Default New Engine or Rebuild - GS15R

Hi All,
Just after some thoughts, I have a V-One SII, 4 weeks old and about 10 hours running time. It all went bang today at the local basketball courts. Broken conrod, seems like the crank is bent and the piston has a broken skirt. Not real sure what went wrong, I thought I ran it in well, all seemed fine. It was doing about 3/4 throttle in second gear when it ran out of fuel, not sure if that is the cause. Could it be a warranty claim?

I was wondering if I should rebuild it, at a cost of about $50US or buy a new engine. I dont have a lot to spend.

What do you recommend?
