Bike to Bike Radio

Communication System

The Harley Davidson Bike to Bike Radio is a compact communication system that ties together in-helmet headsets for riders and makes conversation between bikes a breeze. Integrated with a GPS and music player, the Bike to Bike Radio is a hub for all audio on a motorcycle. 

Our teams at KEK guided the project from concept all the way to prototypes. Starting with user experience storyboards, our process had riders at the center of our process from the start.

User-Centered Design

Before aesthetics were even considered, our design team parsed every interaction the rider would have with the Bike to Bike system. These storyboards were critical to the design intent.
