Bike Leaning to the Right When Coming Off Throttle

    Hello all!

    I’m about three weeks into ownership of my new 22′ Vitpilen 401 and new to riding motorcycles – It has been about 10 years since frequently riding dirt bikes – and I’m noticing strange handling behavior with the Vit.


    When I’m cruising along at speed and let off the throttle, I can feel the bike want to lean to the right and notice my body weight compensating; my head is no longer in the centerline of the bike and is over to the left. If I lift my hands off the handlebars slightly (still off the throttle) the bike really starts to lean right.

    I’m going to ask the techs at my dealership to give it a spin to check it out.

    Has anyone else experienced this behavior?

    The fool

    Mine does the same thing. I’ve thought about taking it back and trying out the warranty. I’m interested in seeing if anyone has a solution.
