You don't need all the shit on the speedo anyways, it's like all these people who want gear indicators to tell them which gear they're in........ you don't need it because you should know. My fave addition to new bikes is not being able to ride with the stand down, I always used to go out in a rush and forget to put the stand up but now it just cuts out if it's down.

What is done all the time in IT these days, is including Price versus Performance in the reviews.
Seems same should be applied to bikes in all reviews as the belt tightens....,
