Vibration while decelerating

I have a 2017 RG with only 740 miles on it. I was riding a couple days ago and the bike began vibrating when gearing down for a turn, while letting the gearing slow the bike down. You can feel it more in the floor boards, but also in your seat. I have not felt that before and I am thinking maybe a lose motor mount or something else loose. Any help would be greatly appreciated. runs and rides smooth while accelerating and at cruise.

Thanks in advance!

ABS Module

Just for every ones information I took the bike to my dealer and the vibration was caused by a bad ABS module. It was causing the brakes to pulsate when decelerating causing the vibration when gearing down. Hope this will help someone later.
