New Sena systems in Milan – Ride Connected

Rider communication experts Sena, had some tidy new products to show us in Milan, notably their new 30k intercom which uses their new ‘mesh’ system for networking up to 30 units! 

It also utilises Bluetooth enabling mobile phone and satnav connection, and claimed range (depending on mode and connections) is up to 8km. 

They also told us that their crash helmet range is finally due for launch in 2018. Produced with a composite fibre shell these feature integrated communications, noice reduction system and one version will also still include an integral action camera mounted on top. Very clever indeed. 

Here at ScooterNova we already use Sena intercoms and camera while riding so we are very interested to see how these products develop. 

As they say, watch this space. 

New Davida Koura helmet launched in Milan

We are in Milan for a couple of days at the Motorcycle Show here and the first new product to share with you is a full image of the new Davida Koura crash helmet we teased you with a couple of days ago. 

The New Davida 94 FF Koura features an “Advanced ‘ orbital laminated’ GPR composite shell construction” and there will also be an optional shell made from T700 grade racing carbon fibre. Davida claim it has a compact and close fitting shell derived from their open face Davida Speedster V3 helmet and say that the shell shape is “designed to give optimal weight-balanced ergonomic performance, gradually sculptured upwards from front to rear to eliminate clothing interference.”

There are six chin air vents, the helmet will be supplied with a 3mm anti-fog ECER22-05 approved visor, it also features multi-density EPS shock liner, removable, washable, fast-drying, anti-bacterial fabric liner and interchangeable with after-market leather liner kits in five colours. Secured using traditional webbing strap and double D Ring the Koura will be available in the 20 Davida Core Colour Range as standard, two shell sizes and six helmet sizes from XS to XXL. SRP is expected to be £435 when launched in 2018.
