Those with the 2013 models... does yours smoke ?
Just thought I'd ask the question, as I know it was such a worry on the 2012s... do any of you with the 13s notice a lot of smoke during start up?...

can't answer for the 13s but i think this was overrated even on the 12s. i don't think my 12 ever smoked and only recall a few people posted about it here.

Every 1199 that came out of the dealer here, smoked. I saw several of them in person.
It's a non-issue regardless. The reverse is actually true, I'd worry if it didn't.
If yours didn't smoke then keep a very close eye on it, there have been a number of bikes that haven't smoked which have had to have the entire engine replaced because they seized.
Apparently not smokin is a sign that the engine isn't lubricating properly and this can manifest itself several thousand km later.
Tickin time bomb!

Mine is a 2013 and now has 1500 miles on it. Had a puff of smoke a couple of times in first 2-300 miles but not a sign since.
Guess that means mine is terminal and I need a new engine soon ;-)

Damn, I'm going for a ride on my non-smoking bike this weekend. Better pack a spare engine!

I guess I'm screwed then. Mine has never smoked. Mine is a 2012 and I bought it in September.
