I was doing about 100kph pulled up at a intersection, it popped and stopped. Prpb never do it again just a weird thing that happened. I have a Termignoni exhaust on my Classic. Fitted by the dealer..
I have just started to experience a similar problem with my bike.
2016 Full throttle with shotgun Termi's and no engine / exhaust mods (at the moment) currently sat at 1350 miles.
It only started happening a week or so ago at around the 1100 mile mark.
Approaching traffic lights or roundabouts as the lights are turning from red to green, maybe doing 1 or 2mph? Generally give it a quick blip of the throttle then pull away.
However the first time it happened I experienced the same thing as the OP, the bike died. Luckily I was quick re-firing it and pulling away before the car behind me ran in to the back of me.
It's happened about half a dozen times since, but did not stall those times, I just seem to get a momentary loss of power and slight jerkiness, which is a bit concerning when there is traffic behind me.
Normally I ride with earplugs in, so all I heard was the bang from the backfire. I couldn't locate where the bang was coming from, so I assumed that it was from the exhaust?
I rode home last night and didn't have ear plugs in, and it backfired twice, and it definitely came from the airbox or around that area, NOT the exhaust.
The bike did have it's first service this week, and I mentioned the problem to the tech at the time, and asked if there was any map updates required. Apparently the map that was on the bike is the most up to date one, and has been on the bike since I first picked it up 6 weeks ago.
I doubt it's a problem that the dealer could ever replicate or diagnose, as it does seem to be a random occurrence. I've tried to force it to do it a few times now, just so I can try to figure out exactly where it's coming from, but it has been impossible to force it to backfire in that manner.
I do plan on fitting a SC-Projects CRT can in the near future, and will have the bike remapped at the same time. Hopefully that will sort out the ultra lean running and completely eradicate the problem?
I will report back.
That does sound similar.I've had the same issue for about a month now... Usually when I down shift going into a turn and then am giving it throttle out of the turn is when it happens, which makes it super sketchy. No mods to the engine or exhaust. I just turned over 3,500 miles on the bike so first service was done a while ago. It's like the bike burps and sometimes burps and dies, or catches itself and keeps going. It jerks pretty hard. I've seen in another post someone posted theirs was doing something similar and the dealer couldn't replicate the problem. I ride mine daily so I can't afford to lose the bike for a week while they chase the issue and maybe don't even fix it.
It does it when I leave from a stop, like a light or a stop sign also, but I notice it more when the bike isn't completely warmed up yet. Although it happened once when I rode 50 miles on the freeway doing 90mph the whole time and when I exited the freeway and down shifted on the off ramp it died. I was quick with the clutch and kept rolling while I fired it back up.

I'm pretty sure that this problem is somewhat related to the fact that the air temperature measured by the bike to pilot the fule injection is always false. On my bike, it's always 4 or 5° C upper than real air temperature. It means that the EFI will received false informations for temperature and will generate an unappropriate amount of fuel for the real temperature.It does it when I leave from a stop, like a light or a stop sign also, but I notice it more when the bike isn't completely warmed up yet.
I haven't looked in to the booster plug... I'll have to do some research on it and maybe make the purchaseThis is certainly why those who fitted a Boosterplug that decreases slightly the measured temperature don't have the problem anymore.
It's not really an issue.Don't settle for a dealership blaming you. This is an actual issue.
