That is the same as asking why would you do clutchless upshifts. I guess you'll have to answer that for yourself.

And clutchless downshifts are just as easy to do on S1000R

Well, for one thing, make up your mind if you are asking a question or not. For another, there is no need to get offended or to become offensive.

Cheers, just ride and enjoy.... :305:

Maybe,but surely you would give another colour a try :187:

Exactly! Bearing in mind they're both retired and have 3 cars between them. It must only have a few thousand miles on anyway.

I have only ridden my S for 100km and absolutely love the Shift Assist.

I do not feel the same way about down shift assist.
I love rev matching and pulling in the clutch.
I sorta gauge how well I did after each down shift.
Did I get the rev match right? What about releasing the clutch at the right time...
When we make espressos, there is such a thing as the golden shot. Its when you got all the variables right and pull the perfect shot.
I think down shifting is the same. Variables like rev matching, when to release the clutch and when to roll on the throttle. Like an orchestra.

I would not walk away from buying a bike that had one but I feel I would only use it 10% of the time - when I'm feeling lethargic after a long ride.
Although lethargy & S are rarely uttered in the same sentence.
