I agree, just sounds like you're letting it out too quickly. I don't know about other manufacturers, but Hondas are really easy to take off on, it just takes practice. You can actually just let out on the clutch slowly with no throttle and the bike will go, if you do it right. They are that easy. As far as taking off quickly, like so many other aspects of riding, practice practice practice....
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
