The motorcycling industry needs to take steps like Damon to catch up or face the consequences of poor sales among younger riders and penalties from authorities.
In fact, motorcycles could even be them banned as foreseen in the disturbingly realistic film, The World’s Last Motorcycle. It depicts a future dominated by autonomous vehicles where motorcycles are banned not only because of pollution, but because of safety.
Inroads to safety
The motorcycle industry is starting to make inroads into safety with BMW, Yamaha and Honda even building self-riding or self-self-balancing motorcycles.
Helmet manufacturers are also starting to integrated technology into helmets that provide head-up display of vital information such as speed and navigation without the rider having to look away from the road at their instruments.
Jet fighter pilots have been using this technology for decades and it is now popular in many cars.
