New Study: Motorcycle Helmets Decrease Facial Injuries

Motorcycle helmet safety has been a hot button issue as of late, especially in the wake of last month’s federal study conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC). While the CDC examination focuses on motorcycle-related fatalities, a new study published on Monday in the Archives of Surgery, centers on an often-overlooked byproduct of motorcycle collisions.

2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale Recalled

Ducati North America has just announced that it is recalling 375 model-year 2012 1199 Panigale superbikes due to rear suspension concerns. Apparently, certain 1199 models contain a defective screw, which is used for retaining the swingarm to the rear suspension linkage.

Allstate’s Motorcycle Awareness Signs

The Allstate Insurance Company announced that it will install motorcycle warning signs in dangerous U.S. intersections in 30 cities this year. The first ones were recently erected at the intersection President and Pratt in Baltimore, the site of two bad, non-fatal motorcycle crashes in the past few years, and Atlanta, said Allstate spokesman Adam Polak.

CDC: Statistics Show Motorcycle Helmet Laws Save Lives

A new federal study has concluded that fewer motorcyclists die in states that require riders to where helmets. The study, which was conducted by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), also found that the cost to society is much lower in states that have helmet laws on the books. Interestingly, the study determined that roughly fives times as many no-helmet biker deaths occur in states with less stringent helmet laws.

However, they don’t skimp on style in order to achieve this. The Xcelerator (cheesy spelling, yes) is a one-piece riding leather suit which exemplifies the highly capable gear Teknic can offer to a motorcycle rider.
