The first product to emerge from their cooperation will be the DoubleR RaceAir one-piece leather suit with D-Air® racing protectors, designed exclusively for use on racetracks. The racing suit is scheduled to be presented at the international EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this November, once BMW Motorrad has completed all the required testing in Munich.

The next stage will be to develop the Dainese D-Air® Street System as a retrofit solution for BMW Motorrad. The system is scheduled to be launched in 2015, following successful completion of all crash tests. BMW Motorrad customers will then be able to retrofit an innovative safety system to their motorcycles.

BMW Motorrad and Dainese are also looking into further ways of cooperating in the interest of providing further protection for motorcycle riders.

    I think this shows great promise. It is not unlike my current project. A soft robotic power assist suit, to help people stand and walk, using a controlled inflatable suit. The air chambers could serve as cushioning while still allowing the rider complete mobility.
