Oil leak Dragster RR 2019?

Hey guys,
Yesterday night, I was contemplating the beauty of my bike when I spotted some oil on the upper engine, right side.
I am not a mechanic, so it is difficult for me to really identify and describe where it comes from, but I am really curious to find out if any of you guys ever experienced the same.
I will stop by the shop tomorrow to show them, hopefully, nothing serious...

In the meantime, if you guys see this post and have any idea on what it is, feel free to drop a note.

I attached two pics.

If you bought it new from a dealer, take it back and have them check it. 2019 should definitely be under warranty.

Valve cover gasket or hold down bolt seal would be my guess.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

hello!
If the bike is brand new it's surely is NOT an oil leak.
It happened the same to my Brutale at the same position. It turned out to be some grease that they apply at the factory and sometimes they are too generous....

Such a relief to hear that the same happened to you. Thanks for chiming in!

I will still stop by the shop today as it is on my way to work but I am already way less concerned than I was yesterday. Thanks man!

Wash it off with some brake cleaner and see if it comes back !!

We have 2 Dragster 2019's and both are weeping a 'fluid', same position (but not as much). We were going to wait until the first service and get the Dealer to check them. We have wiped the area clean, after every ride and it still comes back the same

So... I ended up stopping by the shop today to show them and the mechanic decided to keep the bike to do some investigation. He thinks it is oil...

I am waiting for them to call me back to give me an update.

This is my first MV, and I don't know if this was meant to be to test me, but one week after I bought the bike and it is already at the shop... damn!

I woudnt be surprised if its a leaky fuel connector.
Similar look to what I had on my F3. And only in a closed small area I would've smell a light tone of fuel.

Dont forget the engine is tested in Varese's MV factory to its limit. Full pressure and load on engine.
Part of quality control and a oil leak would've been spotted there.

*Not acceptable though.

Tell me about it...
The worst: I have not been able to get an update from the dealership today. I called them three times, and never I have been able to know what was happening... I understand that people can get busy, but this is not the way you treat a new customer.
I am pretty upset right now...

Here I am after a week, no bike in my garage, no loaner, no ETA, no apology. I am super frustrated.
