Yes - twice I have had the bike not want to restart after riding a while then shutting it down to take a break, probably vapor-locked due to heat? First time I killed the battery trying to get it restarted, the second time when it was obvious that it wouldn't start, I waited a bit then kick started it. (to save the battery for possible later start attempts)

I have only been able to do the one ride so far as the engine was running so poorly that the bike is now back at the dealer for repairs. It has been there for 2 weeks with no resolution in sight.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
