Completely normal. I actually do alot of clutchless upshifting when I am feeling lazy or "opening it up". It is easier to preload, then slightly roll off throttle and roll back on when acclerating hard. The 'Strom transmission does pretty easy clutchless upshifts, but so far hands down the easiest bike I have ever done it on was my 2010 Kawasaki Z1000 naked bike... that bike had such a sweet transmission...
