AIR-BAG DUCATI IS 'WORLD FIRST'

In a claimed world first, Ducati has launched a Multistrada variant featuring an “integrated, intelligent safety system” wirelessly connected to Ducati Apparel D|air airbag jackets by Dainese.

The Multistrada 1200 S Touring D|air is said to be “a significant step forward in two-wheel safety”. 

The Multistrada 1200 S Touring D|air model will be available from late May priced at £16,450

Dainese said: “The D-air® is the only motorbike airbag system to have passed the rigid tests set by TUV SUD to obtain its prestigious certification. The system protects the rider from first impact with a total bag deployment time of just 45 milliseconds. This deployment time has also obtained certification from TUV SUD and verification from the ADAC (German Automobile Club), as well as the French SRA (Sécurité et Réparation Automobiles) who for the first time awarded five stars to an airbag of this type. 

“For the first time, motorcycle and rider are no longer seen as two separate entities, but merge together and communicate “wirelessly” to provide maximum protection.”

Dainese will continue selling its own D-air® Street system, which can be fitted to all motorcycles that do not have it as standard.
