None of my questions ever seem to get a real response but I will try again. Hope springs eternal. Anyway...

On the throttle by wire comments poolside made a while ago... You mention that the new LC gs is throttle by wire and mention it masks poor response by not letting it happen... Lets distinguish between throttle grip and actual throttle bodies. Does this masking imply the speed at which one can move the grip is somehow governed or is the throttling done within the electronics? If just in the electronics I see no real world throttle grip response to remain unchanged. Rider experience does not change right?

Speaking purely from a physics perspective... taking into consideration cable friction and electric mechanism to fire the injectors and ignoring any "throttling" of the throttle... which solution is faster in getting the message from hand grip to fuel in the chamber?
