I'm sure this has been beat to death, but for some reason I expected the speedometer on my 2012 DL650 Adventure to be more accurate, I guess because it's digital not analog. It appears to be about 10% "optimistic", the same as my last two V-Stroms. My previous Kawasaki was the same.
I can't remember the logic behind this. I think I've heard something about legalities, lawsuits or something of that nature. That doesn't make sense to me though, especially given that every car I've ever owned had speedometers that were right on the money (within 1 mph) compared to radar or GPS.
Anyone know the "logic" behind this?
