The handlebar grip and their controls have been with us since the beginning if time. Even Fred Flintstone when riding his Stone Harley used his right hand to turn the throttle, and the left hand to press the clutch lever. After so many years of doing the same, shouldn't we at least have a think about it?

Well, one company in Corsica (France) did exactly that. They devised a new and very astute way of controlling your motorcycle (or ATV, snowmobile or jetski). For example, to accelerate your motorcycle today, you turn your right hand, putting more fuel into your motorcycle's engine. The Inoveli Open Inoveli in a new window way you don't turn your wrist, but you press your thumb. That's it, just your thumb. Like this photo:

There are many advantages to using this method. In fact, it's brilliant, since not only do you use less energy (in long distance rides, or in sports this will make an enormous difference), but it is also safer. Your fingers will ALWAYS be on the brake lever, and not what is currently the case, as time not at full power. If you use your "old" method of using your wrist, if you have opened the throttle fully, your fingers will either not be on teh brake elver, or at minimum force. And then when you do need to brake suddenly, you will lose valuable time.

Here's a little animation I did:

As you can see, it's your thumb that does the work, quite easy. Just push the lever, which is spring loaded, so when you remove your thumb, the gas line is retuned to the off position.

The throttle system is called the FV01 (which would mean a 02 will be made... right?). It's very innovative and looks like this is a very good alternative for the conventional throttle systems. You would think that the electric motorcycle manufacturers would have been the first to flock to this system since they are all mostly in a "GreenfieldIn many disciplines a greenfield is a project that lacks any constraints imposed by prior work. The analogy is to that of construction on greenfield land where there is no need to work within the constrains of existing buildings or infrastructure" development exercise.

The throttle system is used nowadays in motorsports like motocross, and even in this year's Dakar, one bike was equipped with the system.

The price is €229.90 and the throttle system can be used for motorcycles, ATV/Quad, Jetski and Snowmobiles.
