Recently I filled up at a gas station, went to start the bike and nothing happened. It cycled everything ok, but when I hit the starter button, nothing. I kept trying, almost ready to call the dealer, then it started right up. Never a problem since then either.

The cure, (hopefully) is to hit the starter once and release. Don't hold the button down until the bike starts. Sounds strange , but it works.

Anyone else experience this?.

Stoopid phone/app😀... Anyways, not exactly but mine has "bogged/strained" down couple times but it started and noticed the battery dropped down to 9ish. Not sure if I had the start button mashed or not when it bogged down but will take your advice and just press it going forward.

Pressing the button once and briefly definitely does not work for the Europe models. I tried that and it failed to start and threw up many fault codes and the engine check light. It eventually reset but I hold the button till it starts now.

Anche io ho riscontrato problemi all'accensione della moto. Per non incorrere in questo problema, prima di accenderla la metto in folle (N) e con la frizione rilasciata.
