Kawasaki Planning to Design Bikes For The Night Riders

Riding a motorcycle at night is of course not safe, and specially if you are new to biking, then you must avoid driving at night.
But now Kawasaki is coming up with a new technology to make your night riding a better experience.
Kawasaki has developed its own infra-red night vision technology, giving riders a view beyond the range of the bike's conventional headlights. A pair of infra-red cameras are mounted behind the bike's rear-view mirrors, picking out images even in pitch darkness, these work together like a pair of eyes to give a stereoscopic view to the bike's on-board computer. These cameras calculate the distance between the bike and the objects in the front, which is displayed through a LCD screen to the rider.
The technology is of course not new and has already been used in the high end versions of BMW and Mercedes.
