Some parrallel twins sound good Triumph's old Yamaha XS650's, but the new gen Kawasaki just sound like big single blat blat sort of.
I never liked the sound of my 650R, maybe only up to around 4000.
It still sounds better then the F800 BMW IMHO.
The parallel twin in the Honda NC700 series sounds like a v-twin.
