I was wondering how intrusive the software is on the DCT. I know his is not a sport bike but if you are running it through the gears and it nears he rev limiter will it automatically shift or hit the rev limiter like a manual would? Same thing going down. If it doesn't like the gear you are in will it shift down for you?

on my Naked manual trans CTX I was riding this weekend going down hill into many S curves marked 25mph and I was doing maybe 35-45 I noticed a couple of times I downshifted probably into 3rd to get better control and let the bike slow me down but then I would accelerate out and bump up against the rev limiter and the motor would sputter. I just got to learn how to work in a lower rpm range in the twisties.

That's what I was hoping for. I should have been more specific and said in manual mode.

In manual mode, it will not up shift at red line. It will just sit there bouncing off of the rev limiter.

If a down shift will put the engine above redline, it will not down shift.

The software could not be any better.
