Light control

Headlight control
This function allows you to reduce current consumption from
the battery, by automatically managing headlight switching-
At Key-On, the high beam and low beam lights are off.
When the engine is started, the low beam lights turn on
automatically; from this moment, "normal" operation is
activated: it is possible to switch between low beams and
high beams (with button 13, fig. 4) or "FLASH" the lights
(with button 13, fig. 4). If the engine is not started at Key-On,
the lights can be turned on by pressing the button on the left
high beam / low beam light switch (button 13, fig. 4); the low
beam lights are turned on the first time it is pressed; from
this moment, the same button can be used to switch
between the low beam and high beam lights (if the engine is
not started within 60 seconds, the low beam or high beam
light that were turned on will turn off).
If the headlight was turned on before starting the engine with
the procedure described above, the headlight turns off
automatically when starting the vehicle and will turn on again
when the engine has been completely started.
Turn signals (automatic reset)
The instrument panel controls the automatic reset of the turn
After activating one of the two turn signals, they can be
deactivated using the RESET button (14, fig. 4).
If the turn signal is not "reset" manually, the instrument
panel will automatically switch it off after the motorcycle has
travelled 500 m (0.3 miles) from when the turn signal was
The counter for the distance travelled for automatic
deactivation is activated at speeds below 80 Km/h (50 mph).
If the calculation of the distance for automatic deactivation is
activated and then the motorcycle exceeds a speed of
80 km/h (50 mph), the calculation is interrupted and will
restart when the speed returns below the indicated
