I have heard of wire brushing new motorcycle tires to get the glaze off them. It's tedious work.
Or, you could find an empty parking lot, put the bike in 2nd gear, and ride low speed circles and figure 8's, while progressively leaning the bike over farther and farther, but staying at low speeds while doing so. That's what I've done, and it seems to work fine. Check your air pressure first. My V seem to work best at about 2 psi below what's recommended in the manual. I don't ride with a passenger or luggage, so I don't need max pressures.
