Quickshifters sense or nonsense?

What is a Quickshifter and what is its purpose?

In a nutshell, a quickshifter is an electronic device that causes the ignition to be briefly interrupted (is in milliseconds) so that you can upshift without having to use the clutch. Perhaps more importantly, you can upshift without having to close the throttle. You can just keep accelerating at full throttle while upshifting.

So what is the point of this? Maximum acceleration because you can keep the throttle fully open. Actually only useful for track use, there you want to accelerate as fast as possible of course. On public roads, it is primarily a fun addition to sporty driving. Let’s face it, most modern (sporty) motorcycles are more than fast enough to get along nicely in traffic. But we still often want just that little bit extra, that which makes motorcycling so much fun.
