welcome...
check your coolant relay. It could be malfunctioning, and/or disconnected.
It is right under the tank on the throttle side.

Hello and welcome

Hope you find a fix, but as Kamran said...check the relay first

Hi,
as suggested check the fan is working ,I think its a 15 amp fuse.

As your bike has only 168 miles it may have been overfilled ,both my bikes run with the coolant level close to the min mark,when filled to the max mark they will just pump the coolant back out down to the min .

Same here. Remove some of the coolant until it is just above the MIN mark when cold.

Yep it sounds like the dealer overfilled it. It's one of the little things that annoys me about the MV as I don't like the levels in my cars or bikes being at min. Do keep an eye on your fan if your bike runs really hot as I have seen pics of some that have melted.

Rocket...melted? really?
I know it gets hot up here, I have heard of leaving fan running once ride finished, but melted?
