No one can break the laws of motion physics. But those who have a better understanding of them are more aware of the limit ranges and can develop solutions with which the safety cushion for two-wheelers can be significantly extended. Safety for the motorcyclist also means taking into account the type of motion – sporty or comfortable – and matching them optimally with the corresponding designs: like optimal reserves for maximized riding enjoyment. Increased safety received its first boost in significance in 1976 with the motorcycle helmet developed at BMW Motorrad. Other highlights were our own rider's equipment in 1986 and the world's first motorcycle with ABS in 1988. And the research team at BMW Motorrad are still working tirelessly on further expanding these safety benefits to make motorcycling even more attractive. Reliability in every scenario. This is our understanding of technology here at BMW Motorrad.
