New Go Cruise Throttle Assist To Be Released

New version gets updated material and construction

Go Cruise Throttle Assist

Not every bike we get to test has a cruise control, and there are definitely times we wished we could quickly fix that problem, especially on touring models. So we're looking pretty closely at the new Go Cruise Throttle Control, which bills itself as a "clever, simple and elegant solution to relieving stress on your wrist on long motorcycle rides." The Go Cruise is supposed to install on your throttle grip in a few seconds, with no tools needed. When you reach your desired speed, you push the Go Cruise down with your index finger until it rests on the brake lever. The Go Cruise claims to have enough grip to hold your throttle in place and take stress off your wrist. To reduce speed, you simply roll the throttle off manually to override the Go Cruise.

This product has been around for a little while, but for 2014, the manufacturer has re-engineered the device for improved performance. A new, proprietary polymer blend material and revised cross-section allegedly gives the new generation Go Cruise increased grip, strength and durability. We've asked for a sample, so you'll see a review from us shortly.

The Go Cruise retails for $19.95, and is available in 2 sizes to fit motorcycles with 7/8 inch and 1 inch handlebars. The new generation Go Cruise will be available be the end of May, 2014.
