Technical details of the SIP Tacho Karacho
The SIP Tacho Karacho offers a wide range of features that make it a versatile instrument for scooter riders. RPM can be measured in analog, depending on the model, up to an impressive 10,000 or 16,000 rpm, with the maximum speed being 16,000 rpm. As an alternative to the analog RPM display, speed can now be displayed in analog up to 100 km/h or 160 km/h, while the digital display allows speeds of up to 260 km/h or 160 mph. The speedometer features a target speed indicator by flashing the speed on the display and also offers the ability to set a target distance, which is especially useful for maintenance intervals.
With an adjustable odometer, the speedometer reading can be transmitted and tracked. Additionally, there is the ability to teach gear indicators, use a fuel gauge with level warning, and display temperature in the range of 0 to 250 degrees Celsius or 32 to 482 degrees Fahrenheit. An included temperature sensor allows monitoring of cylinder head or water temperature. For more accurate engine performance monitoring, an EGT temperature display with a SIP exhaust gas temperature gauge from 100 to 1200 degrees Celsius is also possible, as well as an AF display with a SIP lambda probe from A 10.0 to 24.0.
The speedometer also records maximum temperature and provides a total distance display up to 99,999 km/miles, which is adjustable to carry over the old speedometer reading. Individual routes A and B can be tracked up to 9,999.9 km/miles, and travel times A and B can be recorded up to 99.59 hours. The average speed for both routes can be up to 260 km/h or 160 mph. In addition, there is a DC low voltage warning, a maintenance interval indicator, a shift flash indicator, and the ability to adjust the brightness of the speedometer light in five different levels. The fuel, turn signal, high beam, low beam and shift flash indicators round out the functionality of this speedometer.
The SIP Speedo Karacho is not only a precise instrument for measuring speed and RPM, but also a stylish accessory for any Vespa. With its easy installation and high-quality workmanship, it is a recommended addition for all scooter riders who value both technical precision and aesthetics. However, when purchasing, always follow the specific instructions for the personal scooter model to ensure smooth installation and accurate measurements.
