      Wow, so this means they will cut down on Pirelli's made abroad and move the manufacturing to China. In all probability India might get Pirelli tyres all made in China two years from now.

            Will the air bags deploy if seat belts/PRS (read helmets) aren't worn?

              Now that's a fantastic innovation from A Star. Though the reaction should be lowered, but still it's a great thing which addresses the concerns raised by Dainese D-Air, which was designed to work only with sensors attached to the bike and hence making them bike-specific airbag jackets.

              Monk, thanks for the link bhai.

              Divya bhai: As per the article it will not ask you to wear helmet, but it may ask you to wear seatbelts while riding pillion on R15V2.

                    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

                                The Team is in the final construction stages of the latest manned prototype of Hoverbike, and in a few months they will start flight testing. After the successful completion of test flights they will build a final engineering prototype for submission to aviation certification authorities.

                                But, this all takes a lot of time and money and they have initiated a fund raising campaign on kickstarter. They have a proven track record over the years, and full dedication to the Hoverbike. Development will continue beyond this kickstarter campaign until they are ready for sale of the manned Hoverbike.
