Considering the outrageous acceleration of most new motorcycles it can be easy to exceed posted speed limits when riding on the street. That’s where Rocky Mountain Radar’s Moto-Raptor ($299) motorcycle radar detector comes in. The device alerts the rider to a radar signal from a speed measuring device allowing him to slow down and hopefully avoid a costly ticket.
The set-up consists of a cigarette pack-sized electronic black box, metal mounting bracket and a wireless remote headset. The box mounts covertly to the front of the motorcycle (requires an unobstructed line-of-sight; we installed it beneath the frame headstock). The headset is mounted onto the rider’s helmet with included Velcro. The remote connects to a small speaker that’s tucked inside the helmet ear cut-out providing audio cues when a radar signal is detected. It also has a flexible wand with a LED that provides visual radar notification as well. READ ON
