Motorbike have no AIRBAGS? well…..here’s what’s new in the world.
Many have know that riding a Motorcycle is really dangerous. Though the results of the debate “who is guilty” remains uncertain, technology brings us new ways to handle serious concerns.
Today I bring you a solution by Ducati (a famous motorcycle company) who has a great video and a convincing one too about how to protect yourself in case of a crash. Now this line of vests are created for the Multistrada 1200 S Touring D-air (bike)…but I really think they got ahead with this project.
For those who don’t know, airbags for Motorcycle bike’s have been invented for some time now. But like anything new, each had a different unpleasant fact about it. If it wasn’t the esthetics it was the weight of the jacket, if not those, the time of deployment or the way it was deployed etc.
Today I bring you this TÜV SÜD certificated according to strict automotive safety criteria IEC 615058 tested to a rigorous validation and certification plan made up of more than 800 different tests.
Multistrada 1200 S Touring D|air
The Multistrada 1200 S Touring D-air is equipped, as standard, with an advanced electronics system that is an essential part of the D-air Street® system. The system is an innovative, EC-certified “Personal protective device” for motorcyclists’ safety. It is composed of two separate units that communicate wirelessly: a first unit comprising sensors and electronic components already installed on the vehicle and integrated with the on-board electronics, designed to recognize the conditions during a motorcycle crash or fall, and a second unit, which is an airbag module fitted in the Jacket/Vest that protects the most exposed parts of the body in case of impact. The Jacket/Vest with D-air Street® system, to purchase separately from the bike, is available for both rider and passenger.
