It’s not just the fuel delivery that’s analog in this, the last year before the R1 went EFI, it’s other things too. Even though the classic white tach needle isn’t controlled by a cable like the one in my old Jaguar, you can still pretend it is. And in contrast to the new R1’s fly-by-night fighter jet LCD instrument display, the old R1’s discreet digital readout seems a little ashamed of itself. It only speaks when spoken to, rather than bombarding you with information: MPH, Trip 1 and Trip 2. Not even a clock. I’m certain no terrorist with an iPhone is going to remap my fuel curve or jack up my preload while I’m stopped at a light.
