Aprilia partners up with head-up display Skully helmets

Collaboration will help develop new forms of rider-vehicle interaction

APRILIA has announced a collaboration with Skully, the American company pioneering the development of helmets with Head-up Display technology (HUD). 

The partnership will help develop new forms of rider-vehicle interaction for V4-MP, Piaggio Group’s multimedia platform found on the Aprilia RSV4 and Tuono 1100, according to the Italian firm.

The end result is information available through the V4-MP system will be visible on the Skully helmet visor, in addition to the features already offered by the helmet.

Skully says its helmet helps improve safety by negating the need to take one’s eyes off the road.

The helmet provides information that can be recalled with voice command and then projected onto an area of the visor that is said to not interfere with visibility.

It also features a wide-angle rear camera helping the rider to see what’s going on behind them without having to look in the mirrors or over their shoulder.

Connecting to the bike’s multimedia platform via Bluetooth, Aprilia says the helmet will display all ‘travel and vehicle indications.’
