Jet thruster to control motorcycle skid
« on: May 31, 2018, 01:34:19 pm »

Wonder if this will ever make it from concept to production...  Bosch is experimenting with a jet thruster system to get a motorcycle out of a skid.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Can you imagine if it saves you from 1 slide but its force can throw the bike into the opposite side flop? A lot of variables to account for when determining thrust force.......
