I feel the opposite to this . I tried a Can am DS450 with thumb throttle and hated it. Coming from dirtbikes I always use a twister. The Motion Pro is better quality than the Streamline one. Tried both , the cable on the Streamline was junk.A couple of my friend use twists throttles, but they don't have a 700xx... They seem to like the twist, but not for me... too much like having a loose hand grip (uneasy feeling/feels un-secure/not solid)... But, that's my take on the twist throttle.
