On my bike, it's the exposed frame that gets hot and cooks my legs. The 1100 definitely produces less heat. That may be because there is no catalytic converters to contribute to the heat, or it may be the frame design, I'm not sure.
Interesting as I find my 05 ST is less hot than my 06 Tiger 955i. That thing positively roasts my legs.
I think that the lack of any heat management aka fairing on the Tiger is a big factor.
