I would assume it's because your bike gets a first service at 600 miles .
And it just a reminder .

123 + 477 = 600 miles = 1st service. RTFM

As has been said on your current light.
For the future after your 1st service when they reset the light (and after each 6k service on reset - dealer or DIY) the light will similarly come on after riding 5500 miles giving you notice of 500 miles to due 6k service. :028:

Ditto what everyone else has said.

You'll notice that the 477 figure will count down to zero as you put more miles on and get closer to the 600 mile (service time) reading and will then start counting up to show how overdue you are. Until (I think) you go 500 miles over, at which point I think you might just get the service spanner to remind you of your neglect!
