Post On Board Radar???


Radar-assisted safety systems are going to be one of the hot tech topics when bike firms unveil their 2020 models later this year. Ducati has already confirmed it will have at least one bike—probably a Multistrada derivative—with front and rear radar in its 2020 range and KTM is also hard at work on its own radar-equipped machines. But the European brands won’t have the field to themselves, as Japanese brands are also developing bikes that will use radar technology in the near future. These patent application images show Kawasaki’s take on the idea.

Re: On Board Radar???

Oh god. Will it also be braking and counter-steering for us as well? And, one more thing to freak out my radar detector.

Bikes are going in the wrong direction. Too much tech.....although it didn’t take long for me to like ESA and the quick shifter, and the heated grips on the K1300S. Very happy for the ABS as well even though that has never been a problem for me.
