Viseton unveiled a concept for a new motorcycle cluster at this year's CES trade show.

Modern-day automobiles are equipped with sophisticated dashboard systems that feature LCD touchscreens, hands-free calling, gesture control and access to digital music. Unfortunately, motorcycles have been largely left out of the equation when it comes to implementing these systems. Not for long! Visteon's motorcycle cluster is set to offer motorcyclists the same benefits as their automobile-driving counterparts.

The concept will be integrated on the motorcycle cluster, as well as the driver's helmet and smartphone (which can be mounted onto the bike). It will include navigation, access to the phone's music library or live-streaming music and hands-free phone calls. Drivers can utilize voice commands for the app through the helmet's Bluetooth audio connection.
