There is nothing wrong with a drive of any length during break-in. Check the owner's manual for complete details. A couple points of interest.

First 500km
  • Try to avoid heavy braking (ABS)
  • All new tires have a thin film on the tread from the manufacture process, so full handling capabilities can't be completely realised. Try not to drive like on a race track.

First 2000km
  • Vary the revs, avoid staying at the same rpm for an extended period of time.
  • Try not to exceed 160km/h or 4500rpm. It won't kill you if you do, just don't make a habit of it.
