2016 speed. It has melted?

I saw yesterday cleaning the motorcycle.
I do not think that is normal!
Someone can go look under his lighting of Speed 2016 to tell me how it is ?.
The dealer opens tomorrow.Needless to say I will be at the store opening

I don't think anything is melting - that whole assembly inside the heatsink is potted in - they fill the whole assembly with a resin to protect it from weather, vibration etc. They've just slightly over-applied the potting compound at the time of manufacture. Nothing to worry about.

It looks like the wiring got hung up on a cooling fin and got pulled out when the handlebars went the other way.

thank you for your answers. you were wright .
Indeed, do not look too much under the bikes.
No regulator worries.Mine had certainly been a little damaged during the assembly at the factory.
The dealer picked up one of a new street and put it on my Speed.
no worries.Street is that of the store, for test.
They will order another one to change under warranty !!!!
On the other hand, we are approaching the 1st of April.lol And I do not see the virgin, in the morning when I wake up.

Wish that the future owner of this new street is less meticulous than me and that he does not like to kneel before his bike
