Just my humble opinion.
Yes, that and the distressing amount of torque in all gears; it's very disconcerting to constantly be first pulling out from a light, and frankly it's embarrassing; I find myself slowing down to let other bikes catch up. I don't want them to somehow feel inferior and or think I'm a snob.
