Some have had problems with the rear wheel bearings. There is also the cush drive in the rear. It's a rubber hub that connects the sprocket to the wheel and sometimes a little silicone or grease will quite it down or your drive belt may be too tight. Good luck.

How many miles do you have on the bike?

My 06SE made a squeal from the rear (could hear it at certain speeds). I mentioned it to the service guy at the 1000 mile service check and they realigned/re-tightened the back wheel/belt and no issue since then.

Sometimes the dealer performed 1000 mile service can be worth the price (also had them check the front end/steering to cure the wobble issue above XYZ speeds).
