Great no redline, we can take this baby to 10,000 RPM+! I wonder if I'll make it off the dealer lot before it explodes?

You see a LED right under the '6' on the rev counter.

That's the shift up light and should come on a little (eg. 500 to 800 rpm) before the rev limiter cuts in.

You're supposed to light it up regularly if you drive the car 'properly' :D

(after being run-in correctly of course...)

Bye, Arno.

Nice guages! Pure 'n simple.

Ducati leaves the redline off as well. We'll have to keep our eyes trained on the up-shift indicator...:)

I think after driving the car for a little while you'll know from the engine sound when it's time to shift. I never use the upshift light on my car.

Plus it's written somewhere but I can't recall it. Anyone remember how many RPM till redline on the US car?

Specially on bikes, you look down to ride the RPM (this does not include keeping and 'eye' on the RPM peripherally) you're somebodies hood ornament. But there is a reason that RPM guages get the primary position.
