I am probably in the minority but I actually like the new tach/speedo setup. It's very minimalist and if this bike rides the way I think it will, you wont even be looking at it. Check your gas, maybe your speed in a slow zone and thats it. I love the look of all-digital gauges at night especially. Needle tachs don't look as good and are harder to read at night unless lit properly. It being to the side is also kind cool. I'm one of these guys who likes futuristic stuff though. Also a GPS in the middle would be a perfect combo I think. A lot of people I ride with use their GPS for a speedo anyways and barely look at the stock setup.
