Honda’s Commuter Models Could Soon Feature Bluetooth Connectivity Tech
The Japanese company has trademarked 'RoadSync' in India.
Honda has filed a trademark application for its RoadSync companion app in India, indicating that it is set to join the latest bandwagon of 2-wheeler manufacturers offering smartphone connectivity on their mainstream models.
The Japanese brand offers its Bluetooth connectivity system on the CB350 already, where the RoadSync app connects with the motorcycle’s Honda Smartphone Voice Control system (HSVCS) enabling the rider to access calls, music, navigation, among other features.
Now, it looks like the brand’s more popular models are set to get the smartphone connectivity tech, for which the Honda RoadSync trademark has been filed and consequently accepted by authorities.
But, Honda might offer the smartphone connectivity feature only in models with engine capacities of 125cc and above to begin with. Thus, 2-wheelers like the Activa 125, Grazia, Hornet 2.0, and X-Blade, might come with the tech initially.
It is expected that variants that are offered with the RoadSync feature will cost about Rs. 5000-6000/- more than the regular variant.
