MAPUSA – Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) recently launched Honda Riding Trainer at its Counto Honda showroom in Mapusa. The assistant director of transport, Mapusa, Mr Kundaikar inaugurated the riding trainer, informs a press release issued here.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Virendra Kumar, area in charge, HMSI (sales) said, “Honda is committed to develop ‘safe riding environment’ by educating two wheeler riders on safe riding measures as part of its ‘4S’ dealership concept”. The concept stands for Sales, Service, Spares and Safety.
In first phase HMSI has introduced Riding Trainers at 42 of their dealers across India. This year another 126 units will be added. All these dealers will have specially trained safety advisors by Honda to educate customers on safe riding.
The riding trainer as a tool will make a strong contribution to raising safety awareness. The trainer can reproduce various traffic situations that occur on roads, offering the user a safe way to experience hazardous situations.
Furthermore, users can repeatedly play back and view from various angles the dangers concealed in road traffic and the processes leading to accidents and hazardous situations, confirming them with their own eyes.
The trainer therefore allows users to deepen their understanding of safety and functions as an effective training tool for hazard prediction for all riders from beginners to advance.
It also gives beginners a chance to practice clutch and throttle coordination, gear changing, brake operations etc before riding an actual motorcycle, adds the release.
