Question for the Testers...

When you test piloted the Street 750 how did you find the throttle? The reason i ask is because I know on the KTM Duke 390 the throttle is quite slack, often needing a double grab to get you into the high revs. KTM says that was necessary to accommodate the snappy response of the engine to the crop of new riders who would be choosing the Duke 390.

This was pulled from a review Sunny posted in another thread:

Eight Things You Will Like About The Harley-Davidson Street 750 - Overdrive

As a novice-friendly, non-intimidating package, the RevX is a tremendous engine because it offers you both impressive torque as well as a friendly, unintimidating power delivery.
So I just wonder if the Street 750's throttle tube is wound slack to make it novice friendly?

Street 750 throttle is awesome. Taken 2 times test drive. I ran this bike 140 @ kmph, still there was left some more acceleration.

Nice! How was acceleration and how was it getting to 140? Did it fast go fast enough from 0-140?

yes throttle is very responsive and you can hit 120 in 3rd gear itself..

0-100kmph in 4.5 sec

It's always embarassing when the mom in the minivan in the next lane at the traffic light floors it and beats you out of the hole. Not that I have ever had that happen to me.

Starting pickup is awesome and I think the top speed will reach to approx 160 KMPH

Why the torque is flat becoz this bike is made for both city and highway purpose.

yea I hear all y'all on the pickup/accel and top speed, but I'm wondering about the actual throttle tube. Is it snappy or do you find it laxer to accommodate newer riders. How much wristcock did you guys see to go WOT? Like i said in OP I know some of the other beginer friendly bikes out there are wound slack, some of them even need a double grab to get all the way open...

Wristcock? Sounds vaguely obscene, heh, heh, heh.
