'16 HDX 500 SXS Oil Smell

I have a new 2106 500 HDX SXS, less than 130 miles and have had it in numerous times now for a Oil smell once it gets warmed up. It smells like oil leaking onto something hot yet there is no oil leaking onto floor in garage and I am not seeing any smoking. I also had the Vehicle Speed Sensor go out now.... Any one else having issues?

Welcome to the forum. See if the crankcase vent tube is still attached to the air filter housing, next do a visual check of the areas around the cylinder for leaks. I had a cylinder base gasket leak that blew oil mist all over the drivers side while running, but it never leaked on the floor.
