BMW created a Self-Riding Motorcycle to further its Safety Efforts

January 22,2019

Look what BMW’s technology has done for safety!

 

BMW Motorrad has been working for over 2 years on its Self-Riding Motorcycle, and it's finally revealed.

 

First, let’s have a look at this genius creation;

 

 

 

 

This Motorcycle can start, accelerate, lean into turns and stop by itself. 1

 

 

 

However, BMW did not create it for its customers or pizza deliveries; the technology is supposed to be worked into BMW’s motorcycles, offering more stability in critical riding situations, especially that riders die at a much higher rate than that of people behind the wheel of a car. 2

 

The idea is to build these autonomous features into future bikes to save riders’ lives.

 

It is easy to avoid a crash in a car by slamming on the brakes, but if you do that while riding a motorcycle, the rider would probably fly off the bike, and this is why it took BMW 2 years of research to come up with this concept. Peyton, Vice President of the Americas for BMW Motorrad, explains: “we are asking how we can aid the rider and help them to be safer and enjoy the ride more.” 3
