Was riding back home and ran over a pothole at 70kmh...should I be concerned? I saw the pothole but it was too late to avoid and instead slightly stood up on the bike to avoid the impact but didnít feel much feedback. Pothole doesnít look deep.

Give the bike a once over; tire, rim, steering and etc.. safety first !

If your tyre stays inflated you shouldn’t have ny problem, just keep an eye on it and check the pressures stay static over the next few days...

Maybe wise to check the rear shock linkage plates, make sure you didn't crack one.

Thanks for the feedback guys! The tyre pressure seems fine and I couldn’t see any damage to the rims and I will check the rear shock linkage plates. Just paranoid since I have just got the bike.

Well, if You want to be super, duper, uber cautious, You can do what the track guys do after a crash on the track.
You can unload the bike - by loosening all the bolts, like engine, front & rear suspension, axels etc. (not all at once..)
and then properly center, adjust, and tighten everything to specs.
That prevents uneven load, twisting, binding and unwanted tension.

my 2 cents - pothole looks small. Inspect your rims otherwise don't sweat it :)
