Vololights – Brakeless Deceleration Indicator for Motorcycles


Vololights alerts drivers behind you to your rate of deceleration whether you are engine braking, downshifting or using brake levers.

Have you ever wished you could let drivers behind you know you are slowing down by engine braking or downshifting? What if you could indicate not only that you are slowing but how fast? With Vololights, now you can! Vololights is a powered license plate frame with it’s own set of bright LED’s.

Using embedded intelligence, it measures the deceleration of your motorcycle regardless of how you are slowing down. Deceleration is also perceptible to the driver behind you.


Vololights’ patented technology combines a 3 axis accelerometer and microprocessor to measure your deceleration from any means; whether engine braking, downshifting or gripping the brakes.


  • Harley Davidson owners
  • International/domestic riders with different sized license plates
  • Customers with fender eliminator kits
  • Riders who do not want to see additional hardware on their motorcycles but want the benefits of Vololights: Enhanced Motorcycle Visibility

We’ve got the answer for you – Vectolabs just added the modular version of Vololights!

What is a Vololights Module?
This is essentially an upgraded circuit board without the LED lights or license plate frame. It is a ‘black box’ design that will function the same although it will be installed under your seat (or other suitable location) and in-line with your current brake lights or directional signals. The module will be about 2” x 2” (5.08 cm x 5.08 cm) in a weatherproof box with two sets of wire leads on both ends.

Will the installation be difficult?
While slightly more involved than the license frame version, the module is well suited for riders who are comfortable performing simple electrical tasks on their motorcycle. The installation will require splicing into the directional signals or brake lights but we will have detailed instructions for those with limited electrical experience.

Will the module work with all motorcycles?
The Vololights Module will work on most motorcycles with standard 12 VDC running to the brake lamps or signal lamps. If you have a plate that does not fit our plate holder, this is the product for you.

NOTE: If your motorcycle uses a CanBus system, (many BMW models) you will not be able to install the modular Vololights device at this time.

    My wife and I are big motorcycle riders but we have noticed that it can be very difficult to drive because people can’t easily see what is going on. Because of that, I think that a deceleration sensor would be a great addition to cars and motorcycles because it measured the deceleration of your vehicle and then notifies the people behind you that you are slowing down. That way, you will be able to feel much safer no matter where you are riding.
