Angry Is this a Lemon

I bought my Rivale in April of this year a 2014 model. It is now September, and the bike has seen the inside of my garage and the dealership more than the road itself.

I first had the famous stalling issue, after numerous complaints to the local dealer and being told it would all be fixed with Software, it wasn't until I got irate and explained the Throttle Body Bleed Air Screw issue to the technician that he agreed to look at that and adjust the screw accordingly fixing the stalling issue. The bike leaked coolant from day one which resulted in a hose, clamp and gasket replacement. The rear signal lights worked intermittently and were replaced, now the headlight is out and the local dealer ordered a wiring harness as the problem was deemed to be a faulty wiring harness because it blew 2 fuses trying to trouble shoot the headlight issue. The part arrives 3 weeks later from MV.IT and it's a light switch not the wiring harness at all. Light still not fixed bike apart at dealer and no resolve in sight, is the bike cursed, is it me or do I have a lemon?

I bought mine in April as well. I have been completely happy with it. Not one problem. Nick on wood. It does seem like a lemon. But then again, the first model out, there are bound to be growing pains. I would think that once you get passed this, you should be fine.

Good luck
