of all, I am a beginner biker, I am riding ninja 400 2018, it's the first bike. But I feel something uncomfortable with it (vibration, sound and power). Especially vibration. They said it's normal for all twins engine. So I am planning to get next step up to gsxs1000. It's a different line I know, but I loved all YouTube vid about it. Sounds power.. etc.
But, the only question I need the answer is:
What about wind effect, especially +60mh??
I live in a windy coast city. It's very normal to be windy between ( 7mh to 25mh) mostly.
Is it a right idea to get a naked bike?

The last question is:
I heard a biker (tuber), said: gsxs1000 is not for highway, u may lose a bike control. is ti right?

sorry for talking long, and sorry for my language, I am not a native speaker.

Thank you very much.

I ride mostly highway...and always had naked,s ....bike is great at highway speeds,usually steady speeds at 80 mph with pulls often to 130 145 mph,,, bike always feeling solid at those speeds....after market wind or race screen helps a lot for comfort at those speeds.........so no a naked is as safe as any other bike safety is on the rider not the bike.....plus they do look good dont they

Where I live it's mostly warm weather all year so that's why I ride a naked bike as it just gets to hot with a fairing with all your gear on.
Plus the naked looks tougher

To the OP, could I suggest that you haven't ridden the 1000 ?
I must point out that the 1000 is not just a lot bigger 400, the bike that you've got accustomed to now. It's a really different sort of bike to experience and dangerous to those who don't respect it's high and sudden power .

A better bike for you than the 1000 as your second bike ever, please choose the current more milder and predictable powered GSX-S750.

As an Owner of both, the 750 has a really creamy smooth and vibration free engine and chassis. None here can say that of a stock 1000.
You will find the 750 will be all you want (and need) in a bike for now, and several years to come.
I am talking of the current model, not the one in Europe that was called GSR750.
The 750 only come's as a Naked though.

In terms of wind, depends on your height and gear. If you are shorter, you'll likely lean into the wind better. Also, I notice a lot more drag when wearing the poofy 4 season tourmaster jacket than my leather jacket, which you'll start to notice starting at around 70mph. There are some effective windscreen options available.

Regarding buying the 1000 after a 400, it's your money but I would highly recommend getting a test ride first at the very least. No facts to back this up but I'd guess that buyer's remorse starts to really kick in once you start to venture into literbike territory, experienced rider or not. I don't think it's for everyone.

Some things to keep in mind, 600s (I'm guessing 750s as well) are pretty tame below 6000rpm before you get into the powerband. This 1000 is in the powerband everywhere in the rev range, and gets even nuttier after 7000rpm. That's a huge leap from a 400 and requires much more throttle finesse to keep you from bucking like a wild bronco.

Also, carrying an extra 100lbs of weight is no joke either. Not too terrible if you're a taller guy, but can make slow speed handling more challenging.

400 power and weight is really a confidence inspiring type of fun. 1000 power is more of a scare you silly type of fun.

I have the F, and the freeway is not a problem. Handles like a dream. Super stable at speed and even passing 18 wheelers in the wind is not a problem.. You're gonna love it!!!

All bikes will be affected in heavy wind, especially crosswinds.
The GSX is heavier than a ninja 400, larger tyres (more contact with the road) and sturdier suspension.
Still seems like a strange selection criteria when purchasing a new bike.
Nevertheless, i'd bank on a GSX-S handling winds and speed far better than a ninja 400.
If you are riding highways frequently i would consider the F model, it will definitely fair better
