2013 1199R inconsistent/sluggish throttle response

I just picked up a 2013 1199R and was wondering if what Im noticing is normal or not. Usually when I am blipping the throttle or taking off from a low RPM, the throttle is very responsive and the revs will increase quickly. However, sometimes it feels as if the revs are not increasing as quickly and the bike isnt making nearly the same amount of power. And then after a couple of seconds they will go back to normal. Has anyone else ever noticed this? Any ideas or suggestions?

I'm interested in what you find out about this. I just purchased a '13 1199R and waiting for it to be delivered by about the middle of February.

I have the same machine as you just picked up and from new have never experienced this problem. Always an immediate response from any rpm except for sometimes being momentarily sluggish coming off idle.

My '13 1199R has over 17,000 miles and I've never had this problem.

Hey Steve! You running around with 2 Fast this season?

My 13R never had a response problem but I just have around 3K miles. Mostly track.

Yes, I'll be working with Mark DeGross for 2Fast!

And I'll be racing a KTM RC390 with WMRRA.

It'll be a busy season.

Could it be me interpreting dtc as a sluggish response? It was set to 5 and 195lo.

I doubt it. The dtc, in my experience, is very subtle, very well implemented, even at the higher settings. In the winter I frequently ride in cold, wet conditions with pretty much default "WET" settings with the relatively low power map combined with max dtc and haven't noticed what you describe.
