Indicator Light on Instrument Panel

So I noticed something that looked odd to me and I'm pretty sure it's an issue...

When I turn on my left or right indicator, the both left and right indicators on my instrument panel flash instead of the side I turned on...

Any ideas? I'm gonna call the dealer I bought it from probably tomorrow.

Totally common on many bikes. It's just an indication that you are blinking, and not where you are blinking.

I guess they figure you should know which way you are turning and to cancel it you just have to push it like a button instead of to the opposite left or right.

I got new rebel 500 this week and one things I noticed is that the turn signal. The switch is a little hard, and sometimes I have to push it more than once to get the turn signal on. The turn signal switch on the bike I used in the riding school was so smooth and sensitive.

Is that normal or should I get it checked?
