MV Agusta Computer - Seriously?

The bike is top notch. It has really changed my idea of what a bike is capable of, damn near perfection. So why is the computer interface the worst I have ever seen? Its a tragic thing to do to such a othwise beautiful machine. Am I the only one who thinks this system is overly complicated?

Press set for four seconds then press the ok button for two seconds then press it again for less than four seconds until the trip appears then stick your left foot in and shake it all about.

Maybe it makes sense if your Italian?

That's the end of my rant.

I'm Just Say'n !?!?

Ridiculous aint it? Finally got trip reset worked out, top button 1 long 1 short press, bottom button long press x 2. I have to get the book out for anything else, TC is set on 4, had it cut in once that i know of, on a wet road, very subtly & smoothly. Apart from that I'm loving my 1090!

Awful! and it doesn't even follow the manual instructions, not a bit. To the point I asked the dealer if this manual was for that bike...
Should a trip reset take more than 2 secs???
Shame as it is such a lovely bike!

Welcome to the world of Italian electrics and logic - it's called character...
Still putting a smile on my face every time I ride though.

From my point of view, the one thing I really miss is a clock. It is easy to lose track of time, particularly when my usual haunts are across 2 different time zones (daylight saving). It's not nice salivating over thoughts of a nice pub steak and chips, only to arrive to find the kitchen closed.

....What IS the story with no clock.....my 7 year old F4 has one???

I go for regular LONG rides and I like to know what time it is or how I'm travelling.

Thanks for that. I have been looking on the bike for a place to do something like that.
