Sena Bluetooth Partners with HJC® Helmets to Create All-New Integrated Bluetooth Communication Device
All-New H-Talk from Sena Bluetooth and HJC® to be Launched at EICMA
SAN JOSE, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2013) – Sena Technologies, Inc., a Bluetooth innovator in the motorcycle and outdoor activities market, today announced their recent partnership with HJC® Helmets to create the all-new H-Talk, a Bluetooth communication system integrated into the cheek pad of the RPHA Max Evo Helmet with additional helmet model integrations to come. The all-new H-Talk is the unit being integrated into an HJC® Helmet and is a Bluetooth stereo headset and intercom. The all-new integration is officially being launched at the 71st International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA), in Milan, Italy, November 7-10, 2013. Being integrated into the cheek pad, the H-Talk maintains a sleek helmet appearance with the unit being unnoticeable from outside the helmet. The H-Talk is easy to use and provides all the features and performance capabilities of Sena’s current products including the ability to make hands-free mobile phone calls, listen to stereo music or voice instructions of GPS navigations by Bluetooth wirelessly, and have intercom conversations in full duplex with other riders or passengers. The H-Talk being integrated into HJC® Helmets will be available through HJC® and their dealer network beginning February 2014.
“Sena is always looking for ways to provide riders with innovative products that will keep them connected while on the road. The new partnership with market leader, HJC® will allow Sena to continue providing units for riders that contain exceptional quality, advanced technology and provides all the necessary functions while still being easy to use,” said Tae Kim, President and CEO of Sena Technologies, Inc. “Partnering with HJC® Helmets to develop the all- new H-Talk will allow both companies to continue meeting our customer’s demands and satisfy the need for both reliable and innovative technology.”
“HJC® chose to partner with Sena because we wanted to provide our customers with more options and functionality with their helmets. Integrating an intercom function with Sena’s technology will provide another element of innovation to our helmets,” said Seok Jung Hong, Vice President of HJC® Helmets. “Sena’s combination of brand loyalty and positive reputation makes them the perfect partner for HJC®, and the continued growth of a positive brand image for HJC®.”
The all-new H-Talk for HJC® Helmets is being integrated into the RPHA Max Evo helmet and will be integrated into additional HJC® helmets coming next year. The Bluetooth intercom being integrated will feature the same advanced technology of Sena’s current product line. The H-Talk will feature the latest Bluetooth technology and allows riders to wirelessly make mobile calls, listen to stereo music or voice instructions of GPS navigations by Bluetooth wirelessly, and have intercom conversations in full duplex with other riders or passengers. The H-Talk is also developed to be compatible with all of Sena’s Bluetooth products including the recently announced Bluetooth Action Camera.
For 2014 Sena is bringing more products to market than ever before and the all-new website will provide detailed information, imagery and support to consumers. For more information about Sena Technologies, visit www.SenaBluetooth.com.
