The throttle response on my wife's 2016 Icon is a little too, shall we say peppy. Apparently that is normal in the early version of that bike due to the throttle tube and that the throttle tubes off a 2017+ and the Desert Sled are a little more progressive, softer, and dare I say gentle. She would definitely prefer that. I have heard that some people with the newer bikes are looking for the older tube so here is your chance. I'm in NJ but travel throughout NY and New England often so if you are in the area we can meet up to save on shipping.
