Had similar with my '08 V, yesterday for the first time it died while riding. It was just after I left home, so it was still cold, two stopstreets from my house as I'm cruising into the stop the V just died.
I have felt stuttering before, and even asked the guys to check it out on my recent service, they couldn't find anything wrong. Normally happens when the bike is still cold, lean into the first few corners and the bike feels like it gulps, which is bit uncomfortable cause the sudden power loss makes the bike want to lean down further and slow down.
Because it happens when the bike is still cold I am not too concerned, suspect it is just the flow control for the automatic choke (I'm not technical ok ;-), so I'll call it the auto choke) that is misbehaving.
