System Composition and Functionality Airbag module Stored in front of the rider, the airbag module is comprised of the following components: ? The airbag, which inflates to absorb some of the rider’s kinetic energy ? The inflator, which causes the airbag to inflate ? A lid, which covers the other components stored in the airbag module, and which opens when the airbag is deployed ? A retainer box, which contains and secures the airbag and inflator Airbag The airbag is made of the same type of material as automobile airbags: a strong nylon with an inner coating of silicon. Reaching a volume of some 150 liters when filled with the nitrogen gas used in deployment, the airbag is designed with a V-shaped back to help secure the rider in position. To prevent the airbag from going forward along with the rider, it is secured to the motorcycle with tethers. And to further cushion the impact of the airbag with the rider, deflation vents are located on each side of the back of the airbag. Inflator Similar in structure to the inflator used in a passenger-side automobile airbag, the inflator is a metal container and encloses an electronic ignition device, ignition agent, nitrogen gas ignition agent and other components. The inflator instantaneously responds to an electronic impulse from the airbag ECU, initiating the flow of nitrogen gas to inflate the airbag. Lid The lid is on the surface of the motorcycle and covers the airbag system components stored in the retainer box. During deployment, the pressure of the gas released by the inflator causes this lid to open
