Enhancing safety on the roads is one of Honda's top priorities. We firmly believe that the realization of a comfortable and an enjoyable mobile society depends on the mutual trust that automobile manufacturers like us, share with the consumers and society. At Honda, we use a three prong approach, based on preventing accidents from happening in the first place, minimizing injury in the unlikely event of an accident and our Driving Safety Promotion operations.
Honda's safety philosophy emphasizes the development of appropriate technologies for its products, so as to ultimately achieve maximum riding comfort for its customers. Honda was the first manufacturer in Japan to develop and apply the anti-lock brake system. Educating the world, Honda is actively involved with driving education across the world for promoting traffic safety.
The Honda Riding Trainer
The Honda Riding Trainer is a state-of-the-art, compact, computer driven machine that puts riders in real life road traffic situations through a wide variety of options. The Riding Trainer can reproduce various traffic situations that occur on roads, offering the user a safe way to experience hazardous situations. Further, users can repeatedly play back and view from various angles the dangers concealed in road traffic and the processes leading to accidents and hazardous situations, confirming them with their own eyes. The Trainer therefore allows users to deepen their understanding of safety and functions as an effective training tool for hazard prediction for all riders from beginners to advanced riders. It also gives beginners a chance to practice clutching and other motorcycle operations before riding an actual motorcycle. Till date we have 125 Riding Trainer across India
ASV-2 Vehicles (Active Safety Research Vehicle and Passive Safety Research Vehicle)
Honda's development of Active Safety Research Vehicles began in 1991. Our aim is to help the driver predict and prevent danger using enhanced information support, besides providing improved visibility and puncture resistance. In the Passive Safety Research Vehicle, we are researching areas such as motorcycle airbags and impact absorbing helmets. We are also working on an information communications system to be used with both motorcycles and automobiles
