Now which do you prefer? Honda or Yamaha?



File this one under "Why didn't anybody do this sooner?" Yamaha's prototype isn't quite the first motorcycle airbag, but the first motorcycle airbag for your, er, tender nuggets.

Their advanced safety scooter, designated the ASV-3, has a multi-chambered air bag rigged between your legs, under the seat, to open in the case of a crash, thus protecting your most prized possessions. We're just glad to see that somebody is working to solve the "crotch + 60 mph + handlebars = pain" equation

Hal,

LMAO!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The thing is, there are some people out there that may intentionally hit something to set it (the airbag) off! :lol: :lol: :lol:

All kidding aside, looking at it I would think one's upper body would still flop forward and impact something.

Okay, so is there like a technical term for if the rider were to fly off the scooter before the bag deployed?

A couple of more stops at a DQ, and I would have on of those bags built in - no waiting for inflation -
