It might seem like a luxury, but like a few of these aids, once you’ve sampled a lovely colour screen, it’s hard to go back again. Bikes like the Yamaha R1M, Kawasaki H2SX SE and Honda Fireblade SP have these mini-flatscreen TVs now, and they generally have different road/race display modes
They often have lean and pitch readouts, so you can store your maximum lean angle, and see how hard you’re braking with brake pressure displays.
They do make it much easier to set up stuff like the electronic suspension and riding modes on the R1M and Fireblade SP in particular.
Do they make you faster? No, but they do look massively cool, which is nearly as good… PROS – look amazing, your mate’s old Blade doesn’t have one CONS – cost a fortune and will be expensive to repair when you chuck it up the road THE RECKONING? GOOD AIDS – better living through technology.
