Not sure how many of you have ordered the BW dashboard for our 701’s. I placed my order back in March, so it’s been a pretty long wait for it.
Just got their email giving us all an update. They are saying they discovered a bug during testing, something was happening when the dashboard would hit the 950 miles mark. They didn’t say what, but if its bad enough that they had to delay all shipping, it was probably pretty bad, like maybe the dashboard would just go blank or something of the sort.
In any case, I am glad they want to deliver a flawlessly working device, even if we have to wait a little longer. I rather they figure it out, than suddenly while riding my screen suddenly turns upside down :D, haha.
If you have ordered a dashboard let us know!

Feb. replied to that email asking for proof that the dashes aren’t vaporware. As all we have been getting is vague responses. And delay after delay. Of course no answer. Then get a Black Friday sale email the next day.🙄December 24, 2021 at 5:12 pm #36489
Alright, well woke up to an email from Badwinners, (Finally!), where they are announcing having finished all debugging of the 701 dashboard!
They are starting shipping and all orders world wide should be fulfilled by January 10thJanuary 7, 2022 at 10:24 am #36579January 21, 2022 at 2:20 pm #36793
yep! here is mine!!
I LOVEEEE ITTTT!!!!!!! it had given my 701 a completely new feeling! its AWESOME!January 28, 2022 at 7:47 am #36852E.A. WootenParticipant
Looks great! Few questions if you have a minute.
Any installation issues or trouble with the menu after installation?
Did the ODO remain set?
Is it fully reversible to your knowledge?January 30, 2022 at 6:48 pm #36874
Hi, i have one too. I had no issues with installing and little drive. You have to set up ODO and if you wanne return it, miles/km are saved on dash (originall/BW) so if you turn back you have less miles on it. With that in mind, it its fully reversible.January 30, 2022 at 6:49 pm #36876January 31, 2022 at 4:15 pm #36879David BrazilParticipant
Dashes are now being recalled and being requested to be sent back to BW.
At least some dashes, including mine.February 13, 2022 at 7:43 pm #36948paulmatthijsParticipant
What’s the reason for the recall? I’ve been thinking about putting in an order (and having daydreams about combining it with an CarOS implementation) but a recall doesn’t help with that obviously.February 13, 2022 at 8:18 pm #36950
It was a small number of svartpilens (12) that were shipped out.. they said something about traction control button .but seeing as how I was one of the first to order but last to receive. I think the svartpilens we’re the last to be made. And probably accidentally got rushed shipped out without the original fix. I believe the 701 doesn’t have the 401 super moto mode.so I have no idea why the program would be different from all the vitpilens. In any event . This shouldn’t affect new ordersApril 3, 2022 at 5:32 pm #37184DCMnPAParticipant
I have a 2019 Vitpilen 701 and am seriously considering purchasing this bad boy. Does anyone know if the recall problems have been fixed and units available? Turns out I’ll be in France for a few weeks late this month early next and the idea of having it shipped to the France address is very appealing……… (US here)April 3, 2022 at 7:32 pm #37188
Mine was fixed and shipped back.. as far as in stock. Your best bet is to contact badwinners directly. And I’m pretty sure a V2 version with USB is not even in the works.
