Another data point --
I have a 2012 Bonne SE, purchased new in April, 2012. Have had this problem off/on since new, with no pattern that I have discerned. 1st time, attributed to low battery. Most recent time --
Friday, November 23, 2012. Battery fully charged. Temperature in garage where bike lives, about 55 degF. Bike started on first touch of starter button. Rode 3.5 miles @ 40-50 miles to Freeway, then 16 miles @ 70-75mph on Freeway to work. Parked bike. Worked a couple of hours, then went out to start bike to go to lunch. Hit starter button, bike clicked and nothing. Hit starter button a second time, bike fired right up. Rode about 6 miles to lunch. Ate (parked 30 minutes), bike fired right up @ first touch. Drove it two blocks, ducked into a store to run an errand, came back out. Bike fired right up @ first touch. Rode back to work. 3 hours later, came out, bike fired right up @ first touch. I have no idea why.
