handlebar, to answer calls but also turns helmet stop and turning signals
simultaneously with the motorcycle stops and turn signals.
Alarm System(KAS):This system recognises the presence of the UM motorbike owner
within 1.2 meters of the bike and energises the bike automatically. The bike
can then be started without using a key. When the vehicle stops and the rider
walks away, the system turns off power to the bike and activates an alarm
equipped with a motion sensor. When system is in By-Pass mode, the remote can
turn the alarm on or off, up to 300 meters away, including a search function
when trying to locate the bike. Inside the remote, there is a mechanical key
that can be removed and used when the owner deactivates the KAS and wants to
use the bike in a normal mode.
