GET Athena MD60-GPS Lap Timer Impression

Monday, October 11, 2010

Motorcycle-USA recently began testing the GET Athena MD60-GPS Lap Timer and was impressed with how well it works. Look for a in-depth review in the near future.
Recently we did some testing at Willow Springs aboard our Yoshimura-prepped 2009 Suzuki GSX-R600 sportbike that we reviewed in our 2010 Modified Supersport Shootout and follow-up 2010 Modified Supersport Shootout Stage 2 600cc sportbike comparisons. During our testing regiment we fitted a $399 GET Athena MD60-GPS Lap Timer in order to acquire lap times and came away impressed with how well it works.
 
As opposed to a conventional lap timer that relies on a line-of-sight infrared signal between the timer and a stationary beacon, the MD60 lap timer runs off GPS technology. This makes it much easier and more reliable to use.
 
The timer is powered via two double-A batteries and has the ability to store up to 999 laps. It uses a simple 2-button interface and can provide a host of different data acquisition functions in addition to its lap timer functionality. All the data can be downloaded and analyzed via a Windows or Apple operating system-equipped computer.
 
The MD-60 lap timer can be used on street and dirt bikes and is available right now from Apex Speed Technologies. Look for a comprehensive review in the near future.
