The Smart Turn System (STS) is an intelligent device that automatically cancels a flashing turn-signal after turns, lane changes, roundabouts and most other manoeuvres. It uses an advanced motion sensor to recognise the manoeuver and so determine the correct moment to cancel the turn-signal.

The STS is compatible with all mechanical indicator switches: those that have to be cancelled manually.
It is not compatible with electronic or Can-Bus based switches such as those used on some current Ducati and BMW motorcycles.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a generic product which is displayed by default for all bike models. However, please check carefully the product description to confirm compatibility with your bike.
Benefits of the Smart Turn System
Most motorcycles have a mechanical manual indicator switch. This requires the rider to manually cancel the turn-signal. Very few bikes have an automatic system and even these are prone to error.
40% of riders report that they have experienced dangerous situations as a result of turn-signals such as
- Late cancelling of a turn-signal due to busy traffic conditions
It is hard to believe that despite the advanced electronics of modern motorcycles, something as safety-related as turn signals have not benefitted from the same advances we take for granted in cars. The Smart Turn System provides the same quality of automatic turn-signal cancellation as found in cars

How does it work?
The STS is installed in-between the indicator switch and the indicator control relay.
When the indicator is activated, the STS controls the flasher relay, not the mechanical switch on the handlebar and so is able to also cancel the turn-signal independently of the switch.
The STS is superior to other systems due to its advanced sensor: checking lean angle, direction, vibration and acceleration many times per second. The sensor provides the data, and the inbuilt movement definitions allow it to recognise typical bike movements, based on testing with many motorcycles, riders and manoeuvres.
The STS will detect left and right turns, changes of lane, overtaking and roundabout exits (in the case of not detecting a turn, it will cancel after 15 seconds of driving).
The most important reason to use the STS is that it allows the rider to focus on the next riding decision, not the last one.

Comparison with other automatic turn-signal cancelling systems
Common methods used by other systems are:
No simple solution will work 100% of the time since riding a motorcycle is not a simple procedure.
The Smart Turn System is far more accurate than other systems as it senses various parameters:
These parameters are compared with a library of manoeuvres stored in the STS memory to ensure the indicators are cancelled at the correct moment.
