some car don't have a Temp gauge, only a indication LED on dash that will come up if temp is out of range/High.

Maybe this will come with a later software update if required or a potential problem with bikes overheating.... or someone will hack the TFT display and add itlike they do on phones/GPS unit aka Jailbreak ..lol

It doesn't show intake air at all either. Or ambient temp. The other bikes with TFT have the ambient temp in the bottom left.

My GT has ambient temp, and I really like having that info. Also has coolant temp. As for the new RR, I absolutely do not understand not having that information available on the new bike...it's a "must have" bit of data...couldn't live without it on my '17. Weird.

There is no such thing as an unbiased review flyryder, especially on a forum. Also, there are so many different uses of this bike. Do you think 650ibÂ’s review from his type of riding will garner positive feedback? Check out his YouTube channel. His is real world from his perspective.

Perhaps I didn't make my point clearly enough. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

What I'm interested in is the people I've described, evaluating their new purchase...a purchase made with their own money...not for a magazine, not for a business...not for a "blog"...just for them. I don't need to divide the types of ownership into "different use" segments...I want to hear what "real owners", regardless of the kind of riding they do, have to say about the new bike.

With enough "reviews" from REAL owners, with a multitude of riding styles and "uses", any biases will become apparent and can be filtered out.

Who the heck is 650iB, anyway? Sounds familiar...is it/he a blog, a business, or a person?

Thank you.

Being a bit sarcastic about 650ib reviews. Some will consider it a real world review. He does ride his bikes. He just happens to street race on the highways of Cleveland.

All reviews are biased - whether through 'commercial incentives' or simply rose-tinted glasses/prejudices, or even lack of sufficient experience of other bikes to enable the reviewer to be objective.
