I have had it happen ONCE in 6,500 miles between 5/6 at the end of a long days riding (i think i was being lazy)

When i first got the bike and rode it home i realised it wasn't quite right then adjusted the linkage/gear pedal position to suit my big-feet and it has been fine, some owners report it happening in the first couple of thousand miles then it seems to bed-in and become a non-issue

If it later becomes an issue i expect Honda will address it under warranty/recall

took one out on a test drive the other day...at first i got the previous sensation of a electric uninvolving type engine but after going up and down the same road for about 30minutes i began to get it...you can feel the motors caracter its just that its so smooth.the gears were buttery smooth ,and i was changing them up and down a hell of a lot..handeling great and there was no wind buffeting at all.its fast if you want it to be but no scary lunge forward upon twisting the throttle.good exhaust note and seating position very good all in all it grew on me...may get one yet

Just thought I would hash this up, but my AT's spokes are nicely pitted on my 2016 AT, so off to a dealer tomorrow to get some stainless steel spokes fitted!!!!!

Dropped my "re-spoked under warranty" wheels off at the dealer today as they are just as badly pitted as the original spokes were. I am assured they will replace them with latest spec wheels with SS spokes this time after the debacle of using original spec spokes on my previous warranty claim.
It must have cost mr H a lot to replace full wheel sets over this issue because the dealers get billed over £1000 then have to reclaim it later from Honda.
It all seems so pointless when you can get a better set of wheels from RR for similar money
