I have an NEP on the V-Strom and a Vista Cruise on the Versys. Granted, the universal model is different, but if you are expecting any significant differences between the plastic in the NEP and Vista Cruise you'll be disappointed. IMHO, the Vista Cruise (not universal) has a smoother operation, the NEP always requires more deliberate action to disengage. See this thread.I had the Universal Vista Cruise on me old TransAlp and it worked great but looked kind of cheap and nasty.
Well that's interesting - I had a 2001 Connie and put a Throttlemeister on it. The Throttlemeister was OK, but too expensive for what it accomplished. I didn't find the Concours that boring (for what was essentially a 1986 motorcycle) but it sure was a lard-ass. With the stock Versys weighing it at 400 dry vs. the old Connie's 600 dry, its easy to see why the Versys is more fun to ride. The Vista Cruise looks good and is priced right.I had a Concours with a Throttlemeister and just hated it. Love the simplicity of the little thumb switch. Of course the Concours was a lard-ass anyway - most boring bike I ever owned.
