I would like to see fly-by-wire throttles with an adjustable tension.
Cars/airplanes have been doing this for years now successfully.
I have carpol tunnel in my right hand and this would make things far better for me.

Would you believe Harley has this on their big bikes? All my Goldwing friends are up in arms about it because they think Honda should have done it first.... the 2012 wing has it now too...

I hope you realize all the flap about Toyotas that couldn't be stopped or took off by themselves was about drive by wire throttles.

I'm just sayin'.

I'd be happier with large, soft grips and electronic cruise control, like I have now. I guess since we have kill switches, drive by wire throttles wouldn't hurt.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
