KENWOOD Announces Audio Products Designed & Engineered for Harley-Davidson® Motorcycles

LONG BEACH, CALIF., February 3rd, 2023 KENWOOD USA (, manufacturer of premier entertainment and information solutions for the automotive, marine, and motorsports aftermarket, announced the addition of a dedicated category of products aimed to boost the audio experience for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. KENWOOD’s new eXcelon Motorsports “Motorcycle Audio” product line offers customers a better sound experience, while also maintaining all the factory controls and fitment with a “Plug & Play” solution.  

The lineup will consist of all-in-one product packages designated by years 1998-2013 and 2014+, along with a la carte amplifier, speaker, and accessory solutions. Packages will offer direct fitment replacement speakers and sound-matched amplifier(s), enhanced with better durability and power handling than OE solutions, allowing riders to achieve better sound and higher volume levels. Expansion kits such as replacement hard saddlebag lids (1998-2013) and an existing lid cut-in kit (2014+) are precisely designed for the XM69R 6x9s. Riders can also add speakers to the lower crash bars of the bike with optional speaker pod accessory kits, all with an enhanced fit and finish. “Boot” resistant steel grilles and more, strategically designed amplifier mounting plates, and more set riders up for a full system out of the gate or easy future system expansion.

“To ensure that our dealers would be equipped with proven products right out of the gate, we looked for a partner that already lives and breathes motorcycle audio,” said John Lucas, KENWOOD Vice President of Sales. “Just like our success in partnering with companies like iDatalink™ and Garmin®, when it came to a partner for motorcycle audio, Hogtunes’ level of trusted product, support, and separate network of distribution was the logical choice. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the products that we’ve developed and the support that Mike “Pez” Pesdirz (Owner/President of Hogtunes) has provided.”

The KENWOOD eXcelon Motorsports Motorcycle Audio line is set to begin shipping this Spring.
