•   R Tune:

This system automatically adjusts the sound control to the motorcycle's surroundings. The result is a powerful sound that stands out better against rolling and wind noise. In order to offer the driver an optimal sound experience, the loudspeakers designed for the left and right side of the vehicle are designed to be mirror images of each other.

•   M-DEQ (Motorcycle Dynamic EQ):

The amplifier, equipped with intelligent control technology, adjusts the control frequencies of the equalizer in real time to ensure a consistent, authentic sound regardless of the driving speed and driving situation.

•   BME (Bass Management Enhancement):

To ensure impressive bass reproduction in every driving situation, the active signal processor of the DSP amplifier continuously regulates the frequency response depending on the driving speed and the rolling noise.

•   Bridge mounted design:

The offset design of the tweeter and midrange driver eliminates acoustic reflections and therefore enables high volume levels without distortion. In addition, the respective speakers are specifically tailored to be installed on the right or left side of the vehicle in order to achieve spatially optimal sound radiation for the driver.

•   IDHS (Inductive Damping Heat Sink):

Cooling fins on the speakers dissipate excess heat from moving components, thereby minimizing distortion.

•   Full-range Class D technology:

Highly efficient Class D amplifiers for all frequency ranges provide high performance at all times without overtaxing the motorcycle's electrical system.

•   ICC+:

The integrated crossover is characterized by a very efficient design and is crucial for the purity of the sound reproduction, as one is used to from the hi-fi system in the living room at home. Thanks to its well-thought-out design, it can be installed quickly.

•   The “Harley-Davidson powered by Rockford Fosgate” app:

With this app, the driver can install the system software himself and fine-tune it. Thanks to Smart-Install, both installation and upgrades are quick and easy. The “Harley-Davidson powered by Rockford Fosgate” app takes every new speaker added to the system into account and automatically ensures an individually optimized sound experience.

•   Easy installation:

A wiring harness reduced to the bare essentials, a reduced number of openings in the fairing and a maximum of two amplifiers that can be mounted in the side cases simplify installation. A dealer software installation is also not necessary, as the “Harley-Davidson powered by Rockford Fosgate” app programs the system and tests the installation.

The speakers in the “Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate” Stage I and Stage II kits are designed for installation in the original speaker housings. Harley-Davidson and Rockford Fosgate have developed different audio kits specifically for installation in the fairing, leg shields, Tour-Pak and side case lids.

All kits include right and left speakers and matching speaker grilles. A speaker mounting kit and an amplifier with mounting kit are required for installation. The speakers from the Stage I and Stage II kits can be combined to form a complete system. All Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate components are backed by a two-year warranty.

Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate Stage I speakers

The high-quality two-way speakers consist of a robust woofer with a die-cast basket and a separate mid-tweeter mounted concentrically on a bridge. They are designed for a nominal power of 75 watts each. Up to eight speakers can be operated with two amplifiers. The Stage I kit already offers a clear increase in sound quality and performance.

Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate Stage II speakers

Crystal-clear highs, warm presence and a powerful bass characterize the “Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate” Stage II kit. The foundation of the actively separated three-way speakers is a robust woofer with a die-cast basket, the bridge of which carries a separate midrange and tweeter.

A rated output of 150 watts offers generous reserves for a considerable sound volume and distortion-free playback even at country road speeds. An audio system with up to eight speakers can be operated with two amplifiers.

designed entirely for the demanding working environment on the motorcycle The compact, newly developed amplifier (dimensions: 20.6 x 13.7 x 5.1 cm) can be easily mounted in the side case.

A single amplifier drives up to two sets of speakers from the Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate Stage I or Stage II kits. The power rating is 50 watts per channel into an impedance of four ohms or 100 watts per channel into two ohms.

Air-conditioned touring benches

The temperature control of the new, air-conditioned Harley Hammock and Sundowner seats not only gives riders of Harley-Davidson touring models and trikes more comfort, but also an extended motorcycling season.

Both seats offer significant cooling performance and their heating function reaches the selected temperature twice as quickly as previous heated seats. The entire air conditioning unit is housed within the seats. Their seat contour is identical to the Sundowner and Hammock seats without air conditioning. To remove the seats, you only need to disconnect a single cable connector.

Hammock Heated & Cooled Seat

The thermoelectric climate control unit in the seat contains a Peltier element that uses electrical current to transport heat from one side of the element to the other. One of the two sides consists of a fine grid embedded in the fabric under the seat cover. If electrical current flows through the Peltier element in one direction, it transports the heat away from the seat.

If the polarity is reversed, the seat surface is heated. The system has neither moving parts nor a liquid or gaseous coolant - leaks are therefore impossible. A small fan in the base plate removes the heated air from the seat downwards. A model-specific connection cable is also required for installation.

• Increased riding comfort reduces fatigue on the road and extends the riding season in any climate zone.

• In the standardized test at an air temperature of 29.4 °C, the system cools the seat by 14 °C in around 30 minutes, i.e. from the normal body temperature of 37 °C to just around 23 °C. While driving, the climate control system continuously removes heat from the body.

• Dual-zone climate control: The driver and front passenger seats each operate in the same climate control mode (heating or cooling), but the intensity can be controlled individually and the two seats can be switched off separately.

• The advanced heating element reaches the selected temperature in just seven minutes.

Air-conditioned sundowner seat

The Sundowner bench seat for two people offers increased comfort on long journeys. Its deeply shaped contour allows most drivers to have an ideal, relaxed sitting position and the generous padding proves to be extremely comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Air-conditioned Harley Hammock touring seats for driver and passenger

The uncompromising Harley Hammock seat is tailored to the highest demands for ultimate long-distance comfort. The driver's seat has special foams and a suspension with a textile insert, which together work like a hammock: The suspension offers five centimeters of spring travel above the base plate and also has a five centimeter thick foam pad. This complex construction reliably prevents any bottoming out on bumps and comfortably cushions uneven road surfaces. The suspension of the passenger seat also has a five centimeter thick foam padding.

The differences between the Hammock and Sundowner seat
The heating and cooling systems are identical. However, the Hammock Seat has additional suspension technology for the driver and front passenger, which makes it even more comfortable - especially on long journeys. The hammock is 4cm higher than the Sundowner seat, which certainly makes it look better and could ensure better handling. The hammock is intended for those who eat kilometers.

Harley-Davidson universal smartphone holder

Harley-Davidson subjected the universal smartphone holder to numerous tests before releasing it. Adhesion and vibration tests, thousands of locking cycles and even aerodynamic studies ensure that the smartphone remains reliably on the motorcycle while on the move.
