Ride Vision, the first aftermarket hi-tech collision avoidance and warning system, is now available to Australian riders of any type of motorcycle.
The system works by using two small wide-angle cameras mounted on the rear and front of the vehicle.
They transmit footage to Ride Vision’s onboard processing unit, where a patented algorithm is used to detect and notify riders of collision threats in real-time.
They say it gives motorcyclists crucial reaction time to roadway threats which could mean the difference between a collision and coming home safe after every ride.
Ride Vision can be fitted to any Motorcycle or Scooter (design to fit round mirrors coming soon) and comes in two version, Ride Vision Lite ($A895) and a Ride Vision Pro ($A570 plus $US20 monthly subscription for a minimum of 18 months).
Ride Vision Pro includes everything that the Lite version offers as well as periodic upgrades for subscribed users.
Ride Vision Australia spokesman Steven Munitz says it is currently only available in NSW.
“We are looking to sell the system in all states as soon as possible,” says Steven who is seeking people interested in becoming an accredited installer.

The first 10 customers will be able to purchase either a PRO or a LITE system at a 20% discount with the code RIDEVISION20.
Similar systems are used in many cars and several companies are working with motorcycle manufacturers such as Ducati, KTM and BMW to produce similar hi-tech collision avoidance systems and warnings.
However, these are fitted to the bike from new and don’t help riders who already have a motorcycle.
With the rise of autonomous vehicles, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems will become a core feature in new vehicles.
