New Technology Adds to Motorcycle Safety
Many motorcycle riders are injured and killed when vehicles pull out in front of them. Now, in an effort to help prevent these types of motorcycle accidents, Honda had begun installing a dedicated short-range wireless communications system on its Goldwing touring motorcycles in Europe. This system will alert a rider by causing a light to flash at the base of the Goldwing's windshield which will alert of a car. The car must be equipped with a connected and compatible device, such as a GPS navigator, cell phone or another type of factory installed system.
Consumer Reports says that the US is not ready for this type of system due to the lack of a complete connected infrastructure. While several companies are working on correcting this, Honda has yet to install this system on any Stateside Goldwings.
