VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Damon Motorcycles, a leading two-wheel technology company, today announced a demo tour to preview their proof-of-concept Halo bike in major cities on the West Coast from July 11 to 14. The demo tour will follow the first public unveiling of Damon’s AI-enhanced and transforming electric motorcycle at TechCrunch Sessions: Mobility. Damon will be on the Main Stage at the California Theater in San Jose, California from 1:00 PM to 1:10 PM PT on July 10. Damon’s patented collision avoidance system will be demonstrated to more than a thousand attendees that include leading founders, investors and technologists who are exploring the future of mobility and transportation.
Damon has created the first AI-enhanced warning system for motorcycles. The patented Advanced Warning System for Motorcycles (AWSM) locks onto dozens of objects in 360º around the motorcycle, and alerts the rider to oncoming threats using visual cues and patented haptic vibration in the handlebars. The sensor array also tracks the speed, direction and velocity of up to 64 objects at once to anticipate an accident ahead of time, giving riders that one extra second needed to react. The electronically adjustable ergonomics unique to Damon motorcycles is capable of accommodating diverse road conditions, providing a safer, smarter and more adaptable motorcycle for two-wheel commuters.
“We built what every rider dreams of: a motorcycle that can adapt to the changing road conditions, perfectly suited for inner city commutes, winding back roads and everything in between,” said Jay Giraud, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Damon Motorcycles. “Having a Damon motorcycle means having an upright commuter bike, a forgiving touring bike and an exhilarating sport bike, all-in-one.”
The motorcycle is an ideal vehicle for saving time and reducing congestion for commuting, nestled between lower range freeway-restricted scooters and e-bikes and full-size cars. Yet, as semi-autonomous cars become more common, motorcycles are and have long been perceived as unsafe, intimidating and hard to ride, leading to a widening gap in user adoption. As congestion increases in cities as a result of a growing urban population and access to cars is restricted, innovation is vital for commuters that depend on motorcycles for cross-city commuting.
Major police forces are scheduled to test ride and pre-order Damon’s 360º Advanced Warning System for Motorcycles (AWSM) for their fleets. Motorcycle manufacturers have also scheduled test rides to consider factory integration on their next generation of motorcycles.
