Dainese and Peugeot Scooters have signed an important partnership to strengthen motorcycling safety. At the EICMA show, in Milan 4-7 November, the two brands will display a Metropolis D-air® on the Peugeot stand. The model features after-market D-air® Street equipment, which is Dainese’s state-of-the art airbag technology designed to protect motorbike and scooter riders.
As one of the most advanced three-wheeled scooters on the market, the Peugeot Metropolis already offers excellent safety characteristics. Combine this with Dainese’s wireless D-air® Street bag and the safety level increases dramatically. The system operates in just 45 milliseconds thanks to an algorithm that identifies and recognises potential accident situations.
Peugeot Scooters had no hesitation in opting for the Dainese D-air® Street system - a system that has passed the strict certification tests set by TÜV Süd, the German certification body and that obtained five stars from the French certification body SRA (Sécurité et Réparation Automobile).
Eric Mougin, Marketing and Style Director for Peugeot Scooters, declared: “I am very glad to announce at ECIMA 2014 the launch of the partnership between Dainese and Peugeot Scooter. Our two brands are enhancing common values and sharing similar positioning in terms of excellence and high-end technology. Peugeot Metropolis D-air® is the perfect combination to answer to the high expectations of our premium customers regarding safety”.
Stefano Grasselli, Sales Director for the Dainese D-air® product line added: “We are delighted with this collaboration with Peugeot Scooters that has come to fruition at the EICMA event. Both our companies are extremely aware of issues regarding safety. For us, this is the first step in an even broader partnership with Peugeot Scooters who are the class leaders on the European market”.
