I believe this was posted a few months ago. The stereo looks pretty good and is definitely a viable option.
I believe the general consensus was that Jensen a less than optimal stereo manufacturer and a lot of people were waiting for the release and opinions on it.

Looks good though. I would consider one if it functioned well.

Yes this was discussed in depth end of last year...
So it is easy to install, but the quality is substantially lower.
Get yourself a biketronics or hawg wired kit and run a sony or Kenwood. You'll be much happier in the long run.

I saw this radio a while back also. I like the waterproof and handlebar functions but i agree it is less superior quality. I am only leary about after market radios because they are not water proof and the "marine" radios i read still get ruined by water spray and such. I will wait to see peoples reaction to the jensen radio.

$500? WoW. It might be a great unit. I guess because back in the day when jensen was junk, I still think that way of them. They might be much better nowadays. But, thats a big gamble for 5 bones. Nice tried and true unit + biketronics/hawg wired module = done.

Cd's have gone the way of 8 track and cassette tapes. Bluetooth works so well these days. I have a USB charger/connector in the glove box for the iPhone or the old school iPods my kids outgrew which I have loaded with great tunes I run on shuffle.
You want great sounds for long distance riding? Bose in ear. Unreal and you can hear the world around you in a 1/2 helmet.

I had a Jensen unit in my old Jeep Wrangler. They're made for tractors and work trucks, so seemed like a no-brainer for a jeep that was open to the elements year-round. I wondered at the time why no one was putting them in Harleys. I had no issues with the stereo. Worked great , including iPod hard wired input and Sirius.

The only back-lighting color is red. That kinda rules it out for anyone that doesn't want red. You'd think Jensen would have back lighting options for $500.

I agree with this but I have noticed BT doesn't work too well when your both streaming pandora and sending your music to the HU thru BT. I have a sound bar at home on wifi and I constantly lose signal. It's annoying.
