Over the last six months, there have been three "Exclusives" that came to our Moscow studio almost one after another. In this article we want to tell you about the most interesting of them. This bike is interesting because, unlike the previous ones, the owner decided to do a complete modernization of the audio system - he upgraded the front, added a rear and a subwoofer.

The front sound system is upgraded by us according to a long-established and well-proven technology. We replace "stock" parts with our podiums, allowing you to install larger speakers. Hertz Mille Pro sound good even in a small volume, so this is the speaker we usually install in the front. Given that the hallmark of this bike is the white color and light interior, we cover the podiums in beige leather.

The rear podiums are mounted on the armrests. Often the driver can not hear the rear acoustics, so we put the rear speakers Hertz SV Neo. They can be heard very well. Yes, they do not sound on the low-end at all, but the sub makes up for it.

For the subwoofer, we bought a coffer from a donor motorcycle. After soaking the coffer, we made it non-open to win in volume. Since the summer of 2020, we have been making a subwoofer cabinet with a phase inverter. Since there is not much space in the coffer, and the surfaces are formed by many planes, we calculated a rectangular phase-inverter, which, due to its cross-section, allows more accurate adjustment of the bass driver. Kiker 43CWR102 is ideal for installation in the motorcycle coffer-case, that is what we installed this time.

The Alpine PDX V9 amplifier is also the best way to build a front+rear+sub system on a motorcycle. Why? The answer is simple - this amplifier is equipped with five channels - two for the front, two for the rear, one for the sub; it has very good power indicators - one hundred watts per channel and five hundred for the sub; it has small dimensions - you can put it into almost any motorcycle case and most likely you can still put a helmet into the coffer; relatively low price - about 570 USD. Using a special mount, we place this amplifier in the coffer-case.

In addition to upgrading the audio system, our new lighting system was installed on the bike. The distinctive feature is that only four elements are illuminated - two turn signals and two logos. It is more like the daytime running lights, only it does not light up in white - but in any color. The owner has the ability to choose any color from more than 60 options or turn on an animation mode (there are five different). In addition, when you start the engine, the turn signals and logos slowly light up, and when you turn it off - they slowly go out, creating the effect of greeting and farewell lights. All in all, it looks interesting.


Bottom line. Retrofitting of motorcycle, modification of any elements "for yourself" always leads to positive emotions. We are sure that in the new season the owner of this motorcycle will get even more pleasant impressions and maybe even rediscover this bike.

Hi there,

Your company does amazing work. Are there any installers here in the states? Also, when do you expect to have your light kits back in stock?
