No you are not alone! I noticed this same phenomena and what I think it may be is condensation. I noticed it recently when I was washing the bike -my well water is very cold and the air temp was 90F. As I was rinsing the bike I held the hose on the speedo for about 30secs and it was a only a matter of minutes before it appeared again.

So if your washing the bike try to rinse the speedo with a water temp that is closer to ambient temp to avoid this.

Hope this helped.

I was not able to remove it the first time because I wasn't sure what it was at first, I was considering bringing it back to the dealer because I thought the speedo wasn't airtight.

The second time I washed the bike I figured it out -and this time the condensation was what cleaned up the smudge.
I would imagine if this doesn't help clean it up you may have to open up the speedo lens. :(
