Those issues with the clutch are disappointing on a brand new bike, but at least the dealer sorted them without quibble. I can only think a new dash panel is the answer to the condensation issue. Interesting to note the weak rear brake, I have the same problem with the one on my MV, but it did at least pass an MOT

The brake is my biggest gripe as they won't acknowledge it is an issue, I hope to get it sorted

As Radar says, the clutch slip is both annoying and surprising on a new bike. That rear brake is a big problem though. Good luck with getting things sorted, it must take the edge off a great new bike.

It is a little disappointing, but the rest of the bike is so much fun, it compensates for it! :)

It does look a proper 'fun-bus' it has to be said!
