    Does my 2018 bike have speakers installed though It does not have a radio?

      Doubtful, can’t see any motor co fitting something that hasn’t been paid for!

          Probably dont, but do get extra storage space behind covers.

            I found the speakers on my 2017 bike to be useless while riding.
            Since I use a communicator,  I removed the speakers and use one of the spaces for first-aid kit, Flat tire repair kit, and a small tool kit. The other speaker location keeps my GS-911 wrapped up to be waterproof.
            I now listen to music/radio through my helmet speakers. A huge improvement....!

                99% sure the answer is no.  My 2016 does not have the audio package and no speakers are fitted.  Easy enough to whip out the 2 or 3 screws holding it and have a quick look behind.  Useful place to have any wiring etc for any accessories you fit.  Or a spare key perhaps.... 


                Not wishing to start another fight, but I can't see the point of speakers on a bike (in UK anyway); antisocial in low speed towns, not that audible on motorways because of traffic and wind noise.  Each to their own....

                  I thought about that as a hiding place for a spare key, but then I realised I would have to find somewhere to carry a Torx driver to access it. If that's going to be in a pocket , I'm less likely to do damage to myself just pocketing the key ..... unless someone has a better idea ?
