It has it, but not horribly so.
Maybe because you had a bike that was really bad with it, your new FZ-07 seems fine by comparison.

In my opinion, if you liked the Suzuki SV-650, you'll love the FZ-07 (MT-07 everywhere else but the USA).
It feels small, thin, light, and has a very fun-to-use power delivery of low- and mid-range.
