Nope, less than 30miles. This is ridiculous...

Clean the pistons in the calipers and see if it stops.
Use soapy water and then a light coating of brake fluid and work the pistons in and out.
Remove the excess fluid from the pistons and re-install the pads.

I have front brake noise (high spot) which can be heard when pushing the bike around the garage or in traffic, not even applying the brakes. The dealer changed the front wheel, rotors and pads but it did not cure the issue. They have now changed the rotors again but used the wave type rotor. Problem is now solved. The original rotors are not good enough (possibly made of chocolate), the bike has done less than 600 miles, never seen a track or wet weather. I think that either the material or design on the original rotors are not man enough for the job. Hopefully I can now start to enjoy the bike! Hope this helps and wishing you all good luck!

Yep. My 2016 made that noise the very first day, and it continued until I replaced the front rotors with the PP wave rotors.

That's incredible it worked for you two. I changed to PowerParts Galfer wave rotors and the noise came back after the first test-ride I took with the new pads and rotors. Bummer. Oh well, I'm about done pouring money into solving this issue. The wavy rotors look give the bike a nice look though!

Well I changed wheels too, so if the mounting surface was a problem, that mounting surface is no longer in use. But the noise went away even with the stock wheels.
