I dont listen to music on the scoot.....,if I did I would look in to this..thought I would share ....cool,simple setup...:thumbup:

https://bikercircle.com/collections/frontpage/products/bluetooth-wireless-motorcycle-speaker-regular-price-110-00

Maximum active output power: 3W x 2

I know you can hear the audio when the engine is stopped.
I do not believe you will hear audio unless you have headphones or earbuds.
I just bought a small Bluetooth Stereo amp with 3 watts/ch, may have to see if I can hear it while riding.

I was at a local state park the other day talking with a GW rider and began to hear music from afar.
A loud (very loud) HD showed up at the nearby road 200 feet away.
A half dozen throttle Raps to let us know he was there also.
The new safety gear. Louder than my OEM horn.

I'm not big into playing music for the masses, and I don't take requests. I like my Uclear for listening to MY music.

I've listened to music on my honda soundbar for 34,950 miles out of about 35,000 miles, if i had to estimate. The phone has a 64gb card, its always with me. Big part of my rides, i love it.

With stock exhaust i can hear it good even on the highway, it "Fakes" Bass adequately.
Being a Honda Motorcycle sound system the speakers are designed to emit the sound in a concentrated direction towards the riders head, the grill on it has some tech to it.

Further comment on my honda audio system:

Originally bought it in 2012 for my Honda Shadow Aero. Got a good deal on ebay from a very motivated seller, think i got it for $275, which is still a lot of money but they are going for $400-500 now. Back in 2012 was a great time to get deals on accessories and their were plenty of them.

Wouldn't pay what they are asking for it today, so i dont know what i'd do to replace it on my X.
It's given me 7-8 years of service and still going.

I liked that it was totally plug-&-play with the Shadow and the X, although i did have to buy the wire harness for the audio system for the X as it's bike model specific. Found one on ebay for like $20.

If i had to get a new audio for the bike i would likely get something like the Kuryakyn "Sound of Chrome" is what they call/called it. Would avoid those cheap Chinese knock-offs.

I have a Sound of Chrome (it's been for sale for over a year), it is an ok system, as long as it is behind a windshield. At 60+ it is hard to hear. It is a perfect system for around town, but not so much for highways.
