GoPro Hero5

When you’re riding a motorcycle, a GoPro camera is an essential accessory. These cameras not only let you document your adventure, but also share it with your social media followers. But there are more practical uses for the camera as well. If you’re ever involved in a road accident, the footage you get from a GoPro can provide you with clear video proof. Moreover, you can use it to share photos and videos with your friends and family.

Blueskysea DV688

If you’re planning to use the camera for motorcycle touring, then you should get a model that supports night vision and has built-in WiFi. This camera’s rear and front cameras are 150-degree wide-angle, and it also has an automatic switch-off when you turn your motorcycle on or off. It also comes with a built-in GPS antenna, allowing you to track your routes. The best moto cam will also have a built-in GPS receiver and a mobile app for convenient remote control.

Inst360 One R

When it comes to motorcycle touring, the Inst360 One R camera is a top choice. It offers several features that make it a great choice for capturing a memorable moment. The camera is waterproof to 33 feet and features four microphones for reduced wind noise. It also has smart tracking, artificial intelligence, and steady cam. It is available in two price ranges, the base model for $430 and the Motorcycle Bundle for $507, but we found the basic model to be sufficient.

Campark ACT74

The Campark ACT74 is a budget-friendly action camera that features 4K resolution, a 170-degree wide-angle lens, and shock and water-resistance. It also includes a WiFi transmitter for easy sharing of photos and videos. However, we recommend that you check out the user manual before purchasing it. While this camera does not come with a touchscreen, it offers plenty of controls for the novice.

Garmin VIRB

If you’re looking for a motorcycle camera, the Garmin VIRB might be the perfect choice. With its Wi-Fi capability, the VIRB connects to compatible computers or smartphones to record, pause, and stop recording. You can also control the camera remotely using compatible Garmin devices, such as the fenix, Oregon, and Edge. It even has an integrated LCD display, but its resolution and backlighting are lacking.

YI 4K Action and Sports Camera

The YI 4K Action and Sports Camera is a top-quality bike video camera with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. It also records in 1080P resolution at 30 frames per second. It has a built-in G-sensor that can detect attempted molestations on your motorcycle. It can also record at up to 30 frames per second at 2.7K resolution. The waterproof body and splash-proof lenses prevent water from damaging the camera. The camera also comes with a 1900mAh rechargeable battery to keep the camera running long-term.

Blueskysea DV188

The Blueskysea DV188 is a high-end digital video camera with a 2.7-inch screen and a GPS mount. While it is not waterproof, it can be easily stowed in a pocket or bike’s trunk. It is also equipped with loop recording and has a WDR (wide dynamic range) filter that prevents overwriting of sensitive files.

Auto lover DV188

The Auto lover DV188 motorcycle dash cam is designed for touring. This motorcycle camera records both front and rear views in full HD at 30fps. Its six-layer glass lens provides a 140-degree viewing angle and a 280-degree field of view. A dedicated app lets you review your footage, while an onboard memory card supports up to 32GB of storage. It also has a WiFi connection, making it easy to transfer video recordings via email.

MT1

The VIOFO MT1 is a small, low-cost digital camera designed for motorcycle touring. Its low-profile design makes it easy to conceal, and it also doesn’t take up much space. While it lacks image stabilization, its video quality is good. The camera has been tested and is well-made. We’d recommend it, but you should know what to expect before buying. We’ll talk about some pros and cons of this model.

Sena pt10

The Sena PT10 motorcycle helmet camera is an excellent option for those who wish to record their motorcycle tours or other outdoor activities. With its high resolution, the camera allows for clear images. The compact design makes mounting the camera on a helmet easy. The camera is controlled by an on/off switch with a raised red portion that indicates which way it should be pointed. However, the switch is not particularly secure, and it’s easy to accidentally rotate the camera when you’re turning it on. Thankfully, this minor issue can be easily fixed by a few pieces of tape.
