Although many had initial doubts of Kawasaki’s JetSound speaker system unique to the 2014 Ultra 310LX, the buying public clearly couldn’t be happier with the MP3-playing sound system – as evidence by the vehicle’s initial sales over the past quarter.
Between the controls of the 310LX is a Jensen head unit that control Kawasaki’s new JetSound audio system. The LCD display communicates with your USB memory stick, MP3 player or iPhone/iPad/iPod (or other digital music player) to a pair of 30-watt waterproof speakers mounted below the mirrors, powered by an amp rated at 20W (x2 channels, max 40W x2).
Let, for those who want to push their LX to the limits, swapping out the plastic handlebars for a sturdier aftermarket set means losing that head unit…that is, until now. SE Speedmagic has modified their billet steering cover that housed the cruise control until (allowing for a billet aftermarket throttle trigger) to also house the JetSound head unit.
Relocating the Jensen unit from the handlebars to the dash allows riders to enjoy their music while riding without sacrificing the added security of durable MX-style handlebars. The Osaka, Japan company has been perfecting the art of providing top quality components that add convenience, strength and durability with a bunch of innovation. Make sure to check ’em out.
