Back in 2013 BIKESYSTEMS launched the world’s first motorbike Head Up Display system, BIKEHUD – and now the next generation BIKEHUD’s gearing up for official release.
Speaking about BIKEHUD, founder Dave Vout said: “Our first BIKEHUD was very much an early-adopter product. We wanted to put so much more into the product, but back in 2011 (when the first prototype was created) technology was much more restrictive and much more expensive. But that didn’t stop us – and as a result, the original BIKEHUD developed quite a cult following. In fact, one New Zealander rode across New Zealand, Australia and the USA wearing one.
“The original unit was a chance for us to get the concept out there – and over the next few years, we received a huge amount of feedback from customers right across the world. There were three main suggestions that kept cropping up. Firstly, the monocle needed to be smaller. Secondly, the system needed a rear-view camera. And finally, it needed to be really simple to use. So that’s what we’ve done – taking on board the feedback to create the next generation BIKEHUD.”
The new BIKEHUD has been built around those three key requirements, utilising the latest technology to create what BIKEHUD believes will become the first motorcycle Heads Up Display for the mainstream.
