I bought a set of brand new tyres today ( Bridgestone S22's ) go to tyre choice of mine.

Went for a long ride around 200miles to bed the tyres in, when in 3rd, 4th, 5th when at speed applying full throttle I felt what seemed like the rear slipping a little. This would happen at higher rev range, above 10k. I eased off and was hesitant to go full throttle again.

General launch and clutch feels good / normal to me.

Bike was in standard mode with TCS on full, has 11.5k miles - is it due for a new clutch?

Rear tire slip: the RPMs and speed will both increase.

Clutch slip: RPMs increase with no speed increase.

Edit: I just saw you had traction control on. More than likely you need a new clutch or clutch cable adjustment.

The clutch is very easy to change in that thing. There are a few really good vids on YouTube. But yeah, I'd check the cable slack first too.
