7. Gear-Position Indicator

While I personally prefer analog tachometers, I will admit the new digital dash display on the 2017 SVs is pretty snazzy. My favorite part of the new gauge cluster, however, is the GPI. No, it’s not a necessary item to have on a motorcycle, but it’s such a helpful tool when riding, especially for new riders. Racers will appreciate the addition too, because let’s face it, many SV owners will be taking their bike to the track, and being in the wrong gear can kill your lap time.
