I think it's the trapping of the heat that's more of a problem.

I haven't ridden an MG but I've ridden several Boxers and heat wasn't an issue.

I've noticed heat from the CB this past week. It's been in the high 80's and low 90's. By design the engine sticks out pretty far on either side. At stoplights those outer cylinders defintely radiate. Once moving it's a non-issue.
