Honda Develops First Airbag For Motorcycles

POSTED: 7:32 am CDT September 8, 2005

TOKYO -- Honda said it has developed the first airbag intended for production motorcycles. It plans to offer the feature on the new Gold Wing model due for sale in the United States beginning next spring.

Honda said the airbag, which inflates after sensors detect an oncoming crash, is aimed at reducing injuries in a head-on collision.

Honda said the airbag opens in front of the rider, reducing the speed at which they get thrown off the motorcycle. The idea is to lessen injuries when the rider hits the road or another vehicle.

Yea thats great. They are just balancing out the -tards who will be setting destinations on their GPS Navigation systems while they are cruising along by throwing up a catchers mit to keep them from arriving at their destination before their bike.

ahhh the Japanese. . . what cant they do with two wheels.
