HD Radio is now available for the first time on a motorcycle.

Xperi Corp. announced that HD Radio receivers are standard on the digital dash display of the 2022 BMW R 18 Transcontinental.

“This marks another industry first for HD Radio technology, which recently announced it had entered the commercial truck category,” it stated.

The announcement was made by Jeff Jury, Xperi SVP and general manager, Connected Car.

The base model of that bike retails for about $25,000.

“BMW Motorrad continues to be ahead of the innovation curve when it comes to the consumer experience and making sure their motorbike owners have the listening experiences they want,” Jury said in a press release.
