Motorcycle Mount Gives Bikers Satellite Radio

XACT Communication(TM) & Kuryakyn USA Release Satellite Radio Receiver Mount for Motorcycles

NEW YORK, Jan. 5 -- XACT Communication, a leader in consumer electronic solutions, and motorcycle industry leader Kuryakyn USA are pleased to announce the release of a satellite radio receiver mount, made specifically for recreational vehicles. Designed and distributed by Kuryakyn USA, the custom fitted bracket mount will allow motorcycle, scooter and quad enthusiasts to listen to commercial-free SIRIUS Satellite Radio via an XACT Stream|jockey Plug + Play Satellite Radio Receiver, anywhere in the US.

The custom made bracket will fit most motorcycles on the market (including Harley-Davidson, Honda, BMW, Yamaha, Buell, Suzuki, Kawasaki and many more) and allows for several mounting options to provide the cleanest look and fit. Available in chrome and black, the mount bracket is not only aesthetically appealing, but functional and durable as Kuryakyn USA designed the bracket to hold up to vigorous road miles and inclement weather.

Motorcyclists will have the ability to listen to SIRIUS with their XACT Stream|jockey either with FM modulation through their existing stereo or through direct helmet-headset plug-in. Kuryakyn USA also provides pre-amped speakers for additional options for music listening on a recreational vehicle. With the XACT Stream|jockey satellite radio receiver, listening is not exclusively confined to the vehicle. The receiver can be easily "plugged" into the motorcycle mount, a home stereo system or one of XACT's wide assortment of satellite radio accessories including boom boxes and the Portable Pod.

XACT will demonstrate the Stream|jockey and Kuryakyn USA bracket on a Harley-Davidson and custom designed Vespas at the 2005 Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, January 6th-9th. One of these Vespas will also be given away each day of the show.
