MV in Volvo Ad

Anyone happen to notice the ad for the Volvo S80 (at least the one running here in the US)? There's an ad that talks about their "Blind Spot Information System." Shows a guy driving... voiceover says he's about to hit someone.

Motorcycle comes up on his right... system alerts the Volvo driver... cut to close up of bike... and... if I'm not mistaken... it has an MV tachometer.

I didn't get a good look. Anyone else see it?

It's interesting to see how many automobile ads feature motorcycles these days. Are the marketing people trying to get some cache from bikes?

Two CBR600RRs (each faster than Reopropf)
Formerly SPR #257 (faster than Reopropf - hell, even without it, I'm faster than Reopropf)
Louis Marx & Co. 16" Big Wheel (yes, that's faster, too)
