  • GPS - a Honda branded (more expensive) Garmin Zumo 550
Note: Honda developed a motorised screen for the 2008 model year and it was shown at the Bike show at the NEC in late 2007 where only one bike was on show for them to assess rider reaction.

The main reaction at the show was that it was an expensive option, and the fact that it had to be specified as a OEM fit in manufacturing has meant that (as far as anyone knows) the one at the show is probably the one and only one in the UK. Honda stated that it wouldn't be a dealer fit, which is their way of saying it's not a straightforward retro fit and it's not shown on any official Honda parts microfiche, which is a good pointer to it being something that never happened.

The price Honda put on it was (I think) around £365 plus VAT... Personally I don't think it was the price that killed it, more the fact you had to pre-order and wait for Honda to build and deliver the bike and at the time they were moving production from Spain to Italy so weren't keen to be held to delivery times.
