^^^^ I like bikes like your ST 1300 where you can take off with finesse clutch and hardly any rev.
Like all my other bikes..........My NC requires a few revs that’s all.
I’ll learn to live with it. .......BTW,I never stall bikes from a start until the NC.
Interesting. I grew up with small bikes. I was never able to start without adding some throttle before I test rode the C14, FJR1300 and the ST1300. I suppose it is all relative to what you are used to.
