MIROS Director-General, Honorable Dato’ Dr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim said: “We are pleased that Honda is one the vehicle manufacturers that consistently ensuring their models to have both passive and active safety technologies. Apart from increasing the safety level for the vehicle occupants, Honda has also made the initiative to equip their SUVs with technologies that are able to avoid collisions with vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists.
One such technology is the Autonomous Emergency Braking for Motorcycle in which the technology is able to detect the presence of the preceding motorcycle and subsequently avoid collision with it. We have seen Honda equip similar technology in the Civic model and now consumers who favor SUV as their family vehicle will also benefit from this life-saving technology,” he added.
