If you are talking about tire temperature sensors, it has them. They are built into the pressure sensors and before displaying the tire pressure the EMC compensates for the temperature. Otherwise you would see tire presures of 50psi when hot. This is done so that you can see that if your tire pressure was 40psi when cold and the display shows 40psi after riding for a while that the pressure is normal.

Tire Temperature Sensors

If you are talking about tire temperature sensors, it has them. They are built into the pressure sensors
and before displaying the tire pressure the EMC compensates for the temperature.

I know the following.
________________________________________

Tyre Air Pressure Sensors System

*To warn riders of any tyre pressure irregularities, tyre pressure sensors are fitted as standard equipment (a first for
 a motorcycle).
*The system allows the rider to monitor tyre pressure while underway. When tyre pressure falls below 220 kPa, a low
 pressure warning is displayed. The ability to take into account temperature changes and display values recalculated
 for 20°C helps prevent false warnings when air expands as the tyres warm up.

Is the temperature in the tires displayed on the instruments? :smile

No you cannot see the temperature or true pressure. Only the corrected pressure is displayed.
Thank you. :smile

The temperature is not displayed on the instruments as expected.
It is said that the instruments indication is different depending on the model.

I wish the instruments could display it. :rolleyes
