A  first in Indian motorsport: 2W racers wear safety airbag vests

Chennai, December 12: History was made today at the MMRT when for the first time in Indian two-wheeler racing, protective airbag vests were worn by the riders during the first round of the MRF MMSC fmsci Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship 2020.

The 10 under-18 riders, participating in the Idemitsu Honda India Talent Cup Open (NSF 250R) category, donned the airbag vest that inflates on impact, thus providing additional protection to the racers in the event of a fall.

The initiative is another big step forward by the Madras Motor Sports Club and Honda Racing to take motorsport to the next level.

Last year, Honda introduced the Moto3-spec NSF 260R bikes as part of the Talent Cup program, replacing the Honda CBR250R category, and designed to nurture Indian talent.
