Ducati connects smartphones to its bike and launches a new Link App
- Uses bluetooth to connect the smartphone to the motorcycle
- The app is available for both ios and android smartphones
- Initially available on the 1260 series and subsequently updated for other models
Ducati has launched a new mobile phone application called Ducati Link App that is available via ios and android smartphones. The Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer built the app with three biking experiences in mind.
The first one is the connection between the smartphone and machine. Using Bluetooth, the application connects to the motorcycle and, while riding, records information supplied by the onboard control unit such as speed, lean angle, power delivery and acceleration. At the end of a journey, the rider can check aspects of their performance, analysing the evolution of the data over the course of the expedition.
Using the smartphone’s GPS, the Ducati Link App also records the route travelled and by allowing a rider to integrate photos and comments, enables them to relive the highlights of their experience.
These can now be shared with fellow motorcyclists. A rider can use the app to upload details of itineraries, images, and suggestions for other bikers.
Connection with the bike and data exchange is available for Multistrada 1260 variants and soon will be available across other Ducati models.
