The Future of Motorcycle Safety
Unlike other motor vehicles like cars, trucks, and SUVs, motorcycles do not have many safety features to protect riders in the event of an accident. Motorcyclists do not have any protective barriers between them and the road, putting them in severe risk of being ejected from their bike in the event of an accident. There are also threats from weather conditions and damaged roadways. And while these risks were once viewed as unavoidable, there have been recent advancements in motorcycle technology that are increasing safety of riders.

For the longest time, motorcycle safety has been based on helmets, protective clothing, gloves, and boots. Today there are some new advancements in safety technology that go beyond what a helmet and boots can do. Three examples of this new technology are:
- Jackets or vests with inflatable padding – this clothing inflates in the event of an accident to provide extra padding for riders
- New helmet advances – helmets that provide extra padding
- Airbag Systems – these airbags are designed to slow the rate at which a rider flies off the bike if ejected
