It doesn't change your bike in an automatic

It is just to get you started, when you're "launched", you're on your own

I Ride: Panigale V4S
I've only had the bike for a week, but I'm struggling to get this thing off the lights quickly. The first time I tried, the front wheel launched about a foot in the air in the blink of an eye (DWC on 4), bogged down, and then let me take-off once everything had settled. I've since put DWC on 5, but this morning, bunny-hopped down the road while a mini-bus over took me at the lights lol! I'm still in the break in period, so I'm not wrigging it's neck (trying this at 5, maybe 6k revs).

With my zx10, i just brought it up to about 7k revs and let the clutch out in less than a second, rolled on, and took off with the wheel about 1/2 a foot off the ground.

I'm hoping it's just a get used to it thing.

Not meaning to be condescending, but why bother with launch control if you’re only bringing the bike up to 7k?

Launch control is designed to work with the throttle fully open. Pretty sure the dash tells you to pin the throttle once you have enabled launch control. I don’t think that it even works under a certain RPM

Or with a latte in your left hand!!!!
Isn't launch control for the track?
Imagine launch control at Starbucks, shuck and jive, buck and weave and scuffed Capezio's
