fly-by-wire throttle tech

so Yamaha has had this fly-by-wire tech for more than half a decade now. this is the tech that replaces the throttle cable system with electronics. it's the future, ladies and gents. not sure if they are still putting this in any sportbikes nowadays, but i would like to see this in the cruisers. i know harley has put it in their CVO model but not sure of any other cruisers or makes.

why don't we already have this in all bikes now? which other bikes have this? with bike makers moving towards fuel injection over carbs, you know, embracing new technology and the future and all that, i would assume this fly-by-wire would be integrated at the same time.

I never looked close at an R6, does this contraption eliminate the push/pull throttle cables?

Be carefull what you ask for, you may just get it. This fly by wire tech stuff can and is very expensive when it breaks. Oh well I guess I'll have to trade in my tool kit for a multimeter

Cruisers are so 80's compared to sport bike technology.
