No shift sherlock

So I've had my 13 990a over a year now, 3700 city miles. Am I the only one who hates the tranny on this bike? The ratios are fine, but it just is the worst shifting bike I've ever ridden. Almost impossible to keep from going into to neutral from 1-2, mainly when the engine is warm to hot. Extremely notchy feel. Downshifts are difficult unless I partially release the clutch lever. And it occasionally slips out of second under acceleration.

Dealer says all is fine. Has had the Motorex full synth oil since new. Has KTM improved this on the 1190?
