Am i missing something here?

After all the new MV models for 2013 begin to turn up on the net,
i thought i was missing something. My MV dealer told me a while ago that the new Brutale 1090's were about to get the ride by wire too.
After reading the tech specs i didn't found that info anywhere.
The new Brutale 800, the new F4's, the Rivale 800 all have them.

Not that i'm a big fan!
(i read the F3 and B3 are having a bit of problems with it)
Why change something so good for the unknown.
As i am looking to order me a 2013 1090R next month i've got much interest in this case....
Had a test ride on a Tuono V4 and it gave me a hard time with the throttle response (slow reaction) so don't want that to happen on the 1090.

Someone else found some more info about that?

Man i would hate to have the "Toyota Prius uncontrolled acceleration" problem on a motorcycle.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

I wonder if they pulled the ride-by-wire technology from Harley-Davidson ? ...the big blocks have had RbW for 4 years ?
