Honestly, I wonder if it's related to OFHG issues and coolant contamination.
This is the part which is disconcerting. I'm no stranger to temperamental beauty queens. My Ducati 848 is an example of this. With about 16000 miles on the clock, the bike has been through the following:

Fuel tank replaced due to ethanol attacking the plastic material
Clutch master failure
Rignt front (or left can't remember now) LED failure in the turn signal
Immobilzer antenna failure
Horizontal cylinder head gasket failure
Moisture issue with front headlights

None of the above has left me stranded. Even with the clutch master failing, I was able to nurse my bike home through thick traffic.

We shouldn't be expected to play Russian Roulette every time we drive our cars.
