This is the all new GIpro DS from HealTech Electronics is a unique Gear Position Indicator. It is designed for motorcycles equipped with Diagnostic System connector – including fuel injected motorcycles from Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Triumph, Buell, Harley and Ducati. While the original GIpro/ATRE is the #1 choice for riders looking for gear position indicator, the list of supported bike models is very limited. Due to high demand for the GIpro, we have developed the DS-Series, which is compatible with more motorcycles than the original GIpro. (Note: The GIpro/ATRE will not be discontinued as the DS-Series does not have ATRE feature)
