My only real thought would be "New battery? Under 3k miles??"
Apart from that, good looking bike. Enjoy cleaning the spokes and fielding the beak comments.

It's a beaut - enjoy! :dance:

Oddly enough my 2017 bike needed a new battery in it's first year. Been OK since then...

Excellent colour choice.
My local bike dealer told me ages ago if new battaries aren't charged properly they will fail quickly, a common problem apparently.
