m-Unit Basic

(58 reviews) Write a Review

The m-Unit Blue and the new m-Unit Basic by Motogadget pack an unbelievable amount of tech into a tiny package with a footprint smaller than the average smartphone. At it’s core, a solid-state micro controller and fuse block replacement manages your bikes vital functions while providing a self-correcting monitoring system for electrical faults. In addition, it offers scores of features while simplifying your system by replacing loose relays and modules with programmable solid state components that provide superior performance and long term reliability.

Motogadget produced the m-Unit Basic as a response to market demand as a step up from the older V.2 while not having the Bluetooth capability and accompanying features of the m-Unit Blue. You can compare the differences between the m-Unit V.2, Basic and Blue here.

The new m.Ride phone app enables you to sync your phone with the m-Unit Blue via Bluetooth® LE technology giving you access scores of new features absolutely unique to this product. Not sure you want that level of connectivity? No problem, program and diagnose your m-Unit manually just like the V.2 Perhaps our favorite feature is the Secure Encrypted “Keyless Go” function allowing you to turn on the ignition with a tap of the start button while your phone in in proximity like a modern luxury car, alternatively you can use your traditional key when your phone isn’t available. Make sure you review all of the features in the new m-Unit Blue in the tabs above.

    Works exactly as advertised and even better. So much simpler and more robust that the electrical system in my old BMW.

    motogadget m-unit

    Posted by Brent B. on Sep 28th 2017

    If you'r rewiring an old bike, seriously consider using this with the wiring kit. I have no wiring experience. The m-unit simplified the job, the wiring kit made the intimidating chore approachable.

    Project Engine Swap Done no problems

    Posted by Leo H. on Sep 17th 2017

    Every stock switch and component works flawlessly on a Honda with an engine swap from a much larger cc Yamaha motor and it's RR and TCI.

    M- Unit

    Posted by Mac B. on Jun 25th 2017

    This was a revolutionary discovery when I watched the Revival Video and found a very simple way to wire my broken motorcycle! The staff was exceptionally helpful in teaching me how to install and trouble shoot the M-Unit and get my bike back on the road! Great technology and simple instructions!
