Very interesting...

But, if you hit a pedestrian (or anything else) with your handlebar at just about any speed, you're going down.

Not sure how much good it will actually do the pedestrian.

Maybe in a country where they're all riding tiny little scooters at 10 MPH.

???

I would think rounded front corners would be more pedestrian friendly. They need something over there as much as they run into each other, but do not think it is a bumper. :twisted:

A must have for those who ride their motorcycles down the sidewalk! Good thing he patented the idea cause everyone is sure to want to make illegal counterfeit copies of them! :shrug:

Maybe we should strap a blow up doll on the front of the bikes, then as we are riding down the street, pedestrians will stop and stare, and they won't walk out in front of a rider. :joke:

By the time the pedestrian reaches the handle bars in a Goldwing collision, he or she has gone through enough plastic and metal that the bumper would not make a difference.

I find it hilarious the patent was filed in CN as if that is going to stop someone from making illegal copies. :lol::lol::doorag:

You mean that with this product it'll be OK to target Pedestrians?

Wow! A new and challenging sport!

It's been my experience that Pedestrians are highly mobile and very tough to target reliably!

I followed the link to the translated patent, reminds me of the motorcycle manuals from the 60's and 70's for Japanese motorcycles. Always good for a chuckle. Except translating from Chinese to English is even more fun.
