One huge upgrade IMO was the addition of the Ohlins steering damper to my 2016 model. It's made the front end feel absolutely planted.

And there's considerably less wobble when accelerating out of corners, and during quickshifting at higher revs.

I've found that the quickshifter on my bike is at its smoothest when used within a certain rev range. At lower revs it might be a little clunky but still works. But it really seems to smoothen out under acceleration and at the mid-high rev range.

Welcome to the club.
After owning all different types of bikes from Blades, Zx, GS etc, this is definitely " the one".
Just get out and enjoy it mate ( albeit when we get some decent weather).
Fling it in dynamic mode and revel in the glory of a fantastic bike. The 9k wheelies are addictive!!!!

"The 9k wheelies are addictive!!!!"

I remember after getting the rev limit removed I tested the bike. Smooth roll-on and above 9k all of a sudden the front end starts coming up :) Just a little but was fun.
