Uk bike magazine had a 1600 mike demo bike throw something solid through the crankcase and sieze the bike. Bike returned to DUK for investigation

I Ride: 1199 Panigale, S1000RR, RSV4 Factory
I wonder if they forgot to do the first service and it burned up all the oil?

Yes read that issue of BIKE magazine. Scared me...though it was a base model...it still should have not happened!!! Wonder what caused it?Something punched a hole out through the lower crankcase. Photo shows 1199 panigale on top of a pool of oil...

Darn...I hope its an Isolated case!
