2016 Hyperstrada speedometer off?

I'm wondering if anyone else has had issues with there speedo being off. When I go past local radar my speedo says 37 and the radar shows 33, I have done this on several different radars and they all show the same margin of error.

Yes. Speedo is consistently high. Mine is about 8 percent.

Can't use speedo healer or similar because of bike's electronics.

It is intentional. The percentage is called out in the 821 owners manual, and likely in the 939 as well.

as far as I know, I think all motorcycle speedo's will read about 8-10% high.

Just makes me look all the more honest when I tell the cop my speed I guess since they won't think I'm lowballing them :-D

I haven't looked at the speedo since I installed the DP Garmin GPS.. which conveniently sits immediately in front of the factory speedo. Garmin is dead on every time.

Speedometer error will change with each tire selected as different brands have a slightly different diameter. I rely on my GPS.

My unscientific observations indicate a 5% to 7% off-set based on random GPS comparisons and using stationary Radar speed signs. This is typical of all bikes I've ridden and tested.

Does the owners manual state the exact percentage of speedo off-set built into the ECU?

As stated correctly, ALL manufacturers off-set speedo readings optimistically, usually between 5% up to 10%. But ODO readings will be accurate (providing tires are stock size)

So far, I've hit 130 mph indicated on my HyperStrada. So I guess about 124 mph actual? Not bad! Wind blast about ripped me off the bike. (this done prone, head down under screen) I think in calm weather could have gone a bit more. Did not note RPM.

Anyone done top speed testing? Results?
