Nice - will be interesting how it performs long term. I also wonder about the touch screen as they are not great in dusty conditions and why the enduro guys avoid them. But maybe behind a screen will be OK.

we currently have/stock the peel off's for those screens, from Wunderlich, similar concept to a cellphone screen protector.
they have anti-glare properties, blah,blah, etc.
(example shown is for BMW, but they are available for most all TFT screens, such as KTM, etc. Oh Boy, Oom Danie is going to have a GOOD chuckle at this accessory  >:D )

Not sure it will make any difference to dust collecting and interfering with the touch effect. But yes, my son Josh has used those on his Etrex's for enduro, especially to minimise glare.

Very interesting that they have put a tablet in there! I would not be surprised if more do it in the future.

That said, is there a seperate odometer? Surely that kind of information has to be more securly measured and stored?

Also watching that video made me prthink of the possible future of Dakar Rally type navigation? Imagine in a couple of years being issued with a tablet for your bike instead of the rally roadbook. No need for printing on paper and the roadbook could be downloaded to the table every day when you arrive in the bivouac or it could even be stored on the device from the beginning of the rally and only unlocks at a certain time. You could programme your own tablet to mark (highlight) the roadboook the way you like every night. Changes could be made electronically if there was a problem like a flooded river. Biggest problem/risk would be reliability I think.

Yes, separate odometer, fuel, temp, tripmeter..

The 'purist' will kill you.  >:D 

We (Alexander and I) tried this many times.  The issue is redundancy.  And then on the ASO events everything is on the Unik II already.  I already developed a fully functional rally tablet that replace all instruments on the bike. (It read the PDF that is sent to the printers.)

To use a tablet as ONLY instrument is actually quite simple.  I've done one for my project bike.  A small interface to the CAN bus record and save everything but also communicate via OTG USB with the Tablet.  Show fuel, Water oil etc.  can also display all diagnostic info.

That is the future no matter how we look at it.

BUT, I am not sure if the AJP is fitted with the standard ODB II plug/protocol.

Also glad this bike stayed almost unchanged from the prototype until it was released. I hope the Yammie T7 will be the same  :deal:

I LIKE THIS BIKE EVEN MORE EVERYTIME I READ ABOUT IT.  will have to start saving money.

** Snip **
OBD SYSTEM
The AJP PR7 model is equipped with OBD system for the fuel injection system diagnosis.
Located on the motorcycle right side, near to the instrument panel, is the OBD connector (1),
which allows to get access to the injection system and its components information.

I can now do anything on that tablet. (I program Andriod devices) >:D

Guys please be a bit patient with me as there is a lot going on in the background before I can answer all the questions. Thks.  These first 4 x bikes are sold already and were brought in to see the reaction and comments which have ALL been very positive.

Just got back from my first ride in SA and it's a great bike to ride. We rode sandy roads with a bit of hard road in between. Very responsive throttle and accelerates well, points where you want it to go, a 108 kg guy gets 20 km per liter, and it feels very nippy underfoot. This bike is something special for sure.

IF this is a normal Samsung tablet how do they get past seeing anything on it in bright light ? Always an issue with smartphones and tablets
