For the person that is looking for improved sound quality, or maybe needs additional help in finding points-of-interest or just wants to have the next big thing… Harley-Davidson has designed a plug- and-play upgrade for the Boom! Box 4.3 standard audio system.
Called the Boom! Box 6.5GT Infotainment System, it’s a technology upgrade for Touring models equipped with the standard radio. It has a brilliant 6.5” display, and features a low distortion 25 watt/channel amplifier that has been optimized for great sound in an open-air environment. The system features can be accessed via the glove-friendly touchscreen, joystick hand controls or with hands-free voice recognition. Riders can expect cleaner, sharper sound at volumes up to 25% louder than previous Original Equipment radios. The system has a built-in automatic volume control which compensates for the increased noise levels as speed increases, and automatically adjusts the bass and treble for optimal performance.
The MSRP price for the 6.5GT is $1799.95.
The 6.5GT is factory-equipped with AM/FM radio, weather alert, integrated iPod and USB audio device playback, map-based GPS navigation, and has Bluetooth pairing for mobile phones and wireless headsets. In addition, there is an optional Bike-to-Bike communication, XM weather and traffic services, and other features are just a plug- in module and some additional $$ away.
