Haven't seen that one yet. There is a viable option for aftermarket gear select display, which I'd rather have. Actually been wondering if swapping a multi control panel would be possible, as it has fuel gauge and gear indicator.

the count down fuel minder isn't ideal, but I would say the Strada has a very consistent burn rate. I don't always drive it like it's stolen, but I know the worst mileage I'll get and you can easily set a "no more than" mileage point.

The multi control which have fuel gauge is the Multistrada but some reported is not accurate!! Ducati managed to built good bikes but what happen to the simple instrument like the fuel gauge? Even a Honda Cub have fuel gauge for GOD SAKE!

I'd rather have a fuel gauge then a gear indicator? Still never crashed my bike from thinking I was in 3rd but actually had 4th...

R6 chase- good point! I just set the trip meter and know that at about 110 miles the light will come on and the miles will start counting up- and theres still more than a gallon in the tank to burn.

What about the average consumption readout? That's a sort of fuel gauge if you do the math. If I'm taking it easy, it hovers around 55 mpg. If I stop at 110, I can only get 2 gallons in so that display seems fairly accurate.

I would be wary of running it dry, that's bad for the fuel pump. But yes the light seems a bit overeager.
