I have ridden thousands of bikes, literally. Getting on "new" bike is always strange for the first ten minutes but it soon becomes part of you. Don't try and find max acceleration or max speed. Go for rides out just to become part of your bike, soon you will feel at home and learn about it.
Just enjoy the ride, and watch out for idiotic car drivers.

I think that after a few months, you feel it is still too much, then it is too much. You then need to decide, do you sell it or do you put up with the issues?
