This reads like you had unrealistic expectations for a midweight sport-tourer. Linearity for a tourer seems like a great idea, and being a bit down on acceleration compared to sportbikes without touring goodies should be expected in that category - it isn't nor should anyone expect it to be an FJR or K1300. Compare it to a DL650, perhaps (Similar wet weights and missions, both without luggage), not a monster 796 or ninja 1k.
