Dec 27, 2018
CES 2019 New Product Rollout
Holly Hill, FL – December 27, 2018 – Metra Electronics® announces 37 new motorcycle audio and lighting accessories from Saddle Tramp™ that will be on display at CES 2019. The accessories are designed specifically for a wide range of popular Harley-Davidson® models, offering OEM-quality upgrades for brighter lights and adapters to retrofit and mount new audio systems. Headlight trim rings also fit additional motorcycle models by Indian and Yamaha. Metra’s Saddle Tramp brand was first introduced in 2016 under the Metra PowerSports division and has now grown to include its own catalog, consisting exclusively of motorcycle accessories.
Saddle Tramp has designed three products with extra bright LEDs to replace factory turn signals and brake light indicators for a wide range of Harley-Davidson models. The BC-1157AW and BC-1157RD fit all Harley-Davidson models with 2” bullet style front turn signals and the BC-1156RD fits models with 2” brake/turn signals. These lights are sold as a pair and use Generation II brighter and flat-style LEDs. For 2013 and earlier models, Saddle Tramp load equalizers (BC-HDLE1 and BC-HDLE2) may be required to stop hyper flashing when replacing LED turn lights. Models with 3 ¼” housing require the BC-1157RING adapter ring.
Saddle Tramp’s 7” oblong oval shaped replacement headlight retrofits Harley-Davidson V-Rod style headlights to provide eight bright CREE LEDs and a projector lens. They are available in two styles, constructed with high-quality materials and rated IP67 for long-lasting performance. The headlights are designed specifically for Harley-Davidson 2002-2017 V-Rod VRSCAW, Muscle and VRSCDX models only. Available in chrome (BC-HDHLR2) or black (BC-HDHLR1) reflector styles.
Saddle Tramp has engineered 5.75” headlight housing buckets and 4.5” fog and turning signal light housing mount buckets to fit Harley-Davidson models, available in chrome or black. Visor style headlight trim rings with a classic 50s profile are also being introduced in chrome or black for 5.75” and 7” headlight sizes, fitting a wide range of Harley-Davidson models. The 7” trim ring extends forward giving the headlight a classic "frenched" style from the 1950s, which recesses the headlamp for an added depth appearance.
Saddle Tramp has designed eight different replacement LED tail lights for Harley-Davidson to provide bright, fast-acting visual alerts. A low-profile chopped fender edge light in a red (BC-HDTL1) or smoke (BC-HDTL2) lens color fits Harley-Davidson Sportsters with a chopped rear fender. For select Harley-Davidson Dyna, Softtail, Sportster and Touring models, a LED tail light with turn signals is available in red (BC-HDTL3) or clear (BC-HDTL4) lens colors, replacing the factory rear tail lamp. For select Touring and Dyna models, a layback, angular style low-profile tail light shaped to complement the rear fender is available in red (BC-HDTL5) or smoke (BC-HDTL6) lens colors. A contemporary style red brake and running light with white license plate LEDs tail light is available in red (BC-HDTL7) or smoke (BC-HDTL8) lens colors. Brake strobe flasher modules which allow the tail light to flash/strobe multiple times and then remain lit until the brake is released are also available for incandescent bulbs (BC-HDBLF) or LED conversion (BC-HDLEDBLF).
New Saddle Tramp adaptors allow the installation of left and right speakers at the lower fairing to provide additional sound directed at the rider, giving a better audio experience. The adapters are designed for a wide range of Harley-Davidson® models and work with the OEM hardware, installing easily with no modification required. Left and right speaker pods are included.
BC-HDLSP-1: Fits 6.5” speaker pods for Harley-Davidson 1994-2013 models with vented lower fairings

BC-HDLFSP-1: Fits 6.5” speaker pods for Harley-Davidson 1983-2013 Touring FL Models
Motorcycle audio upgrades replacing the factory speakers will be easier with four new styles of saddlebag lid speaker adapters. The Saddle Tramp adapters are made of ABS plastic, work with the OEM hardware and are sold as a pair with gaskets included.
BC-HD365-1: Each lid fits three 5.25” speakers for Harley-Davidson 1994-2013 Touring and 1994-2012 Ultra Classic, Street Glide, Road Glide and Road King models
