I don't think you understand what I am saying. All this is absolutely fascinating but a bit irrelevant. Throttle position is just a rheostat that feeds the signal into ECU, you can assign any number to it. With a motor as superior in power as Ducati's, one could come up with a mapping that imitated the response of the Harley motor to a fraction of percent, at higher RPM of course. It's a simple mapping table of turn angle of the throttle to the power output. Yes it will grossly underutilize the potential of the Ducati motor, and is unlikely to find many buyers, but it illustrates how inferior and antiquated Harley motor is. That's what suspension is for. If the weight was an advantage, Ducati would come up with bolt-on 100 lbs led blocks to enhance comfort.
