Talon X
134 miles on mine and horrible transmission whine at 4500 rpm over 35 mph. Just checked sub trans oil and no show on the dipstick.
Taking it in to the dealer tomorrow for first maintenance. I will have check, fill, and document the issue and post their response here.

My 2017 1000-3 LE was noisy too, but after about 150 miles it has gotten much quieter. 20-25 mph with no windshield, no problem carrying on a conversation.

Update! Got my machine back today. Sub transmission was indeed 8.0 oz low! They drove it, heard it, documented it. They then told me as a dealer they check them now and have seen enough of them from the factory to have to back charge Honda for the quarts of oil they are going through at setup!
Quiet now though.
