Suzuki advertises that ambient temperature is shown in the instrument display but I sure can't find it and see nothing in the manual about it.

On my V-Strom I hold down the scroll button and the time changes to temperature. I've tried that on the GSXS but no luck.

Anyone?

Never seen the ambient temperature readout being mentioned as a feature.

The Marketing boys were a bit excited that day. I can't see where they would fit one, but it would nice. I'll just have to settle for "hot", "cold", "wet", "dry" like my grand pappy before me.

It was listed the same way for the bikes in Canada and I must say I was disappointed that the bike did not have one, although given my love for the bike as a whole it certainly was not a deal breaker.

You only really need two temperature settings. Cold and go! Fan kicks in at around 100 degrees like the gsxr so no need for gazing at numbers.

Just saying : - )

And behold... no emergency (hazard) flashers either? I thought they were required by law. Guess not.

In some countries, it seems to have been omitted. Suppose other countries may have more stricter regulation in this regard. See pics below. Look at the right hand switches, between the cut-out switch and starter button. One F has it and the other not. Strange through that its not easier to manufacture only one variant instead of two. Was actually something that I looked at, cause its very useful feature when overtaking at high speed (when a car moved to the side of the road to give you space), to activate your flasher and not loose any momentum, instead of taking your hand off the handlebar to wave acknowledgement.

From Suzuki Italy:
"The compact, lightweight instrument panel is completely LCD. The functions of the instrumentation, adjustable light intensity, including the speedometer, tachometer, odometer, dual trip meter, gear position indicator, the coolant temperature, the instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption and the 'autonomy, the indicator of the traction control, ABS, fuel gauge and clock."

So, in my country, we have emergency (hazard) flashers but no ambient temperature... At 5K kilometers, I've never felt the need for it ;)
