I have heard good arguments for both sides. Personally the only bike I bought brand new I followed manufacturer spec but I voted for the other option cause that one sounded better.

my opinion: no modern engine should require break-in period - if a manufacturer tells me my motor has never been run before - I'll have a problem with it - they just better not be that likely to fail any more...

I'd also love to understand how a constant speed could cause any problem at all on a new motor... modern manufacturing methods leave a lot less 'wiggle room' in any of the connections, and metallurgy has improved way beyond needing break-in....
