    For $80-90 bucks you can get a license plate mounted rear view camera from AutoZone yes the screen is small and not the clearest, but it works.

    There are two good solutions: gentex auto-dim rear view mirror w/ lcd ($250) plus camera ($15+), 3-4 hours install. There is also a $500 device that allows the camera image to show on the mft screen, more involved installation. Both work when the backup lights are activated. I own an ST and went with the mirror. It pays for itself considering my wife will run into my motorcycle less often.

    There are already some aftermarket options starting to trickle in. Apparently you can make use of the existing wiring harness, since it's the same as the Titanium. You buy an aftermarket camera and then install a piggyback control module onto the MfT, and voila, you get the rear camera onscreen when you put it in reverse. Costs $750-1000.

    You could also connect a small Android tablet running 'Torque' to the OBDII port and have an alternate rear view. Again, camera connected to stock wiring. Then there are wireless stand alone systems, etc.
