You might look over at NomadNation (or something like that) or KawaNow forums where Nomads and such have not had cruise control for a while. I know of 2 guys that have something similar on Nomads so perhaps there are discussions about it?

I'm assuming by the video that it wouldn't adjust your speed to compensate for change in road conditions like incline/decline and such, is that so?

It will not compensate, but in the locked position you can still adjust your throttle to maintain the speed. It is great for giving your hand a break when you need it. Not so good when riding with a group.

Looks like it would work fine on a long flat road, but you would go slower and faster through hills and valleys.
Had something like that, built in to my 1968 Triumph. It was useful, but not as good as a full out cruise control. Hitting the brakes won't release it, so in a panic situation, it's not so good, but you can force the throttle down, even with it engaged.

Hitting the brakes will release it.

Hitting the rear brakes. It's cool how it works and works well but not better than true cruise control if the bike is capable of that.I used to use mine...
