I complained about the 'mushy' just coming off idle when starting to move throttle response after my ECM recall replacement.   My bike now is easy to stall just off idle when starting out, that was not the case before the ECM replacement; it was almost impossible to stall the bike. 

Triumph had me go to a shop and have the dealer verify all was as it should be; it was.

That does not change that I feel the off-idle throttle response was crisper and safer than it is now...

They will not listen to one person.  If I could produce a number of folks who feel similarly it might help.   I will continue to beat on them about it if I have some support in numbers....

I kind of have the opposite problem. The test bike I rode was an '13 and it was much smoother transition than my '14 bike which should have the new ECM. I can't reach the cruise control without it changing speed before I get it set.

sorry, meant the response just off idle when starting from a stop...  Added some language to try to clarify that...

It's softer, but if it had been that way from the start I wouldn't say it's bad.  It's just that that initial 1/4" of throttle doesn't do much.  It is definitely smoother than mt ST1300.

I had an ST before the TTSE too..  Throttle was wicked fast.  Hard to hold a constant speed on the road..  Almost bought a Throttle-Tamer for it.

Really preferred the throttle response with my original ECM....

Mine was different. Not worse, just changed. Took a few minutes to get used to it. It caught me by surprise first time out too.
