Just want to correct my own post above... The big sweeping dial is the tach. Duhhh. SO the LCD readout can show the speed in MPH or KPH or it can show lots of other data. My friend has this gauge and I saw it last night. It has a remote switch you mount on your bars to toggle through the different data readings. He also bought a super-bright remote mount rev-limit light. There are tons of accessories. In the USA you can buy through Spiegler:

On one hand this gauge seems pretty expensive, but if you compare it to buying a slash 5 rebuilt multi-gauge, it come out pretty similar in price or just a little more.
