I thought it was only the 2015 model that had the fuel pump issue, so I don't think that is it. A puff of smoke, or possibly steam, could be a lot of things. Some of those aren't anything to worry about. Others are very, very bad if allowed to go on very long. Are you anywhere close to needing a scheduled maintenance? It may be best to get it to the dealer for a checkup even if you aren't.
Do you see any drips under the bike when it has been parked, or anything actively dripping at the end of a ride when the bike is warm?
Have you checked both the oil and anti-freeze levels?
Are there any smells when this happens? Is the smoke black or white? I'm looking for something that might give us an idea what it is.
Beneath the tank lies the entire engine and some wiring. It could be anything that leaks out of or onto a hot engine. Or it could be an electrical issue.
