I don't have a digital speedo (2011 DL650), and I'm glad. I don't like them. Digital readouts are more fatiguing than needles on a dial. It's the price paid for more precision. With a needle on a dial, a person can see at a glance, with very little thought, that they are within a narrow range of where they want to be. With digital, the rider has to focus enough to see and interpret the number to get the information they need.
Not something you'd notice on a short ride, but after many miles and hours, it is one more fatigue element.
Might not bother everybody, but it's not for me.
