R3 moves slowly without touching throttle

Hello this might be a stupid question but I was riding my r3 and slowed down to about 5mph in first gear and the bike kept moving by it’s self without me touching the throttle or clutch or anything. Did the same in second gear. It would keep going at a steady 5mph. Is this normal? I’ve never noticed this before. The idle is normal too in neutral (1,500rpm). So the throttle isn’t sticking or doesn’t seem to be. Drives normal too

Works with cars too. As long as the driveline has been engaged the vehicle will continue to move until the wheel speed dips below the selected gear's minimum speed or the engine becomes encumbered.

TLDR; You can ghost ride your bike.

It's the low-rpm assist. Under a certain RPM (I think it was 3k from memory) and when in gear with the clutch not pulled, the engine increases the RPM to help with taking off from a standstill. What this means is that when coasting, the bike isn't just rolling along at idle, but rolling along with additional air/fuel input. This is why it rolls along much more easily than you'd expect.
