The bike senses movement (like someone is stealing it) and activates the "Smart Security System".
You won't have an actual alarm unless you have the optional alarm installed.

You need to put it in "Transport Mode"

In the transport mode, the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System is armed but the motion detectors are inactive.
The motorcycle can be transported on a trailer without activating the alarm while the starter and ignition remain disabled.

Here's a video how:

And written instructions:

With an assigned fob within range, turn the ignition switch to IGNITION.
Before the security system lamp goes out, turn the ignition switch to OFF.
Within three seconds, simultaneously press both the left and the right turn signal switches.
After the turn signals flash once, the system enters the transport mode.
With the fob removed, the motorcycle can be moved without setting off the alarm.

SOURCE: All the back lights will

If it's brand new, I'd take it back to the dealer and let them fix it under warranty. It sounds like the rear fender subharness is not connected or shorted somehow. A subharness is a wiring harness loom that connects to the main harness and feeds and "outlying" area of the bike like the fenders or handlebars.

Good Luck
