Milan: Researchers develop equipment storage device for motorcyclists

Researchers from Politecnico di Milano have developed an innovative, anti-theft, waterproof, shock resistant storage device for motorcycle helmets and equipments.

This device can be folded when not in use, allowing users to easily carry it while riding, and unfolded once the vehicle is parked to store helmets and equipments that users wish to leave with the motorcycle.

Because of its high carrying capacity, its versatility, the protection provided against water, shocks and thefts, the patented device is a valuable alternative to permanent storage devices.

Its limited impact on aesthetical and mechanical performances of the vehicle and its cost-effectiveness makes it the most suitable choice for whoever refuse to use permanent, bulky, expensive, design unfriendly and performance reducing storage devices.

The patented device can be used with any kind of motorcycle, meeting many different requirements.

It is mainly made for high standard sport motorcycles or high quality design vehicles which are not suited for carrying permanent and bulky baggage storage devices.
