New BDCW ‘Throttle Control’ Cruise Control for KTMs

Another innovative design from the folks at Black Dog Cycle Works (BDCW)

Published on 11.04.2014

Black Dog Cycle Works’ new Throttle Control was created to save riders from wrist cramping and fatigue on long pavement hauls between their off-road adventures. Further, “We designed our Throttle Control to be extremely rugged and user-friendly so it’ll hold up to the heavy pounding and battering KTM adventure bikes endure,” says Kurt Forgét of BDCW.

Early product testers claim that the BDCW Throttle Control is easy-to-install and out performs all other designs they’ve used. A unique click on/off feature provides positive feel and positioning-taking the guesswork out of setting the proper drag. The design allows the rider to increase or decrease speeds without disengaging the device, as well as easily override for emergency situations.

Riders who experience the often debilitating wrist pain associated with manually holding the throttle open for long periods will appreciate BDCW’s new device. And, without having to fight the throttle 100% of the time, extended slab rides will be far more enjoyable.

Available exclusively from Black Dog Cycle Works. MSRP pricing for the BDCW Throttle Control is $160.00.

“I tried out my new throttle control by Black Dog Cycle Works, it’s much better than my Kaoko, and is fast to use — just roll the ring forward a 1/8 turn and it’s on, then roll it forward or backwards to release it.” — Doug Matson on  ADVRider

Hi David. Most likely yes, but why would you need this when the 1290 SA already comes with electronic cruise control?

Hey Peter. Looks like Black Dog is currently out of stock on these. They expect to have a new batch in stock in the next 6 weeks.
