RoadHawk have released their newest motorcycle Bullet camera, The RoadHawk Bullet R+ Moto edition, along with the accessories to hard wire it and the RoadHawk Ride to the bike’s electrics.

To quote RoadHawk’s blurb:

The RoadHawk Bullet R+ Moto Edition Camera has been designed specifically for motorcycles and other motorised transport and also includes a hard wiring kit which allows the camera to be powered from the ignition of a vehicle. The waterproof, discrete and robust camera offers a choice of standard or loop recording with an optional time and date stamp. This makes it ideal for road users looking to record their journeys for evidential purposes or for recording track days and sports action adventures.

The RoadHawk Bullet cameras are designed to be very simple to use, multipurpose cameras which can be mounted on your helmet, your vehicle, on a pet (dog, horse etc.) or on you. The RoadHawk Bullet R+ Moto edition is no exception. Quite literally, there’s just one button to press which is easily accessible whilst wearing gloves.

Why would I want one?

There are a number of reasons to get a DashCam or ActionCam. On a “Moto” they are usually used to record interesting rides or track days, but, in this current litigious climate, an overwhelming reason must be for evidence capturing.

Having a camera solves a number of problems: Lack of credible witnesses; Conflicting statements of events; Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable at junctions so who was at fault; Perception that motorcyclists are reckless road users so proof that you’re not; A motorcyclist may not remember vital information from the scene of a collision; Allows claims to be settled more effectively and efficiently, and finally, the footage is eligible for use in court to exonerate a rider of any blame.

With the different mounts, you have multiple mounting options. You can move the camera between vehicles or between your helmet and vehicle etc. So you can use it on your Moto, bicycle or when out horse riding.

The RoadHawk Ride series are also very light, only a couple of ounces or so, therefore hardly noticeable when worn on a helmet.

Most importantly, you don’t look like a “Teletubby” when wearing one!

Remote Control

What’s also new is the RF Remote Controller. When you’re not using the hard wiring kit, the additional RF remote control allows for greater flexibility when using the RoadHawk Bullet R+ Moto Edition. This allows remote recording and the ability to take photographs.

Battery

The inbuilt battery will last about 90 minutes depending on the temperature.

This can be supplemented with an external waterproof battery lasting up to 5½ hours (see photo).

The camera can also be hard-wired to the vehicle’s ignition. If connected to the vehicle’s ignition, the camera will automatically start recording when the ignition is switched on and stop recording when the ignition is switched off.

The Software

The RoadHawk Bullet R+ Moto edition is also fully software configurable, using UK designed software. This allows riders to adjust the settings for exposure, brightness and contrast. The software also allows loop record mode to be turned off for the rides you don’t want to record over, the time and date stamp added removed or changed, and footage inverted for times when mounting the camera the right way up are not possible.
