The OP said his 2017 Trophy had only been ridden for 1200 miles
so I doubt very much whether it had an Oil Change and the “wrong”
oil was put in by the previous owner !

I think it’s more likely to have been for the reason already explained,
but this does ( also ) highlight the importance of using oil of the correct specification.

Semi or fully synthetic 10W/40 or 10W/50 motorcycle engine oil
which meets specification API SH (or higher) and JASO MA,
such as Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) engine oil,
sold as Castrol Power RS Racing 4T 10W-40 (fully synthetic) in some countries

My supplying Dealer uses FUCHS Silkolene Pro 4 10W-40
Extreme Protection Fully Synthetic Ester Oil.
