"almost zero engine braking"
You have got to be kidding me! I'm not sure we have the same bike.
My 2014 is obnoxious with regards to engine braking.
Engines make for very expensive brakes and it's too easy to unsettle the chassis for my tastes. I'm going to do an ECU flash to smooth out the on/off throttle efi issues and to REDUCE engine braking.
To each his own...
