LATEST UPDATE : it was the fuel pump. They replaced it (no charge) and apologised . Luckily they had it in stock. All is well. And now without the “have I run out of fuel ?” stress it is even more fun to ride !
Yes, you are right. I called the dealer and they told me to take it to them asap, they suspect a stuck fuel tank floater and/or a faulty sensor..
Thank you for the feedback. At least I know I am not the only one.. :)
It is so nice to find you all here!
After going through 8 (different) Japanese motorcycles since 1984, finally I decided to go American :)
I picked up my new FTR1200 S two days ago and I fell instantly in love !! I never had the V-twin experience and its a revelation to me.
