Multiple Connectivity Options

When shopping around for a motorcycle stereo system, staying connected is essential. If you can’t plug into your favorite tunes and have hands-free calls, what’s the point of having a radio? If you choose the Sony XAV AX7000 radio, you’re choosing a model that offers three different connectivity options, which include:

Apple CarPlay

This Sony radio conveniently hooks up to your iPhone or Apple device for hands-free calling, GPS, music streaming, and much more. This innovative feature allows you to easily control the radio while keeping your eyes on the road. You can even ask Siri to give you directions, choose a song, or even call a friend—all without moving a muscle!

Android Auto

If you have an Android device, then the Android Auto feature is just what you need. Whether you want access to your favorite tunes or need Google Maps, this feature makes it easy. After plugging your device into the USB connection, simply use the touchscreen to make your selection.


The Sony XAV AX7000 radio also easily connects to Bluetooth. While this feature is extremely useful in a standard vehicle, it’s even more valuable on a motorcycle. While your eyes are focused on the road, utilizing hands-free devices is vital! Whether you need to make a quick call or choose a new song, the Sony XAV AX7000 can handle that within seconds.

Sleek Design

If you have a Harley, you care about the look and style of your ride. That said, you never want to install a bulky, ugly radio. If you want a sleek and seamless look, go for the Sony XAV AX7000. When purchased with an installation kit, this radio fits perfectly and looks incredible! In fact, some drivers say the radio looks stock. It blends in well with the surrounding details, and the screen is just the right size. The equipment also includes convenient weather-proof buttons that fit in with the aesthetics.

High Power and Sound Quality

When shopping around for Harley Davidson speakers and radios, sound quality and power are very important qualities to keep an eye on. After all, you need the right volume and quality to overpower motorcycle noise. Luckily, the Sony XAV AX7000 radio comes loaded with extra power, including top-of-the-line sound quality. In fact, the power is almost double compared to the last model, the Sony XAV-AX5000. This is made possible by the unit’s 100W class-D amplifier that's built right in!

When it comes to sound quality, the high-powered 5V pre-out feature offers crisp, clear audio with less distortion. The system also features some extra bass to help overpower the engine noise. But that’s not all—the Sony XAV AX7000 also comes with a 10-band equalizer to help fine-tune the perfect audio in your specific riding environment.

Compatible with SiriusXM

Are you a fan of satellite radio? If so, did you know you can get this radio on your Harley? That’s right—when you purchase the Sony XAV AX7000 and the SiriusXM tuner, you can enjoy hundreds of channels from around the world! While hooking up your phone and choosing music can be a hassle, listening to satellite radio is a better option for some people. After connecting a simple tuner to your motorcycle, you can enjoy these tunes at any time! As satellite radios work anywhere, this feature can be very useful when you don't have any cell reception.

Dual USB Ports

Do you store your music on an iPod or another music device? If so, then you can easily connect it to the Sony XAV AX7000 radio! Even if you don’t have an iPhone or Android, you can still play your favorite music while zipping down the road. This is made possible with the two USB ports that come with the unit. These allow you to connect your cell phone, MP3 player, iPod, or even a USB drive! No matter what music files you have, there’s a good chance they will play on the Sony XAV AX7000. If you want the best Harley stereo upgrade around, you can’t go wrong with this high-quality motorcycle radio!
