    Still running at over 2000 revs on start up from cold before settling after 3 or 4 minutes and then idles at 1000. is this normal or will it settle down and stop racing from cold. 2019 model done about 900 miles only.

    Mine does the same (2015 with 57.000km) and has allways done so. I don't have a problem with it.

    Totally agree.

    Around 2k rpm is normal to speed the warm up process, then settling down to normal idle speed of 1200rpm +/-100rpm.

    Remember when we had to do this manually with a choke?
    How quickly people forget and think over-fuelling a cold engine is abnormal.

    I raised this issue a few months ago. I don’t think it is normal at all. I was told by the dealer that it is normal and is due to the type of thermostat used on the engine for warm up and to spend the time while it was revving it’s nuts off closing the garage door and putting on my helmet and gloves. It carries on for a few minutes and the engine gets so warm the fan cuts in. Occasionally it will have a spike and rev up to 3 to 3.5k. In all other respects I love the bike but, having had a variety of Hondas in the past (Hornet, CBF1000, Varadero) I am firmly of the opinion that it is NOT normal and is a fault.

    Biff - 3-3500rpm is definitely not normal. Should be around 2k rpm.

    Mines a 2011 - had a similar problem and had to have the wax thermostat changed. It's buried deep so goodbye £600 - however, still cheaper than a new bike. Dealer said its quite rare, they'd only come across 1 or 2 in the past.
