Engine Cut-Out?

I was coming off the free-way at about 75 and was in fourth, or fifth gear. Usually, when the road is open I pull the clutch in and just coast and let the engine RPMs just wind down. However, and I was truly scared at this point because this bike is new to me and I guess I may not fully understand it.

After coasting for about a few hundred feet towards the light, I kicked it down a gear and the engine instantly died, clutch still pulled in however obviously still in gear. I looked down, all lights were on everything was good so I put her in N and pressed the start button and she fired back up, dropped her into proper gear for my speed and moved to a safe spot to collect myself, and the shit stain on the seat.

What just happen? I have no idea.
