Yes oomD, it's because of the low temperature. As it increases the red line goes up.

Wonder if I can sue BMW, I can prove prior art... I'll settle for a 1250 though...  :ricky:

You guys made me feel guilty so I brought it down slightly  :snorting:
I noticed the redline starting at 5750, or thereabouts. Very low, but I see the engine temp is only 29 degrees. So I assume they lower the redline with a colder engine, and raise it as the temperature increases?

Damn I knew I should've patented that idea when I thought of it! I built an electronic speedometer for my Harley Davidson about 5 or 6 years ago, and the RPM indicator did exactly that! Starts out much lower, but increases as the engine warms up. No, in fact, I did this even earlier too on an electronic speedo I built for my little V-twin Honda steed I had 10 years ago!

Here's muy original thread on WD about the speedo. http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=145048 Notice the first vid has the redline just above 3000, while in the second vid the redline is up at 5300 or so.

My 2002 E46 M3 race car did the same thing when it had the standard clocks before I fitted the motec dash. Definitely not a new idea.

I havent experienced any similar issues.
Only fuel consumption isn't great at 9l/100.

To me this bike vs 1200 lc is chalk and cheese. More power, smoother engine, gbox and shifter.
DR 11 kilos per liter?!!! :o :o

Ja-nee, dit klink nie reg nie - as ek my 1290 moer hard ry, is die swaarste wat ek nog gekry het 7.9l/100km

There's a big difference between riding the bike with full panniers; touring kit (weight) at 405km/h versus bear and solo at 120km/h.
There's a difference (lesser) between reading what the electronic display shows at any point and a manual calculation - try it yourself!

 :deal:

agreed on the panniers and pillion, but I mostly ride without these, but also at high speed - my XT1200 became VERY thirsty at high speed and consumed oil as well - the KTM loves speed and consumption only increases above about 150

I use the bikes computer, but do a calculation when filling up, and they are very close

Ag dammit. There goes my 1250. Now I'm probably going to have to pay for one.   :xxbah: :spitcoffee:
