    a new and different issue (suspension)

    Well the intermittent red light on the dash, proved to be an issue with the preload adjuster on the rear shock. The fault code it threw up is no tin the workshop manual but Aprilia UK acknowledges that this is a problem they have seen before. A new electronic package for the exhaust is now on order. Fortunately the bike is still usable in the meantime.

    My 2016 Rally is also being repaired for a rear shock pump malfunction. Not rideable. Is it normal practice for a manufacturer to extend the factory warranty by the number of weeks that your bike sits in pieces at the dealer's service department?

    ADD faults are normally indicated by all the preload icons flashing on and off at the same time. If it's not doing this I don't think it will be a suspension fault.

    What he said. And the steady red with 3 suspension icons flashing simultaneously in my case was the pump and controller. Being changed right now. I read somewhere else that one other possible cause was the front brake switch, but i dunno

    Yes I've got the occasional flashing suspension icon. Just waiting now to see how long the spare part takes.
    Why is your bike unrideable? Mine is apparently ok to ride.
