IMO, it depends on how the fuel is delivered to the engine. If it has carburetors, two or more carbs will require that they be synchronized, otherwise, you can do just about any other required adjustments for each cylinder, whether one or six. If you are a beginner, you may want to find out if the valves have adjustments, or are self adjusting. Most (if not all) newer bikes have some form of electronic ignition, so unless you go vintage, there should be no adjustments there, just replacement spark plug(s). I find the most important tool for any machine is a good service manual; finding one for your selections should provide you with what kind of maintenance you will need to learn - you can skip the sections on tear down and rebuilding, but those sections may have some tips on the maintenance procedures.
