The Triumph speedo's are all 10% high, too.

There must be a perfectly logical explanation...

VStrom speedos are so consistenly wrong that a guy makes a living selling replacement faces that are adjusted to be correct! However, according to my GPS, the odometer is accurate. I guess Suzuki decided that we're better off riding slower.

Funny, my Harley speedo is GPS based with an atomic battery keyed into the prime meridian, in fact the Engineers at Royal Observatory in Greenwich where my cousin works as a winder call me up from time to time to ensure their clocks are still accurate

It seems Harley's Best, F*ck the Rest applies to speedometers as well........
