Do you get the triangle displayed as well?
Page 26 in the Riders Manual has a small explanation of what "might" be the problem.
I would park it, call the dealer and tell them to come pick it up.
That's what warranty is for.
Could be something simple or the ECU is failing, emissions, who knows.
Let them figure it out and get a loaner bike until they do.
Best of luck, and let us know what happens.
Cheers.

Hi T, thanks for reply, no just engine shape light on and amber, I know it saves them turning out with a trany but dealer assured me to take it steady and continue to workshop, I looked in manual on the net and only mentions poss prob with emissions.

Didn't you have a service done by the dealer last week - could be connected if they have not done something properly. I would also check that the battery connections are tight - always look for the simple solutions first.

Yes G service and diagnostic on engine waning light they said nothing wrong but its on again today so have to go back, as I understand code readers tell them what the fault and they fix it, now im asking if nothing wrong why is the light on ?

Now that's very good news and customer service in my mind.
Seems the roadside assistance/towing and warranty all worked out.
