Caps off.

Honda says up to a litre in 1,000 miles can be normal. Call and ask them.

Re: OIL

Is that normal only while the engine is bedding in or normal throughout the life of the engine?
That's not what I'd consider normal for an engine.
I never have to top-up my oil in between changes on any of my bikes or cars - unless there's a serious oil leak of course but I fix those as soon as I discover them.

Re: OIL

Take it to the dealer and have them ask Honda, but that is what they will probably say.
