LCD display question 83 interstate

Hopefully someone can eyeball this and answer for sure.
Does the temperature display show in the same manner as the fuel display or does it show only one bar at a time.
Here's a pix of the display in question.

I understand that it is a multifunction display..eg,front air pressure,rear air pressure and temp.

I wouldn't have believed it...but after not coming up with a single picture of one on Google, I started going through YouTube looking for people with 1100's in their videos. I found this one:





And from it, I got this screen capture:

So it appears that it IS just a single element, not a rising bar like you would expect.

My thanks to wingadmin for this information.
I never rode this bike before stripping it for a complete overhaul but just expected that the temp gauge would show accumulative bars.
This reduces the issue significantly. now back to the compressor issue!
