I still think as a percentage of bikes out there, it's pretty small.


Didn't like nearly EVERY 990 have the subframe crack?  (I know frame is slightly more hectic than subframe, but still)

I am also seeing this making big headlines. But there is only about 2 instances that I know off creating the panic

True.
I like taking people on on facebook, a lot of the time the ones with the most to say don't even have an adventure bike. It was the same with BMW's stanchion issue

Yeah online things get distilled to seeming way worse than they are.   Most of the people riding these bikes aren't on forums etc, and might only go onto a forum if they have a big problem. So the forums show disproportionate amount of issues I reckon.
