BMW’s motorcycle division said it has completed the development of an active cruise control system for motorcycles.

An active cruise system called ACC was created together with Bosch specialists, and it, like in a car, automatically adjusts its speed, taking into account the associated traffic.

Thanks to a single button on the steering wheel, the driver will be able to set the response distance – near, middle or far. The equipment of the system consists of a radar located in front and determining the distance to the vehicle in front. The system will use the information from the radar to dial or, conversely, to reset the speed.

It is noted that during turns the system will function according to a special algorithm, preventing undesirable acceleration when the radar loses sight of the target. What models will acquire this function is currently unknown.

In addition, recently the AMB 001 bike from Aston Martin was launched for testing. This motorcycle will be released in a limited edition of 100 units. The cost of each copy will be 108,000 euros
