Something good is coming down the way for motorcycle riders out there. The dynamics to riding are ever changing and so are the news that go with them. Recently, reports show that there has been a decrease in motorcycle accidents in Australia by 10%. It may not seem that much of a big thing but the truth is it really matters. In some parts of the world, motorcycle related accidents are a major cause of fatalities. Most of the time, the leading cause of death in motorcycle accidents is the lack of wearing the proper safety riding gear. This is what usually keeps the death toll so high when it comes to vehicular accidents, apart from driver’s error and other factors. Other things such as improper motorcycle accessories also come into play. Modders out there should really think
The 10% drop meant that riders are actually being more careful when they are out on the road. The main thing here is road safety and motorcycles are more prone to accidents since most people would argue that balance is a big factor when riding a motorcycle. Still, other factors should be taken into account when it comes to actual road safety.
In other news, a new type of motorcycle has finally hit the roads of Australia. A new fully electric motorcycle design is now on the streets of Newcastle, proving that speed does not always come at the large expense of petroleum and added air pollution. The developer, Jon Eggenhuizen says that his Catavolt electric motorcycle can compete in the streets with prominent petrol fuelled bikes in aspects such as speed, mileage and range.
All the rave about everything going electric may be a passé but for motorcycle riders, it especially looks promising. Boasting the speeds of petrol bikes but with the almost eco-friendly characteristics of a bicycle, the two wheel speed electric motorcycle is a sight to see. It is powered by charging it with solar panels and is surprisingly very quiet when out on the road. Its speed does not interfere with the quieter motor if compared to gas guzzling petrol bikes.
The electric motorcycle is a bit pricey, though. Hitting the 18,000 dollar mark but you can save a lot more on the gas bills when it comes to prolonged use.
Motorcycles, like other machines rely on the dependability of its parts for superior performance and functionality. Having the right motorcycle accessories make sure that you don’t go bust on your bike whether on the fast lanes or just cruising around the city. Using the right helmets, brakes, and other accessories on your motorcycle is all that keeps you safe and riding nicely on the open.
