I have to concur with Graham. Gas Oil gets in oil in two primary ways- through worn/defective piston rings or defective injectors that don't close. In either event, gas in the oil is not "normal," most especially in a brand new bike, and acts as a solvent to thin the oil.
As a for instance, my bike is almost 15 years old, 45+k miles, and I have never had the smell of gas in my oil.
