Pay per use, on products you own

I know car manufacturers have talked about it, some may even be implementing it.

Want heated seats that your car you bought came with? Pay a monthly subscription for them to be functional.

This is the first I've heard about it in the motorcycle world. I'm a cardo fan, but I'm not excited about this at all. I can only hope it fails.

Cardo pack talk custom

Prices range from 20 bucks a year to 40 bucks a year, monthly payment options available as well.

These options are fully available on the current gen pack talk edge, and bold(but older Bluetooth version and DMC version)

My friends and I use the bold, work great, no need to upgrade. I just don't like where this is headed considering the suggested retail of these new units are the same as the old, fully functional units.

The 2023 KTM 890 Adventure has electronic packages you can buy for cruise control, rally mode and other things. If it is a monthly subscription, I'm out. Pay once? OK, I can live with that, except all of it is already on the bike. A monthly service, no thanks. Stuff your bike. I think BMW bikes will be going this way. I think they started it with their cars already.
