TBW is a great idea when it works well. You getinstant no-lag (or programmed lag)response and a light but positive feel. It's not all rosy though. I've had to replacepickup sensorsand foot transmitters in more than a few cars, Renault and Fiat usually and there's a lot to be said for good old-fashioned simplicity that you get with cables. On motorcycles you would have the additional issues of waterproofing the components, especially at the handlebar end. But if anyone can do this, I'm sure Honda can.
Don't forget that once the elecronic parts go into mass production, they probably would be cheaper to make than the traditional throttle cables and pulleys.
