South what do you think?
Initially I also thought that the break in period might be considered in the redline warning, but it's not the case. 6250rpm is just the redline when the engine's still cold. As you can see in the other video the redline goes all back to 8400 (like E said, looks like 8250). So during break in period the moving redline isn't a good advice.
