Motorcycles now outfitted with new technology for safety

Many Georgia motorcyclists may not be enthusiastic about the idea of entertainment technology attached to their bikes. Touchscreens are only the latest technological improvements that motorcycles have seen over the past three years. However, bikers may find that some technology may be a helpful addition on the road.

Since 2013, companies such as BMW have released bikes with touchscreens. According to Bloomberg, the touchscreens are an advantage over systems that riders put together themselves, as they can function as both GPS and radios, and reroute riders as needed. Makers of the motorcycle touchscreen systems emphasize that their main priority is the safety of bikers on the road. Riders receive statistics about their lean angles and acceleration, and one rider says he was alerted to a tire issue by his system. Current accident data may back these claims upas motorcycle touchscreens coincide with the falling of crash rates.

In addition to touch screens, there is other modern technology that can make motorcycles safer and easier to ride. The Huffington Post says that one such improvement is helmets which utilize voice recognition. With some helmets, bikers can view their environment through a rear-facing camera. Voice-activated GPS and radio are standard features. Another technological addition is adaptive headlights. Adaptive headlights aim the light based on the direction in which the motorcycle is leaning, lighting up more of the road than ordinary headlights when bikers round curves at night.  

Despite the safety concerns of modern technology, many developers ensure that the emphasis remains on a smooth integration so the new technology isn’t a distraction. Many new technologies are worked in so that bikers can worry less about their safety and have more control over their motorcycles.
