I have the same '18 ATAS dct that I bought 6 wks ago but not a really an experienced rider. I got mine to help deal with living in stop-n-go traffic in a big city of 3M, but if I lived anywhere else I would have gotten the clutch. My previous R1 had a lot more hp closer to 200hp like your Buza and ZX14, so I think you might get bored. I see mine like a big scooter that I will never have to worry about false neutral shifts again. It's big and pretty, can do wheelies and off road with the right settings, and has a soft cushy ride. But at my age and abilities, it's perfect.
Dct has had some probs with clogged fuel filter from factory causing it to stall, much about it in the forum, though I didn't know it when I bought mine. Not a big deal but tank must be removed to put a new filter and clean the tank.
