The Integrated Connectivity Cluster, a 10.25″ TFT screen developed by Bosch, will soon be available on the motorbike market. This will enable bikers to simultaneously display navigation and vehicle data, for example. Via the mySPIN smartphone integration solution, contents of the smartphone can also be transferred to the motorbike display.

The new split screen display will be used for the first time this year in BMW motorbikes. On the comparatively generously dimensioned screen, the driver receives multiple relevant information at a glance and is not distracted from the traffic. The user decides which content he wants to see and can operate it using the controls on the handlebars. With mySPIN, the contents of smartphone apps, for example, are automatically adjusted to the size of the motorbike display. Thanks to the split screen, important information such as speed or warning messages are displayed on the screen in parallel.

According to a Bosch survey, around 90 percent of all motorcyclists use their smartphone for tour planning. One third even use their mobile phone while driving – a highly dangerous behaviour. With the mySPIN integration solution developed by Bosch, however, smartphone content can be used safely and conveniently.

mySPIN has already been available in the power sports segment – including motorised watercraft or so-called all-terrain vehicles – in vehicles from BRP since 2018 and is now making its first appearance on motorbikes. Together with the likewise new networked 6.5-inch display from Bosch without split-screen function, Ducati will integrate the solution into its vehicles. “We want motorcyclists to be able to use smartphone content integrated and easily while riding. With the mySPIN platform and the Integrated Connectivity Cluster we have found the right solution for this,” says Vincenzo De Silvio, Head of Research and Development at Ducati. The Japanese motorbike manufacturer Kawasaki will also follow in 2021.
