Is it possible to program the digital display to show MPH permanently. the analogue dial is graduated in mainly in KMH, MPH is in smaller graduations inside and is hard to read while travelling.
The manual says you can get it to display MPH, but the translation has been done by an Italian so overly complicated and impossible to follow.
Help please

many thanks Maggie, it seem to indicate it will not read out instantaneous indication of speed.
It will however record what my maximum speed has been during the previous journey, and whoever wanted to look that up.

think you are right, how hard would it have been to make it show speed, it records everything else, stuff you never want to look at, but speed, no way, bloody Italians

I know a lot of people in the uk have purchased small gps digital speedos and retro fitted them or they use a sat nav. This is also very useful if you wish to change the gearing  because the standard speedo set up will be wrong with any alterations . The other part of the dash that's pants is the fuel gauge ,my first clock set would do 150 miles on 1/3 of a tank according to the gauge ,but showed empty by 165 miles yet there was still 30+ miles left . The new one is better but I now rely on the trip instead . These are shared across the range of piaggio brands .

So far the gas gauge is working just fine. I get @ 10ltr when it's on 1/4 left.
