To answer your question of worth, that is something you would have to answer for yourself. I certainly wouldn't spend money on it but I like that my RC390 has it from the factory.

Racing it in CMRA, street riding around here is boring.


And before bevo can make a lame comment, yes it is because my radiator always over flows and my bike over heats.

Was your point the OP should buy a RC390 for the gear indicator?

Yes, or just explaining the worth of a gear indicator to me. It's nice but I wouldn't pay extra.

Maybe you could compile a list of bikes that come with a factory gear indicator

I found a used one like what Patrick recommended. I think I paid 80$ for it and was well worth it for my race bike. The Honda ecu is different than other manufacturers so it takes a quick second to get back to the right gear when down shifting before a turn otherwise it's been great!
