It's a personal preference thing. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that riders who prefer to ride more slowly through sections to maintain control prefer a slow throttle, while more experienced riders and those who who like the ability to quickly respond to more challenging obstacles prefer a fast throttle. For me personally (as an intermediate rider) a slow throttle works well, but I know a number of riders who like a quicker response.

I fitted a normal (fast) Domino throttle assembly to my TLR250 two years ago.
Had no issues with it at all.
I used the fast throttle as both my kids & I have Gas Gas bikes (std fitment) & the one on my TLR could be used as a spare if need be.
You will need to make a new throttle cable to suit though as the standard Honda cable is way different. :?
