My bike gets a similar noise, but not so much of a whine, at or around the 2800 RPM mark under heavier than regular flat surface load. It's more of an exhaust noise and I think it's perfectly normal. Kind of sounds throaty and cool.
Mine makes a similiar noise as well. I can check if its in 3rd gear or what -- I think, as Sykes said, it is usually on short shifts when the RPM is around 3k or lower and the engine is pushing a bit more to get into its power region. I have over 6k in mileage.. no issues that I know of yet.
