An unplanned wheelie can catch you off guard, but, even when intentional, if it goes too far, it can result in some nasty bruises, road rash, or worse. With all of the stunt guys getting their wheels up, it seems everyone is a wheelie expert but you, even though the vast majority of riders, never get their wheel up except by accident. A little too much throttle on your new GSX-R and whoa, you’re looking at sky instead of street.
Romanelli Technologies has developed the ATS, or Anti Turnover System, to prevent the wheelie from going vertical and beyond with a 3 axis sensor installed on the bike. When the motorcycle’s front wheel rises beyond a safe limit, the ignition is interrupted, bringing the wheel back down.
There’s no information about what angle is deemed unsafe or whether it’s adjustable but it might be a nice to know there’s an electronic stop to prevent you from landing on your back with your bike on top of you.
This looks like it may have been around for a while but I haven’t seen it before, evidently, if it has been around, it never got any traction in the market, but I think it’s interesting.
Stunters, move along, there’s nothing for you to see here.
Thanks for the tip, Bob!
