Motorcycle airbags are finally a reality, thanks to Ducati and Dainese


A famed motorcycle company teamed up with the creators of extreme-sport clothing to design the world’s first wireless suit-mounted airbags.

Ducati Motors and Dainese collaborated to introduce the design that will offer the auto-inflation safety system that doesn’t require the rider to be connected to the bike by a release cord.

“Marking a ‘world’s first’ in the motorcycle industry and combining the innovative designs from two famous Italian brands, the new Ducati model takes a significant step forward in two-wheel safety,” Ducati said in a statement.

The Multistrada D-Air model features a fully integrated, intelligent system of sensors that wirelessly connect to the airbags inside the jackets.

Dainese has experimented with suit-mounted airbags since 2008 and its D-Air system is already available in Race and Street options. The Race version pops out of the collar to protect the neck, shoulders and collarbone, and the Street boasts a much larger bag that protects the rider’s entire torso, front and back, according to GizMag.
