Give these guys a bell and send photos - I expect they should get it sorted fairly rapidly.  Also surprised at your dealer they should have collected the bike and resolved ASAP.  It looks to me like a fitting error.
Time for a fairly firm phone call or visit in person as its keeping you off the road.

Thanks everyone for helpful words of advice. Dealer is going to replace tyre tomorrow. I'll ask them to be very careful as I have been advised (here) that fitting error could be reason for tyre splits.
I will check the new tyre very carefully before I leave the dealership!

Planned Alps trip and booked all hotels on free cancellation basis. Might be glad of that - the weather is grim there at the moment!
