As an added bonus until 31/12/17 RCMS will add free of charge a High Endurance 32GB SD Card
when any system (Not Parts) is ordered (Worth £16.99).
The “Bike Bro” is a comprehensive, reliable dual camera HD front & rear camera system and recorder (DVR) designed for Motorcycle use.
The “Bike Bro” comes complete with everything you need to install on any Motorcycle. The retail package consists of the following items.
**GPS Module and Manual Capture Button available as options**
The compact 6.5cm x 5.8cm DVR Control unit is small enough to be mounted under the seat, or next to the Bike Battery. A mounting bracket is also supplied.
The DVR Control Unit can easily be removed from the Bike for security or storage purposes if required, simply by unplugging four connectors. The additional
purchase of a second bike hardware kit will also allow one DVR to easily be shared between two bikes, without the expense of having to purchase two complete systems.
Unlike some other dash camera products on the market, our DVR uses automotive grade waterproof locking connectors for power and cameras, and not micro usb connectors. USB connectors are intended for computer or domestic products and are not designed to withstand the constant vibration and movement encountered on the roads or during an impact. Loose connectors, can eventually mean intermittent picture loss, video interference or entire lost video footage, at a time when you may rely on it the most.
The optional wired rider dual ‘panic’ button is designed for mounting on the handlebars, where a single press of either button can be used to trigger a manual locked video capture event from both cameras in order to record and preserve instances such as road rage, ‘brake testing’, or dangerous driving by other road users. Each press of the button results in a one minute protected video file being retained, (starting from 10 seconds prior to the button being pressed). Any footage captured using this method (or during an accident impact) will be retained as a locked file on the SD Card protecting it from being overwritten during the process of normal loop recording. The ‘panic’ button also contains a built in microphone for audio capture around the rider. Long pressing of the button allows for remote on/off switching of the DVR from the seat, for periods that you may not wish to record.
The purchase of the Bike Bro package which has the GPS module, will allow you to record the GPS position, speed, acceleration, etc within each recorded file whilst riding, which will then be displayed alongside the video footage when using the Nortek video playback software on a PC or Mac. A built in scrolling map
window within the video player also displays the GPS road position of the Bike in relation to where the clip was recorded, and the direction of travel whilst the footage is being played back.
Speed information is not displayed on the actual raw video footage (Some customers may prefer not to have this information stamped and freely visible on the
actual video, such as during a road side stop for example), however the speed information is still captured but only becomes visible when using our Bike Bro GPS Playback software.

Smart Power Option
The standard power supply, which is included with the Bike Bro requires connection to a switched Ignition Circuit in order to automatically switch the recorder on/off in relation to the Bike being used. Purchasing the “Smart Power” unit, will allow direct connection to the Bike Battery, automatically switching the recorder on and off in relation to normal engine and road vibration being sensed, as an alternative to using the Tail light or Headlight Circuit or hogging any accessory socket. This is an option which should be purchased if your bike uses a CANBUS System (E.g BMW, Triumph) or where you don’t wish to splice into your existing wiring.
The background current consumed by the Power Unit when the DVR has shut down is very little (under 1 ma).
Second Bike Kit Option
Also available is a complete second set of hardware for the Bike Bro excluding the main control unit. The kit includes a pair of additional cameras, Standard Power Supply Unit and Mounting Fixtures which allows the hardware to be fitted to a second bike. This then allows one portable DVR control unit to easily be shared, simply by moving it between two different bikes. Useful for customers who own or have access to more than one bike whilst saving money over buying two complete Bike Bro systems. Please Note:- This kit does not include a Manual Capture Button, Smart Power unit or GPS Sensor, so if these options are required for use with a second bike they will need to be purchased individually at the time of ordering.
