When you decided to buy the less expensive bike BMW had to cut the cost somewhere. All the instrumentation you said you don’t have is on the expensive version, except a gas gage and I don’t fully understand that, your almost sitting on the gas tank. If I’m questioning how much gas I have I just look down the fill spout into the tank. You have a Spartan motorcycle with little to go wrong or break. After you ride for a while you should be able to tell what gear your in just by the way it sounds. Having all those instruments isn’t going to make anyone a better rider, it’s just going to make a more expensive motorcycle that’s boarder-line to much already …..The only big no I see on the nineT is the lack of instruments.
Come on, no gear indicator, no fuel gauge, no rev, WTF????
My husqvarna Svartpilen has a small round dash (electronic) and all is there.
Ideally, I'll like the analog for the rev, speed/gear/range/fuel on the LCD, there is room for that.
