For sure having the engine braking the way one wants is a big plus. For me I like it a bit heavier. I grew up on 2 stroke flat trackers with a compression release. Probably no one here even knows what that is. But it makes engine braking very pronounced, and when you wanted to "back into a corner" there was a little lever and you could make the back end come around hard. A lot like using the rear brake but more controllable, and on many flat trackers we moved the shifter to the right and the brake to the left, so mostly our rear brake was unusable and there were no fronts.

Just to add my opinion/findings to this. When I first rode the bike, I turned engine braking on(light), I found the bike very twitchy on and off the throttle, even whilst breaking in at low revs. After turning the KEBC off,things changed very much for the better. Will be staying off!!
On my previous 2017 H2 it didn’t seem to be such a massive difference,but it does seem the 2019 is more highly strung.

No arguments from me young man, its all about riding experience, we are all different and want/expect different things, I was trying to point out that engine braking can be used as a tool to go faster

In fact, breaking is a term that you dont here to much in racing, deceleration is what its about, controlling corner entry speed is the key and engine breaking has always been part of the "jigsaw"
