I wouldn't even consider adding a damper until you're ruled out all other causes, otherwise you might just end up treating the symptom and not the underlying problem. With handling issues, I always start with tires/wheels (inflation, condition, proper rotation direction, balance, alignment, bearings, etc.). Maybe check pre-load front and rear after that -- maybe the front is getting too light at high speeds? Steering stem bearings properly adjusted? On a brand new bike, you wouldn't expect certain things like wheel bearings of course, but you never know what happened on the assembly line or during dealer prep. I wouldn't hesitate to get the dealer involved if necessary since it's a safety issue.
