To improve rider safety, Piaggio Group and Autoliv have joined hands to develop an airbag for two-wheelers. Autoliv is a Swedish-American company. It is an automotive safety supplier selling its products to multiple major car companies in the world.

The initial concept of the airbag has already been created by Autoliv. The brand has also conducted full-scale crash tests. Now with Piaggio Group onboard, the development will be carried out even further.

The airbag will be mounted on a two-wheeler’s frame. It will be capable of deploying in milliseconds.

Under its Saving More Lives vision, Autoliv is working on safety products specifically for protecting vulnerable road users. The company aims to save 1 lakh lives a year by 2030.
