Just because they call it a crotch rocket doesn’t mean that your special places have to take a beating when you go for a ride. Riding a motorcycle or a – ahem – high-powered scooter is inherently more dangerous than being enclosed in a car, but now Yamaha has taken a substantial step in making your weekend rip up the mountain a little more safe with the Yamaha ASV-3, complete with a multi-chambered airbag.
The airbag fits in between your legs and is housed underneath the seat. In the instance of a high-speed collision, the airbag deploys, hopefully preventing you from launching forward out of your seat and onto the asphalt.
This isn’t the first time that an airbag has been integrated into a motorcycle, but this is the first time that they have designed it in such a way as to ensure that you’ll still be able to have children in the future.
