In a few years, Team Orange from Mattighofen will receive adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection.
The first testing system in the list is the adaptive cruise control, which is a set of sensors, as well as radars – installed under the headlight and behind (on the test KTM 1290 Super Adventure S it is installed on the trunk).
Next in line comes the function of scanning blind spots. It will act on the same principle as on autos: an array of sensors installed in the tail section of a motorcycle will scan continuously the blind spots and alert the rider when a vehicle is detected, plus this system will also involve warning lights integrated in the mirrors, possibly with another indicator on the dash.
Serial motorcycles will receive the systems approximately by 2021, and the touring models are most likely to be the first on the waiting list.
