The motoscope classic
The motoscope classic from motogadget features multifunctional digital instruments in round aluminium casings in a classic sporty style. An attractive dial face and a red needle lend a classic analogue look to the instrument's rev counter, which is powered by a precision stepper motor. The motoscope light also features an additional LCD display and four control LEDs which provide highly precise readouts of the instrument's manifold functions.
This flat and compact single instrument thus offers exciting possibilities for customizing and designing vehicles. The instrument's perfect design and functions are eminently suited to all original, touring and sport bikes, as well as genuine classics, semi-classics and custom bikes of all kinds.
Furthermore, the motoscope classic also fits perfectly in individually styled kit cars, sports cars, quads and trikes. High-quality materials and the most modern manufacturing methods in combination with final assembly by hand and quality control of every single item guarantee superb visual and function-related quality.
The billet aluminium casing is CNC-milled and therefore of the highest quality. The brushed surface is anodised with either a black or natural silver aluminium finish. The casing is completely sealed. The protective cover of the instrument is made of a special, scratch-resistant synthetic material. The flat shape of the motoscope classic means flexible installation in an already existing cockpit or in the design of such a cockpit. The standard 80 mm (3.1 inch) installation dimensions of the device allow for easy replacement of original instruments.
The Analogue Display with Needle and the LCD
Engine speed is indicated precisely by a fine, red metal needle mounted on a white dial face with a range of either 0-8.000 rpm, 0-10.000 rpm or 0-14.000 rpm. An innovative form of background lighting means that a maximum area of the clock face provides clearly readable information in a very compact casing.
Freely adjustable transmission rates of the stepper motor in combination with needle damping make it possible to read the engine speed indication accurately.
The two-line liquid crystal display has a permanent background lighting and provides a high-level readability both by day and by night.
Four ultra-bright control LEDs of different colours complete the instrument. The red LED functions as a general warning lamp when threshold values, defined by the user, are reached. Such threshold values may involve engine speed limits, temperature-min./max.-values, pressure-min./max.-values, or signals provided by OEM sensors.
By pressing a menu button on the handlebar - which can, for example, be converted from the originally installed high-beam switch - it is possible to alternate between the different LCD functions. The first line of the display always indicates the driving speed. All other readouts can be called up on the second line of the display by pressing the menu button. The menu button is also used for entering all specific vehicle data into the device's computer. Naturally, all adjustments or values remain stored when the power supply is off.
Installation and Connection
Generally, the motoscope classic can be connected to any vehicle due to its small dimensions and common installation diameter. In order to make the installation easier, we offer different mounting brackets and assembly accessories as an option. A detailed assembly and instruction manual (English) is included.
Sensors and connecting Cables
Delivery includes the system plugs for all interconnecting electrical cables as well as an approved Dry Reed sensor for speed measurement.
An approximately 1,5 m long connecting cable makes it possible to attach it to the front or rear wheel.
The signal cable for engine speed measurement is simply attached to the ignition coil or spark plug.
Furthermore, we offer sensors suited to the optional measurement of air, oil and water temperature as well as oil pressure.
Versions (software, colour, scale, ignition)
The instruments are available in anodised black, natural aluminium (silver) with engine speed scales of either 8.000, 10,000 rpm or 14,000 rpm. Different anodizing and scales have no effect on the price.
Instruments for CDI ignitions (capacitor ignitions) which are often used in Quads, Enduros, and two-stroke motorcycles have to use an additional signal pickup unit for engine speed. In such cases we would advise you to consult the support page on our website regarding vehicle compatibility.
