share on:

STAMFORD, CT – HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., announced that Yamaha has selected HARMAN to equip their new “Star Venture” touring motorcycle with infotainment and navigation technologies to create a true grand-touring motorcycle exclusively for North American consumers.

HARMAN developed the Yamaha Star Venture infotainment system to create a seamless user experience for riders interested in longer trans-continental routes, with a focus on functions, industrial design and UI. The infotainment system features a high resolution seven-inch touch screen display mounted in the cockpit. The system can be operated by switches on the motorcycle’s handles, as well as by voice command when using headphones. It also features a two-zone audio system, which allows the driver and passenger to listen to different Pandora® radio stations or streams through separate audio speakers via wireless Bluetooth® connectivity. The vehicle systems are also integrated into HARMAN’s infotainment system, which runs data such as trip computer functions and tire pressure onto the cockpit display.

“Working with Yamaha to create an unmatched riding experience for motorcycle enthusiasts that also keeps consumers safe with leading navigation technologies has allowed us to provide an ideal infotainment system for trans-continental exploration,” said Phil Eyler, executive vice president and president, Connected Car, HARMAN. “We are looking forward to continuing our work with Yamaha and creating cutting-edge technologies that create the ultimate driving experience.”

The “Star Venture” will be available for purchase exclusively in North American in August 2017.
