Motorcyclists in Indiana can look forward to a future in which motorcycles will be so smartly designed that they will actually eliminate the need to wear any protective gear, like helmets.
BMW recently unveiled a motorcycle concept that the company believes would eliminate the need for wearing a helmet. The motorcycle is called Motorrad Vision Next 100. According to the company, the motorcycle would have features that would specifically reduce the risk of accidents that result in injuries.
One of those features is a unique self-balancing system that would keep the bike upright and in balance, both while it is in motion, and stationery. That significantly reduces or minimizes the risk of accidents caused by loss of balance or loss of control of the motorcycle. The motorcycle would come with a visor that would allow for a display of all controls that were hitherto contained in the control panel. The control panel, as we know it now, would be completely eliminated from this new motorcycle.
