    Gear Change Indicator

    Hi everyone, new member from UK.

    I have decided a CT is my next bike and have seen a few which I would like but do all CTs, Manual or DCT, 2012 - 2019 have a gear change indicator? Some of the ones I have seen don’t seem to have any space on the display for one and just show the green neutral light on the top part of the dash. Really appreciate any input.

    hi

    both versions have a gear change indicator....its in the LCD dash. For what its worth, my preference would be the DCT version simply because you have the best of both worlds - automatic gear change when you wanit it, and manual control at will. if you buy the optional foot change gizmo, then its even better

    And 10 Kilo's more on an already heavy bike.

    Not sure we should be calling it a Gear Change indicator, its more a Gear Selected indicator. My four wheel vehicles have a green arrow which illuminates advising me I can change up for more economy. I would call that a Gear Change Indicator.

    Thanks very much for your answers. Great that they all have the indicator - will probably be a manual as not many DCTs available here at the moment (well, not for what I want to pay anyway!) Thanks again.
