Statistics for the graph above:
SET Speed: 103.18 KPH
Effective Cruise control is all about TWO things - speed holding, regardless of terrain AND human comfort. There is nothing worse than nausea induced by constant speed corrections you can feel. While the speed plot demonstrates the cruise constantly seeking to maintain SET speed, the accelerations 'look' uncomfortable, but in reality, you cannot feel these corrections being made to maintain near constant speed.
Below are the statistics for the acceleration in the graph above. Note these data come from an MCCruise installed on a Yamaha MT-09 Tracer which has an extremely sensitive throttle - the 889cc high-torque CP3 engine produces 93 Nm@ 7,000 rpm, with maximum power output of 119 PS @ 10,000 rpm. 213 kg wet weight.
