Hey, I tried to find the location of the engine speed sensor and couldn't find it in the manual.

Could you please guide me to the location of the sensor?

Note that I'm not talking to the overall speed sensor which located on the chain wheel, I'm talking about the engine itself RPM :)

It's called the tachometer. The sensor wire should be the black one coming out of the gauge cluster in the back. They typically hook to one of the coils. Look up the wiring diagram for your year and it should show you where it connects.

According the manual the tachometer wire goes directly into the ECU... :(

There's your answer. The ECU is what tells the spark plugs to fire, so it makes sense that it also feeds the tach. Is there a specific issue you were trying to solve?
