Does anyone have a better understading of the fuel readout on the scrambler?
It has 2 ways to communicate fuel level to us. One way is a range readout on the LCD display that shows how many miles are left. The other way is a gas light comes on when you hit reserve.

I would prefer a good old fashioned E---F gauge, but the range will work just fine for me. Here is the LCD display:



We will learn all the stuff it does once people get their hands on them.

This is the real gauge and it is very different than that in the image.
You are correct, they are quite different. I hadn't actually studied the details. I was google image searching for a good exact photo that showed the range numbers, but couldn't fine one, which is why I used the pre-release gauge photo above that's been widely circulated.

For fun, here is the high res version of that zoomed in:

And the phone icon above it.
I did some contrast fiddling on the image above, and those icons are still there. Who knows if that's actual functionality or reserved for future use though.

Also, the phone icon with the check mark that's in the upper right of the graphic shows up under the SMS icon on the real one.

Do you think that these functions is "On" when the phone is connected with the usb port under the seat?
Or... these functions are for the future bike that have in common the same gauge?

:eek:

That, my friend, is the big question. I would guess that IF it's actually a function on the Scrambler, I would wager it was bluetooth since it's very cheap and easy to implement, and it's ubiquitous. I don't even know if SMS and call managing over USB are a thing?

Since there has been literally ZERO mention of bluetooth or phone connectivity other than the USB charger under the seat, I'm guessing it's not activated or not a feature. I mean, come on, they are marketing this thing to the connected generation, and they don't mention that feature? I can't see this being a surprise feature that wasn't mentioned at the Land of Joy.

I'm being pessimistic because I really want it, but don't want to be disappointed.

Also, side note, the graphic says SMS, but I'm pretty sure the real gauge says MSG in the bubble. Not that it matters. :)

Well done super snoop, exciting stuff and fantastic if all available but as you say it might be for future but thats not to say it cannot be retro added for the early purchasers ie simple software upgrade.

Well done :D

I found a two connectors which were plugged under the seat when I removed my fender. Not sure what they are for and haven't checked the wiring diagram. Must be.for accessories like heated grips and such. I will try to post pics but my phone and this website don't play nice

There is a 'trip fuel' odometer that comes on with the fuel light, showing you how far you traveled since passing reserve level. I think you have maybe 50km / 35 miles. Pretty useful. Don't blame me if you push it and run out of fuel though!
