I agree with you about the injection mapping of the 996 cc L-twin as it comes from the factory. The SV1000 has similar hiccups. Fortunately, adjusting the throttle position sensor and fitting a smart timing retard eliminator, removes the drivability issues at lower rpms. I am assuming the same or similar fixes are available for the DL1000. But then, we shouldn't have to fix stuff like this and that is a frustration.
