Therefore, the Self-Lifted Stand for Motorcycle Safety (SMARTS) is designed to prevent this problem from occuring. With this system, the stand is automatically lifted up whenever a rider is in a ready position to get the motorcycle moving.
Novelty and Inventiveness
SMARTS is a new idea that can prevent the aforementioned problems by
making the side stand of the motorcycle a self-lifted stand.
This product provides an automatic operating side stand that fulfills the requirements of the user, provides the best functionality, improves safety elements is affordable for all users and is compatible with all motorcycle models.
With an automatic self-lifted system, the stand is equipped with damper mechanism that is triggered whenever the motorcycle is pulled by a rider or otherwise.
In order to prevents the motorcycle from suddenly moving without concern, hence could causing sidedown, SMARTS comes with an additional active and inactive lock mechanism inside the stand rod to overcome this situation.
Usefulness and Application
The motorcycle rider does not need to lift up the stand manually, since it
is lifted up automatically by SMARTS.
SMARTS is fully operated with a mechanical system that does not require
SMARTS is able to avoid risky situation that may lead to accident if the
rider forgets to lift up the motorcycle stand.
With an additional active and inactive locking mechanism, it can prevent
the motorcycle from sidedown as a result of by mishandling or sudden
