Anyone think that the neat rounded TFT display from the new Triumph Trident would be ideal on our ‘Pilens? I think that it’s exactly the kind of display that Husqvarna should have fitted in the first place.
I think the gauge on the ‘Pilens is one of the worst features of the bikes. It looks like a cheapo tamagotchi. The way the rev counter numbers aren’t back-lit so aren’t visible at night. Or the fact it resembles a yoghurt pot lid. Mine is full of condensation too. Hoping the Badwinners TFT kit will be available at some point soon.
I think the whole point of a display is that you don’t have to spend seconds figuring out what you are reading, it has to be glance intuitive so you are not distracted from riding. All digital displays suck in this respect.
Me, I only look at the pilen display to read the mileage which I reset after fueling up.
Of course this is valid for road riding, if you are scrambling you can do without any display….
