GET YOUR CLOCKS OUT
Each bike has a different approach: the KTM appeals to the iPhone generation with a full-colour display, while the Honda and Kawasaki have more straightforward designs. The KTM is the only bike with remote mode buttons on the left bar while the others are again more old-school with conventional buttons next to the clocks, which means you have to take one hand off the bar to change the clock display. Each bike conveys similar information but surprisingly the Honda doesn’t have a gear position indicator, and none of the bikes record ambient temperature.
The most conventional switchgear plus an analogue rev counter with LCD speedo. Some of the details are a little small and hard to read on the move.
The four-way mode button allows you to scroll through with ease, and even lets you deactivate the ABS at a standstill. It’s the only bike with this function.
The large horn button is above the indicator switch. As it’s normally the other way around it means the horn often gets pressed by mistake until you get used to it.
