speedsignal is OEM for radio preparation 877

As an ISO TS 16949 certified company we are authorized to directly supply the automotive industry (TIR1). Besides various projects from the passenger cars area we also provide the special equipment "877 radio preperation" for BMW motorcycle.

The approved system R@ven BlueLight, which is used in different passenger cars, trucks and even watercrafts, was modified for BMW for the special needs on a motorcycle. The waterproof control panel for motorcycles with "glove-friendly" operating keys and a display which is readable even at direct sunlight fits in perfectly with the controls of these high grade vehicles. Thereby especially the ergonomicaly optimized operation via buttons F1-F4 e.g. as radiobuttons, as well as the involvement of the MMC-operating devices (turn- and press controller) into this operating concept at the K52 must be emphasised.

Motorcycle Controls

Extensive measurements garantuee OEM quality, especially in regards to reception and interference immunity. The voice quality and listening experience with spiral cable as well as the bluetooth function of the bmw helmets are excellent.
We are proud to not only deliver individual parts to the assembly line but the complete system including antennas, cables and brackets as well as board computers and the motorcycle operating device.
Since 2016 we are national BMW-servicepartner and contact person for this radio system at all subsidiaries.
