Honda Safety Institute: A reference in rider training

Copy Montesa Honda S.A.

The statistics do not lie because around 7 500 students have been trained at the Honda Instituto de Seguridad during its first two years of operation, something that makes it into a reference whenever rider training is referred to.

Rider safety is something that the Honda Safety Institute can guarantee. This can be seen from the figures recorded in the first two years of its operation. Both professionals as well as the general public of all riding levels, along with pupils from several schools, have already benefitted from the courses organised there.

One should remember that the Honda Instituto de Seguridad forms part of the Honda Safety Program, which started in 2004 when the European Road Safety Charter was signed. The Honda company has backed rider safety using three basic fundamentals: preventive, active and passive safety. In this case the HIS provides something extra to preventive safety with its complete training program.

In addition to this the Honda Institute has developed many activities aimed at promoting safety for all riders. The most notable being the visits made by the Repsol Honda Team MotoGP riders, Casey Stoner and Andrea Dovizioso, who together with the Repsol Montesa Honda Team trial riders, Toni Bou, Takahisa Fujinami and Laia Sanz, have all participated in some of the courses organised there.
