    I think it looks great but not in that Turquoise In the brochure! Turquoise FFS! Really! Turquoise


    Anyway I'm also wondering what oil it's going to use

    I'd much prefer the speedo to be digital. I do more biking in Europe and Africa than the UK and one of the things I love about my XT660Z Tenere is the ability to switch the speedo and odometer to kilometers. The Tenere also has the clocks higher up which makes it easier to view.

    Quite like the 'turquoise' colour, it's quite like the Laguna Seca Blue from my old M Roadster--which I should never have sold...

    Looking at the options a Zumo sat nav mount is now available and to be fair I use this for speed/distance more than the bike speedo.

    It is possible to select two items of info to show on the digital display, maybe one of those is the speed.
