I didn't own the bike when it was completely stock, picked it up modded and flashed, so I can't tell you if anything changed post-mods, but I wouldn't doubt a flash improves the "smoothness" as most flashes do.
This is what I'm thinking. I know I said to call me crazy, lol, but seriously the bike would lurch, and I wasn't too happy to QS while moderately leaned in a wide sweeping turn. This is a stock restricted USA model (for you lucky Euro folks).

After flash tune the bike hasn't lurched at all, and I have stronger midrange. This might be in my head - but probably not based on dyno results with same mods.
