Tachometer/Speedometer SIP for Modern Vespa

Created by Ralf Jodl at 17:11 on November 14, 2016

The SIP speedometer / rev counter replaces the standard, very sparsely equipped speedometer with a real multifunctional device. The speedometer impresses with its large analogue display for speed (up to 160kmh) and rpm (up to 16,000 rpm). The speedometer needle thus shows either revolutions per minute or speed.

The lower digital display can show a choice of 18 functions. These can be switched at the touch of a button. In addition to the standard functions such as analogue / digital speed display, trip & total kilometres, temperature, the speedometer has an analogue & digital rev counter, digital fuel and temperature display, accelerometer for distance and speed measurement, average speed and many other features (see function list).

The backlight can be selected from eight different colours. The brightness can also be adjusted separately. Before each restart, the instrument performs a complete self-test.

The speed is measured as originally via the speedometer cable or can be transmitted via a digital speed sensor. The appropriate sensors are available as accessories.

A set of cables for connection to the vehicle is included in the scope of delivery. This is connected between the speedometer and the wiring harness. Everything without soldering, simple and uncomplicated.
