Some manufacturers are using a special break in oil. My buddy's KTM had that and we broke it in Motoman style and just left the oil in until the 600 service. Now he just has trouble with wind buffeting and keeping gas in it. BMW and Honda don't use that so I don't worry about it. I wouldn't doubt that your break in process had mostly to do with the clutch. Triumphs tend to have good clutch feel and that's usually attributed to materials.
After watching production videos and the way they run the bikes on the dyno to test them I stopped worrying about the break in issue. I do, however, load the engine smoothly and avoid jerking the throttle around, which is a bigger issue. Today's materials are so hard and well finished that you really can't hurt the motor unless you lug it or drone it on the freeway before break in. As a typical example, my GSA didn't stop burning oil until after I ran it hard for 24 hours straight from Lincoln, NE to Sacramento, CA and at that point it had 15,000 miles on it. Air cooled motors are a bit different though. I didn't understand how hard you had to run that motor for the rings to fully seat which is partly why it took so long.
