The R1’s TFT (thin film transistor) dash is, for example, the standout of the group, as it offers easy-to-read information regardless of the sun’s glare and is easier to navigate than any other display in the group. On the BMW, changing riding modes, settings for ABS, traction control, or heated grips is easy enough, but digging into the main menu for making changes to the suspension is more time consuming, plus the mass of information on this year’s larger dash is more difficult to make sense of at speed. Similarly, the Ducati’s TFT dash continues to be difficult to see during the day due to the color of its background and the almost-always-present reflection of the steering damper. Adjusting settings for each of the electronic riders aids is relatively easy using the buttons on the left clip-on, though still not as easy as with the R1’s click wheel. The Ducati also requires some forethought, as you can’t adjust individual settings on the fly unless you’re in Race mode. Even then you can only adjust one predetermined electronic system (wheelie control, engine brake control, or traction control).
