Not with my Trophy, but I did have a bad battery on my 2008 Tiger.  Died the first week.

I spoke too soon.  Just ran up to the store, and when starting the bike to come home, was given the error "low voltage, unable to connect to radio".  I unplugged my heated gear, restarted the bike and the radio came on, plugged in my gear and it worked too.  Maybe just a fluke, but I'm thinking not.

Just a thought ... Maybe start the bike let that alternator get up to speed then plug in you gear ...  :821:

That's what I'm doing now by necessity, but I've never had to do that on any motorcycle before.  I'm thinking it's the battery.  As it is, the bike isn't fitted with heated anything yet, so you'd think that by default the charging system should be more than capable of powering one heated jacket and the radio (in bluetooth, so not even powering the speakers).  I've got a new Yuasa fitted on my Tiger that I'm going to swap out and see if that makes a difference.

As regards the engine noise and driveline whine I have to say that I could hear both when I rode the demo bike but I didn't find it too excessive.
