honda goldwingIt's taken 15 years of research and tons of testing, but Honda is poised to roll out the first motorcycle equipped with airbags. The bags will respond to four sensors mounted on the bike's front fork, and can inflate within 60 milliseconds of a head-on collision. The first bikes to sport the new system will be Gold Wings shipping in the U.S. next year, and we imagine that the same bikers who refuse to wear helmets will quickly disconnect this to prove that they really are impervious to injuries.
