Motorcycles -- Test and analysis procedures for research evaluation of rider crash protective devices fitted to motorcycles -- Part 8: Documentation and reports

ISO 13232-8:2005 provides a common basis for:

  • test and simulation documentation;
  • data exchange;
  • confirmation of results by other researchers;
  • direct comparison of results between different facilities;
  • enabling other researchers to reproduce the experiment; and
  • the recommended minimum contents of publications which describe tests done according to ISO 13232.

ISO 13232 specifies the minimum requirements for research into the feasibility of protective devices fitted to motorcycles, which are intended to protect the rider in the event of a collision.

ISO 13232 is applicable to impact tests involving:

  • two-wheeled motorcycles;
  • the specified type of opposing vehicle;
  • either a stationary and a moving vehicle or two moving vehicles;
  • for any moving vehicle, a steady speed and straight-line motion immediately prior to impact;
  • one helmeted dummy in a normal seating position on an upright motorcycle;
  • the measurement of the potential for specified types of injury by body region;
  • evaluation of the results of paired impact tests (i.e. comparisons between motorcycles fitted and not fitted with the proposed devices).

ISO 13232 does not apply to testing for regulatory or legislative purposes.
