Smart Bikes

It isn’t all outlandish concept bikes and motorcycle riding robots that are the future of motorcycling. BMW, Honda and Yamaha have been cooperating to create a universal vehicle to vehicle communication system for motorcycles to communicate with other vehicles on the road. It is crucial that there is cooperation in this arena as all the vehicles need to communicate in the same language. To that end BMW will be displaying at an upcoming conference  a “connected” R1200RS, Honda a “connected” Africa Twin and Yamaha, a FJ-09  with common systems. Using accurate GPS locating, the system will be able to warn vehicle occupants of unsafe actions of other vehicles including turns and lane crossing.
