Is my R6 okay?

I just bought an R6, it's my first sportbike. I test drove it around town but never really got on the throttle and never got out of 3rd gear. When I took it out today I was able to play with it. It seems to be down on power until about 8k rpm then I can feel it pick up, then when it hits 10k the rpms shoot right up as if it hit a powerband but the power doesnt reach the wheels, just alot of revving it seems like but I am still gaining decent speed, it just seems like alot of wasted revs. Then I'll shift into the next gear and the rpms dont really change but I know I shifted up into the next gear. I only have this problem at full throttle, the bike runs and rides perfect when putting around.

Sounds like a burnt up clutch maybe

Make sure the cable is properly adjusted (there are threads containing videos on this) before assuming the worst.
