In gear sitting still if you release the clutch a bit while not touching the throttle it kicks the rpms up a few hundred all by itself.
Try it again...it happens before you get to the friction zone. So fully depressed and just as you initially release it.Strange, mine does not do that. If I am behind other cars going through the guard gate, I am holding my badge up for the guard with my right hand and let out the clutch just inside the friction zone to get rolling up to him and it never increases RPM, but drops just a touch (as expected and just like my 2010).
By design from Honda helps prevent stalls getting a heavy bike moving from a dead stop.
