Speed, navigation and battery information is projected onto the windshield directly into the rider's field of vision. Other information is available on a screen right below the handlebar. Through this screen, the rider can communicate with the surroundings and other vehicles.
The handlebar gets programmable and touch-enabled buttons to allow the rider to functions without having to lift his arms from the handlebar.
