Motogadget Vintage Motoscope Tiny
Revival Cycles procured and now carries these very fine Motogadget gauges that are known to be the finest available and are all precision made in Germany by the notoriously precise Germans. Several of our complete custom projects are now sporting these fine pieces and impressive they definitely are. We all have our own reasons for wanting the simple look of a single gauge, but why give up function in the process? These gauges allow you to have it all: high tech function with the simple, minimalist look of a single gauge on your custom project.
This is the very special series of the Motogadget Motoscope Tiny line called the Vintage with a dial in a Streamline Design concept. All gauges are antiqued by hand to give them an old, used and vintage finish. The bezel and pointer are made of billet brass and also styled with a used-looking, vintage patina. All of these gauges looks slightly different and unique because of the technique used! This is the perfect gauge for all old-school custom builds.
The Motogadget Vintage Motoscope Tiny is a very small analog instrument indeed. (We can send reference photos if needed). It measures speed digitally and indicates it precisely with a stepper motor and a pointer.
Functions: Speed indication up to 200 km/h (or mph) by pointer - speed higher than 200 is displayed numerically in the LED display (km/h or mph), trip odo (km or mi), total odo (km or mi), maximum speed (km/h or mph), on-board voltage, time, and 4 LED-indicator lights.
Ingenious technology makes the classical look possible without compromises. The dial completely gets by without display cut-out and LC-Display. The display of digital values is achieved from a LED display that shines only in the switched ON state from the back of the dial. Thus, the Motoscope Tiny is unobtrusive and integrates seamlessly with a classic style while using digital technology to provide all the info you'll need.
This is the perfect solution for those minimalists searching for a small analog speedo without losing function.
The robust aluminium billet housing is made on CNC-machines, brushed and black anodized. The bezel on top is billet brass. The housing is completely waterproof and vibration resistant.
Display and Dial
The beautiful analog dial in black and white is illuminated with white LED back light. Behind the black part of the dial an LED display is hidden which is only visible during operation. When the bike is switched off you cannot see it. To get best readability in the dark, dawn and sunlight, the brightness of all LEDs is automatically dimmed to suit its surroundings.
If the max analog scale is exceeded then the speed is displayed numerically in the LED display. Integrated in the black part of the dial are also the four indicator lights (blue, ret, yellow, green). Also they are only visible when illuminated.
You can change the display and setup the instrument with one push of button at your handle bar remotely if desired. The standard default display shows the clock. All other values like odometer, trip odometer, and maximum speed can be displayed with one push of the button. Also with this button you can reset, adjust, and perform setup operations. Your setup and specific values will be saved in the Motoscope even if power is lost.
Thanks to the small size of the instrument, the Vintage Tiny Gauge can be mounted anywhere easily with two threaded holes (M3) at the back of the housing. There are several brackets available to install it. Further brackets will be offered in the future.
Wiring and Sensors
Each gauge has reverse-voltage protection and a simple wiring and the detailed installation and operation manual makes it easy to install. Included is a high-quality speedo sensor made of stainless steel that is very small as well (M5/23 mm). It has a cable of 1.5 m length and can be installed easily on the front or rear wheel.
The Motoscope Tiny is also compatible with most original speedo sensors (Dry-Reed and inductive proximity sensors). In some cases, the gauge can even be connected without the need to install a sensor. An intelligent 'Learn-Function' enables the instrument to calibrate itself when riding the bike.
The 'mst vintage' is only available with a brass bezel and brass pointer.
