No vibrations but in 5th and 6th gear you do feel the pulse of the V-Twin engine that can be mistaken for a vibration, if that is what you are feeling you will get used to it and soon you will hardly notice it unless you think about it.
You are in your break-in period until you hit 1,000 miles but the transmission/primary are gear driven and they will likely take a good 20,000 to 30,000 miles to fully break in and get their smoothest.
My 2013 Victory Cross Country Tour took 30,000 miles and it was a gear driven primary and transmission.
My Harley Davidson Ultra Limited Low took 20,000 miles but it was a chain driven primary to go along with the transmission gears.
I am currently thinking at the 4,100 mile mark on this Yamaha Star Venture that the primary/transmission may be broken in by the 20,000 mile mark the way it feels now.
You are always going to feel some vibration on these V-Twins because they are not balanced completely. While this Yamaha Star Venture uses two counter balance shafts it still has some vibration. I would say you have nothing to worry about and will soon get used to it.
