Instrument Panel
on: October 07, 2021, 07:08:02 PM
Hello, I was just wondering if any one else has trouble reading the speedo when riding during the day? Not long had my Versys and was out the other day but found it difficult to read what speed I was doing. It is already on the highest brightness setting mode. Or if I can change the speedo for a TFT colour screen?
Thank you in advance.

I don't remember ever having trouble reading the speedometer. Neither on MY15, nor on MY19.

You have taken the "protective" transport screen protector off, that should have been taken off by the dealer during PDI  :027:
