Top Bluetooth-Enabled Motorcycles in India
In the present times, Bluetooth connectivity in motorcycles is an essential feature because it helps the riders navigate through a host of information
A few decades ago, Bluetooth connectivity was introduced in mobile phones which allowed us to share files wirelessly. In the present times, the same technology has been fused into motorcycles because Bluetooth-enabled motorcycles or motorcycles with Bluetooth connected displays provide a host of information to the riders on the go. While cruising, riders can receive information such as call alerts, message alerts, turn-by-turn direction and navigation assistance. To enjoy these features, the majority of the riders these days are picking up Bluetooth-enabled motorcycles. However, there’s no shortage of Bluetooth-enabled motorcycles in India. Therefore, in this feature, we’ve detailed some of the top Bluetooth-enabled motorcycles in our country.
KTM Duke 390- From the Austrian brand, the KTM Duke 390 is one of the most powerful motorcycles in the country at around INR 3 lakh. A 373cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine tuned to generate a peak power of 43.5hp and 37Nm of torque powers the motorcycle. In 2017, the brand added a Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster in the Duke 390, which can be connected to the rider’s phone using the My Ride application of KTM.
Revolt RV 400- Revolt has taken its Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster to a unique status. While most of the Bluetooth-enabled clusters offer similar features such as call alerts and message alerts, the Bluetooth-enabled cluster of the Revolt RV 400 allows a rider to switch on the motorcycle when the smartphone of the rider is connected to the cluster via the company’s app. That’s not all as a rider can also use the company’s application to switch the battery, monitor the status of the battery and the Geo-fencing options.
Hero Xtreme 200S- One of the newest motorcycles in the 200cc naked category in India, the Hero Xtreme 200S is powered by a 199.6cc BSVI engine that generates a peak power of 17.8hp and a torque figure of 16.45Nm. Priced at INR 1,80,000, the Bluetooth-enabled instrument cluster allows the rider to receive information such as turn-by-turn navigation, message alerts and call alerts once the rider’s smartphone is paired to the cluster via Bluetooth. Unfortunately, Hero MotoCorp has not created a dedicated application like KTM and Revolt.
