Friend of mine bought a brand new Challenger and at 1300 miles it developed an engine miss and has been in the shop for 3 weeks. His brand new bike is no longer brand new.
Did they give him another bike to ride in the meantime? I mean if you spend $30k on a motorcycle; you definitely want to ride.

Probably an injector or sensor issue. Please let us know what it ends up being. Just curious.

First year always gonna have some bugs. :(
That's what we have been conditioned to accept, proper R&D isn't testing on the public.
And that would be exactly why I’d never buy a first year of an entirely new design.
Read above, and that's a sad truth.

They did give him a loaner.

Perhaps the loaner was a Honda Rebel 250 :)

One month later they replaced the throttle body and injectors, he said it's running good.
