My grey became the slowest colour for a while this weekend.  I tried to start after it had been sitting for two weeks and the battery was flat as a pancake.  An overnight charge solved the problem, but an optimate is on order as I suspect this is likely to be a regular problem.

Do you have the factory alarm fitted..?? Also, the OEM batteries are known to be junk, get yourself a decent Lithium battery and forget about it.

The battery shouldnt go flat after such a short time of no use unless you have something using power, or alternatively there is a fault. I rarely charge my bike  :305:

Not experienced this before...I'll be discussing when I take it in for its first service.

Away for 3 weeks at a time with work and not had any issue with not starting. Early days though.
Funny how we always go off Topic. Though we would have had far more people Biting at the actual Fastest color. Although because of Gen 2 ie 2020 Models. All Gen 1 bike owners been through this before  :305: :152:
