I have a 2022 Special with about 900 miles, took delivery almost two weeks ago. Two different times today bike would not start on first try, second try it would start but would be in Ride Mode Fault. It would run but have limited power. If i shut it off and wait about ten minutes it would start on first try and be normal again. Called the dealer and will be taking it in tomorrow and dropping it off…Frustrating! This is my 6th new Harley purchased and first one to go back to dealer for ANY issues. Just a little bit concerned.

I've had this a couple of times, i get less starting issues if I let the bike cycle through everything on the screen and pull the clutch in when i start it.
Interesting, I do give it time to cycle through everythin but don’t pull the clutch in, I will give it a try. Thanks

Most errors are usually caused by the battery struggling to crank the beast over, Pulling the clutch in appears to make a difference since the starter motor doesn't have to spin the transmission too.

Had similar with 2021 Special. Seems not so uncommon and surprised it hasn’t been sorted with the second iteration.

Mine happened at petrol station recently. Only concern is if it happened after stalling in traffic.

+1. A charge to the battery and all issues gone!!.
In modern bikes, with too much electronics and small batteries is neccesary put in charge the battery each month or two at least. Good for electronics and good for battery life.

I think I will plug in the battery tender more often and see if that helps, thanks for your suggestion.
