The newest set of images leaked online are of the Honda Gold Wing, and they hint at what looks like a dual camera anti-collision system. The dual camera set up at the front of the motorcycle looks like stereoscopic cameras. These cameras use at least two lenses to create 3D images, mimicking human binocular vision.
The dual cameras are supposed to activate the Adaptive Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) to slow down the motorcycle to avoid an accident. Combined braking systems on the Gold Wing uses the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for its ABS. A combination of this ABS system and the dual camera 3D vision will introduce the most advanced braking systems on a motorcycle. Honda currently uses this system in their Civic and CR-V car models. This technology caters for lane position, adaptive cruise control, cross traffic/blind spot monitoring and speed limiting on cars.
The Honda Gold Wing is powered by a 6 cylinder, 1833cc petrol engine and has a maximum power of 125bhp at 5500rpm. It is available in two variants, the Gold Wing and the Gold Wing Tour. The Gold Wing engine is mated to a 6 speed manual gear box, while the Gold Wing Tour engine is mated to a 7 speed automatic gear box. Both variants come loaded with features that include electric windscreens, top boxes, audio speakers, multiple riding modes, cruise control, and heated grips.
The new technology is expected to be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show at the end of the year.

Considering the Indian road conditions offer a tonne of obstacles, it will be interesting to see how this feature works in real time. That said, this tech will welcomed on new age performance motorcycles where improved braking would make a bigger difference.
