Zumo 390LM has a wide 4.3″ touchscreen that is sunlight readable and glove touch friendly display. The power of Bluetooth allows to simply connect your mobile phone and headset or helmet to Zumo 390LM. You’re free to talk on your phone without having to remove the gloves or helmet. With that in mind the Zumo allows you to use voice commands and speaks the names of streets.

With Lifetime map updates you are assured that none of your curvy roads disappear with the latest map updates, and the best part is that the map updates are free for lifetime.

According to Harley they were out on the road riding with other riders to see what features are missing in Harley motorcycles.

A lot of people are talking about Indian Motorcycles and their stylish and classic look. Harley figured that they need to take another approach to tackle Indian Motorcycles and they created the Rushmore Project.
