No pics of the new screen on the website and I want to know if it's decent.

I've no problems with mine. Good clear display. Does 'hunt' a little when the sun is out and you are riding in and out of shadows but that's not really a criticism.
Easy to scroll though the menus. 8)
Quite a few videos on YouTube reviews of the 2017 bike.
Easy to find if you search.

CEREC, do you have a '17??
Your signature shows a '15 and a quick search of your posts doesn't reveal a '17 purchase.
I'm curious because it would be fun to hear an owner-of-both's impressions.
My '14 still runs like new and I'm not really tempted but.... :twisted:

My only gripe is if you wear reading glasses the info in some areas is a bit small.

Well spotted. Ive amended my signature. :D
Hard to give a direct comparison as I had a six month gap between the 2014 model and 17 one.
New model has a way better looking dash. Easier to access the electronics via the tft dash IMO.
Quick shifter is very smooth. Nice to have a USB socket under the seat. Metzler tyres are great.
Only done 800 miles to date so not really opened the bike up yet. Been waiting for 5 months now for the full Akra exhaust system.
