This Stradale had no fuel gauge on the dash
but also no "choke" lever, button, or whatchamacallit on the throttle.

Did I miss another Stradale useful part?

to show low speed handling for tyro bikers
making the idle higher was certainly a clever trick on granpa's bikes.
Could be better to teach for the actual generation of bikes and bikers on how to use different engine mapping or customizing existing maps.
Changing idle speed on a fuel map isn't a quick & dirty cheap chinese made screwdriver job.
I like the engine mapping idea and I have answered questions regarding it on courses, it's not in the curriculum but it could be. What are your thoughts about the variancy in this technology?

I would leave ECU mapping out of any new rider classes...they don't even need to think about such things, just staying alive and uninjured is hard enough.

Your bike's ride by wire throttle precludes any idle speed adjustment. The ECU controls idle speed and will over ride anything you do to change it.
