BMW Launches Fit-for-All Comms

System for Motorcycle Riders.

Communication between motorcycle riders has come a

great way since the day you had to shout to the one riding

next to you to get heard. And there still seems to be a lot of

room for improvement.

BMW has announced the launch of the new

Fit-for-All communication system. Designed

primarily for use between the rider and

passenger, the system can however offer

much more.

Just as its name says, the system is supposed

to work on all helmets. It doesn’t. It can be

used with all BMW motorcycle helmets, except

the Bowler, and with a number of helmets

made by third parties.

The device can be used to chat with the one

riding in the back, listen to music, make phone

calls and, when paired with other devices via

Bluetooth, allow for navigation instructions to

be received.

Despite being created primarily as a comms

tool for rider and passenger, linking Fit-for-All to

BMW’s Bike-to-Bike communication module

turns it into a different breed of monster.

The resulting combo can accommodate six

riders and allows for group or private chats

between them. Regularly, the range of the

system is of 300 meters, but forming a group

of bikes that ride single fi le can extend that

range to 2 km, as most of the people in the

group will act as relays.

BMW says operating the system is very

straightforward. There are three buttons that

control the intercom, the volume, on and off

capabilities and the confi guration menu.

As per BMW, Fit-for-All is both UV-resistant

and weatherproof. The device needs to be

recharged to work, and a single fi ll should last

you for about eight hours.

The exact release date for the new technology

and the price asked for it has not yet been

announced. Visit your local BMW dealer for

more information.
