Is This Loose

Rebel 500 ABS - has 200 miles on it. Just noticed this getting off the bike today. Is it supposed to be like this? Is something loose?

If you bought it new from dealer, have them tighten it and double check all the parts they put on after unboxing.

I sent a message for the salesperson last night. I’m waiting to hear back. The dealer is about 45 miles away and I’m not really wanting to drive it that far for them to tighten it.

Actually you don't want to ride it at all with it that loose. You need an 8 mm Allen wrench to tighten the mounting bolts. Once tight, take it back to the dealer and have them go over the entire bike.
