What's up with the double dash? Are they expecting the TFT to fail and therefore offer the other one as redundancy?

Maybe the main dash can be used as navigation screen through the connection with the phone and the secondary one will show info like the speed and the gear when so.

That's probably it. But couldn't they have adapted the navigation screen to include speed and gear? This way it looks like an afterthought.

It's because the TFT is compatible with Apple Car Play, so in that case they have to reserve the full TFT for the Apple device. They needed another display to show basic info about the bike.

The list price for the Adv version is high (Ä19-20k in Italy). True, is a complete package, but pretty expensive. Good news is that, with such an high price on new model, used bikes could be well evaluated.

As Deltabi correctly pointed out, when you're navigating it seams that speed and gear info is removed from the TFT. Hence the need for the other screen below.
