KTM’s smartphone connectivity platform, KTM MY RIDE, is now available on a wide range of Street models increasing Phone, Music and Navigation functionality with turn-by-turn directions, keeping you headed in the right direction.
KTM MY RIDE with Music and Phone comes equipped for activation on the KTM 125 DUKE, KTM 390 DUKE, KTM 1290 SUPER DUKE R, KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S and KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE R models and requires an optional hardware upgrade for the KTM 790 DUKE.
KTM MY RIDE Music
With a paired Bluetooth helmet headset, KTM MY RIDE lets you take control of a smartphone’s music player while riding. Using the left handlebar-mounted menu switch, the rider can toggle between tracks and control the volume, while the track’s information is displayed on the bike’s TFT screen.
KTM MY RIDE Phone
Stay connected. Pair your smartphone to the bike with KTM MY RIDE and never miss a call. The TFT display details the identification of incoming calls and allows you to accept or decline using the menu switch. For safety reason, accessing the phone’s address book and making outgoing calls is not possible.
KTM MY RIDE Navigation
New for 2018, turn-by-turn navigation has been introduced as standard for the KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S & R. Accompanied with the new KTM MY RIDE app (available for Android and iOS, UK PRICE £7.99), visual guidance is transmitted via Bluetooth to the TFT display to show the pre-planned route.
To save on mobile data, maps can be downloaded and used offline. For KTM ADVENTURE riders who like to stray from the beaten path, up to 128 waypoints can be added to a route when planning, to help you stay on track and achieve your desired ride.
In addition, audio guidance in English, German, Spanish, Italian or French can be enabled when paired with a Bluetooth helmet headset.
KTM MY RIDE Navigation uses a separate screen next to the speedometer display and details.
- Turn-by-turn arrow icons indicating the next direction
- Distance to the next turn
- Name of the next street
- Arrival time at the destination
- Distance to target destination
KTM MY RIDE Navigation is available on 2018 machines and to owners of 2017 KTM 1290 SUPER ADVENTURE S & R by having the cost-free software upgrade installed at an official KTM dealer.
