Scary incident regardless. Might have been tailgating the bus.
What sort of bus is that?
It looks like the Activa ploughed straight into it's bodywork without facing any resistance.

Some years back I rear ended a BMTC bus with my 'well built' Polo. Not even a dent on the bus, and I was left with a Rs40K bill.

Q. Why you should wear a helmet?
Ans. This is why:
I survived with 5 broken bones from the crash. The helmet did its job of protecting my head.

I wonder what helmet these guys are using, because short of a Shoei or Arai, no helmet muffles sound so much that you cant hear incoming vehicles. I also doubt people with shoei or arai helmets would be complaining about not hearing incoming vehicles.

The usual suspects, like Vega and Studds barely cut-off your Bike's own rattles let alone noise from other vehicles. Maybe people who complain about this are actually suffering from hearing losses due to not riding with helmets in peak traffic and since we as a general populace take pride in our ignorance, these people refuse to acknowledge that they require medical assistance.
