The Vimoto V6 Bluetooth intercom system came from China.
I’ve tried it out and it’s not bad.
Unboxing the device I noticed the speakers were strong and good built, it came with different accessories for mounting on your helmet. two microphones, one for the open helmet and the other for the closed head helmet.
On Monday I’ve tested the device while commuting to work. The feel of the ride was different than what I’m accustomed to!
Especially with earplugs in your ears (this was used to prevent my ears from being damaged of sudden high pitch volume from the system) as it turns out you can decrease the volume of your music, your calls but not the system. Ex: (call ended, turning on, turning off, etc…) this can be surprising on a motorcycle which luckily for me, doesn’t happen too often. Having your hearing senses muffled changes the way you ride. This really showed when I took off at a turning green traffic light! I couldn’t hear the Rev of the bike and ended up doing an unintentional wheelie for a burst fraction of a second. I thought this wasn’t possible on this bike 😅. Surprised yes, but it was a rush 🏍️.
Another issue is after awhile using the earplugs with the plastic stud does annoy you as it hits the speaker and your ear. until I buy one with no wire or plastic in them I’ve ended up just using small pieces of tissues instead. 🙉
Another thing my colleague help me figure was the clutch handle being loose after my long trip to Springfield station (will be discussed later in this blog). good thing it was a simple fix by tightening up the screw.
