Most bikes will have some error, but it is usually around 5%. Could be due to the tyres you have installed. If they are a different size to the stock tyres, then more than likely, the calibration will be out. Dealer may be able to fix it, but you will have the same problem again if you change to different tyres. Easiest solution is to remember what the error is and ride accordingly.

It seems to me that the brands built bikes with increasing speedometer errors from year to year. My previous XT1200Z, he too showed the speed with an exageration of 15 km/h around 150.... I bought a speedometer/healer, a little gadget that corrected the value to true speed. Costs about 100 euro, but not available for AFrica Twin until now

The review last week in Bike (or was it MCN) showed over 10% error (overreading), which to me seems way too much.

What are you moaning about!, it will mean your 60,000 mile bike will only have actually done 51,000 miles and your mpg will always look better.

At the risk of sounding a plonker, are the speedomerer and the odometer linked to or separate from each other? The speedo over-read might be deliberate to avoid excessive speeding...

If it's like all the other bikes I have had, then this isn;t true. The odometer is always spot on.
