Does anyone else hear a strange noise shortly after shutting off the bike..? It sounds like an old dial up connection and lasts for just a few seconds...  The dealer has no idea what this is, go figure...

It's been christened as the bike faxing home. It is in fact the idle stepper motor resetting.
