I agree with pffog. And the more complex the product, the more opportunity for issues. Producing any vehicle from concept to production is quite a task in itself. Unless you've been in engineering, manufacturing, purchasing, test/development, production, etc; for something as complex as a self powered vehicle you really don't fully understand the multitude of possible issues. Yes we expect a lot from our highly capable bikes right out of the crate, but humans are involved too.
Never been involved with manufacturing but I imagine it presents its share of challenges. What kind of humans ignore federal recall procedures I wonder...
