You could have a problem!
Is this the first time you took you hands off the bars and discovered this, or have you occasional taken both hands of the bars and this just developed. If it's the latter it is a problem and should be corrected.
Some motorcycles do have a wobble when you take your hands off the grips, older Goldwings were notorious for this.
Quick steering sport bikes tend do it, which is why most of them have steering dampers. Some bikes just need one hand on the bars to dampen this out. It also is more frequent with bikes that use tapered bearings in the steering head if they are not properly adjusted
IF you feel it with one or both hands on the bars it is a problem
My T120 is still at the dealers waiting for winter to end and a chance to increase the mileage from 1.0 miles, so I can't say it this is normal on the T120.
Almost all of the bikes I've owned or ridden that did not have a steering damper tended to do this. The old Meridian Triumphs had a friction steering damper.
It is what it is, until it isn't
