    Singapore’s Rider Dome Tackles the Challenge of Safety for Two-Wheelers
     
    From the lens of driver safety, with connected car technologies and advanced telematics becoming fairly mainstream, it’s safe to say that four-wheelers are well covered. But what about two-wheelers? Two-wheelers happen to be some of the most used forms of mobility in certain parts of the world, both from a passenger as well as commercial standpoint. That's where Singapore-based Rider Dome comes in.
    Speaking to Auto Futures, Kineret Karin, Rider Dome’s Co-founder and COO, said that it all started when her fellow Co-founder and CEO, Yoav Elgrichi met with a motorcycle accident.
    “Yoav and I have been business partners for many years and have worked together on other startups in the past. He rides a motorcycle, and around the time when the pandemic struck, he had an accident. We had time on our hands and started to look for safety systems specifically for motorcycles, much like the ones that you have in cars today. While we looked really hard, we couldn't find anything that you could buy off the shelves and use,” she says.
    “The other thing that happened,” she continues, “was that the pandemic led to this whole seismic shift in consumer behaviour, where predominantly everything was being ordered online. This meant that there was a greater reliance on delivery fleets now more than ever. While we had already understood that there wasn’t really any safety system available for motorcycle riders, from a commercial standpoint, fleet managers have no visibility of the challenges on their riders’ safety and routes.”
    This happens to be a major challenge, especially in a continent like Asia, where a lot of the last-mile logistic reliance happens to be on motorcycle riders. Fleet managers lack the data to give them a clear picture of the motorcycle riders’ driving habits and patterns, as well as potentially dangerous routes and hazardous road conditions. Without this perspective, many of the riders either go in blind into potentially dangerous parts of certain cities or rely on their past experiences to get them through this.
    “Once the idea was concrete, we brought on board our CTO, who is an established name in the Computer Vision domain with extensive background in the space. We then developed an Advanced Rider Assistance System (ARAS) based on Vision AI, that gives on one hand to the riders alerts against critical threats on the road and to the fleet managers, we developed a SaaS platform that aggregates mass data and gives full visibility on all the safety aspects of the fleet,” explains Karin.

    Making Fleets Safer
    Cars and motorcycles behave very differently on the roads. Unlike cars, motorcycles tend to tilt, manoeuvre and drive in-between cars. Second, cars tend to have a lot more real estate - a big dashboard, a wider body, a roof. Motorcycles, on the other hand, are small and narrow. There are also cost constraints associated with motorcycles, whereas car technology is comparatively much more expensive.
    All alerts are displayed on the Rider Dome ‘Rider Alert Unit’ (RAU), which is mounted on the motorcycle mirrors stem. Red lights indicate hazards from the front (collision and safe distance alerts), while orange lights indicate hazards from the rear (blindspot). Rider Dome’s fleet safety platform is an online SaaS platform that aggregates and monitors all safety events from the fleet’s motorcycles, in real-time.The platform can be accessed from any web browser and does not require installation of any additional software.
    Speaking about the alerts, Karin says: “At this point, we tackle about four major alerts that account for 80% of motorcycle accidents. These alerts account for most of the accidents that occur, especially the blind spot alert.”
    That’s not all. All the data that is gathered from the motorcycles is centralised into a dashboard experience, which Rider Dome calls its ‘Fleet Safety Platform’. This platform monitors each and every safety event in the fleet. The mass data that Rider Dome collects can then be consumed by companies that want to monitor their fleets, insurance companies, regulators, municipalities and the likes.
    Explaining what the fleet manager can see, Karin adds: “Our algorithm makes it possible for every rider to get a score based on their driving patterns. This means that the fleet manager gets a clear picture of who is driving safely and who is over-speeding based on the type of and number of alerts a rider gets in a particular time frame."
    Rider Dome has its focus set on the B2B vertical, because, as Karin points out, B2C, “has much a longer growth journey, whereas B2B is much faster.”
    The company’s offering is vertically agnostic. Just about any company that has a fleet to manage can use Rider Dome’s solution to its advantage. And this clearly shows in the range of companies that it's partnering with - from food delivery companies to a government postal service even.
    Rider Dome is currently running a pilot with food delivery giant Deliveroo in Singapore.
    When asked about what the key learnings from this pilot were, Karin says: “From pretty early on, it became evident that when you use the Rider Dome's system, you see a significant decrease in the number of alerts and the overall safety of the fleet goes up. It's a safer environment for the fleet when you use the system. And this is something that we’re seeing through all our pilots. Once they get used to the system, the number of alerts takes a significant plunge.
    “Riders are very happy with the system. It keeps you safe. It’s just like driving a car. If you don’t hear the beeps, you feel like something is missing. It makes you feel safe. That’s just what Rider Dome does. We have a protection dome for the riders, so once you begin to use the system, you can't really drive without it because it makes you feel safe. Fleet managers are also happy. They see the riders driving more safely and responsibly, and that is just what they want. Eventually, the fleet drives safely, there are lesser accidents, which means that there is lesser downtime and lesser money lost. It’s a tangible benefit for both riders and their fleet owners.”
    According to Karin, Rider Dome has ambitious plans for the future. She tells us: “We started off with angel investment from some friends and family, but now we’re looking to raise money for our first round. We intend to use the funding to grow the company, acquire more customers, build strategic partnerships and grow the staff. Geographically, Singapore has been great for us, as we’ve been able to test things in Singapore. But realistically, it is quite a small market, and we see ourselves expanding into the rest of Asia, US and Europe moving forward. That said, we’re open to opportunities from just about anywhere.”

    More Partnerships in the Pipeline
    Rider Dome also recently partnered with Giken Mobility, the exclusive global licensee and manufacturer of the Italian heritage motorcycle brand, Iso, owned by the family of Ferruccio Lamborghini, to feature Rider Dome's Advanced AI-based Rider Assistance technology in Iso's upcoming electric motorcycle.
    “This partnership is a start for Rider Dome,” says Karin, “as it’s the first time an OEM will embed a motorcycle safety solution in its production line, and we have a few more OEMs lined up that we cannot disclose at this point of time.”
    Deliveroo, Singapore Post and Giken mobility aside, Rider Dome has some exciting partnerships that will be publicly shared very soon and many more planned in the pipeline.

    COE premiums for motorcycles rise again, hitting new record of S$12,801
     
    Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums for motorcycles rose to another new high on Wednesday (Oct 19), while prices in other categories also closed higher in the latest bidding exercise.
    This is the last tender under the current COE quota. For the November to January quarter, the supply of COEs will shrink by 13.7 per cent. Bidding under this quota will start on Nov 7.
    Premiums for motorcycles closed at S$12,801, breaking the previous record of S$11,751 set in the earlier tender this month. This is almost three times the cost of an entry-level motorcycle.
    This marks the 11th successive bidding exercise where motorcycle premiums have risen. The upward trend started on May 19 when premiums rose by a dollar to S$9,490.
    For Category A cars, or those 1,600cc and below with horsepower not exceeding 130bhp, premiums closed at S$81,089 on Oct 19, up from S$80,501 in the last exercise.
    Premiums for larger and more powerful cars in Category B crossed the S$100,000 mark again, rising to S$110,000 after dipping to S$95,856 earlier this month.
    For the Open Category COEs, which can be used for any vehicle type but end up being used mainly for large cars, prices rose to S$108,003 from S$105,001.
    COEs for commercial vehicles, which include goods vehicles and buses, rose to S$70,201 from S$65,991 in the previous bidding exercise.
    A total of 2,776 bids were received, with a quota of 1,800 COEs available.

    Cheaper Motorcycle Parking Rates in Singapore

     
    How to Get Better Motorbike Parking Rates in Singapore (2022)
    Parking fees are an extra daily expense that motorists can’t avoid. Unless you decide to use public transport to work of course.
    And while car drivers may consider $10 for all-day parking reasonably cheap, surely motorcyclists shouldn’t have to pay that much. So, we’ve put together a list of parking spots to consider, if you own a motorcycle and want to get better parking rates in Singapore.
     
    HDB Season Parking for Motorcycles
    If there is a HDB parking lot nearby, that’s always a good choice to park your motorcycle at a cheaper rate. Season parking at HDB areas in Singapore costs between $15 per month for unsheltered carparks or $17 per month for sheltered spots.
    You could even top up to concessionary season parking (CPST) for $20 per month, allowing you to park at white motorcycle lots at all HDB carparks as well as most Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) carparks.
    You can apply for HDB season parking to get better motorbike parking rates via HDB’s e-Service or via the mobile app [email protected]
     
    Coupon Parking for Motorcycles
    Another good option for parking your motorcycle is the 65-cent HDB or URA parking, payable by coupon. You can buy the parking coupons at authorized sale outlets. This includes Cheers, 7-Eleven, most petrol kiosks and other appointed sale outlets that display the “authorized coupon” signboard at their premises.
    With a coupon, you can leave your motorcycle parked at a URA/HDB parking lot from 7 am to 10.30pm or overnight from 10.30pm to 7am the following day. This is definitely the most cost-effective option for motorcycle riders that wish to park at open-air carparks in Singapore, such as the downtown area.
     
    Free Motorcycle Parking in Singapore
    Do you know there are a few parking areas around the island where you can park your motorcycle for free? These carparks do not have any parking fee imposed from Monday to Sunday including public holidays.
    Here is where you can find free motorcycle parking spots in Singapore:
    E Hub Downtown East Esplanade IKEA Alexandra IKEA Tampines Jelita Cold Storage Junction Nine Kallang Wave Mall Kinex Labrador Park Liang Court Marina Square Millenia Walk Singapore Expo Suntec City The Chevrons Jurong Central Park (McDonalds)  
    Ultimate Bonus: Free Parking for Motorcycles at Orchard
    Many people in Singapore will notice that there aren’t any parking lots for motorbikes at Orchard Road? However, if you’re willing to walk 10 to 15 minutes to your destination, you can easily find free parking for motorcycles here.
    These are a couple options of where to go:
    If you’re headed to Orchard Central, where Somerset 313, Peranakan Place and the Heeren are located, you can park for free at Concorde Hotel. If you’re headed to ION Orchard, park at the Anguilla Park open air URA car park beside Wheelock Place. There are also several URA lots behind Lido and Pacific Plaza on Claymore Hill and Claymore Road, close to the Tanglin Club and the American Club. These parking lots usually see less traffic than Anguilla Park and are worth a try if you’re tired of waiting for a spot.
     
    Park with Peace of Mind
    While in the past, it was easy to find free parking for motorcycles in most shopping centers, it seems this is no longer the case now. Motorcycle parking rates at malls in Singapore can go as high as $6 for 2 hours.
    So, if parking in a mall gets expensive, you can always seek out URA/HDB open air carparks using the parking.sg app.
    If you know of other areas that offer free parking for motorcycles? please post in comments section below.

    2023 Vespa GTS revealed: GTS, GTS SUPER, GTS SUPERSPORT AND GTS SUPERTECH
      Vespa introduced four GTS model lines for 2023. The new range comes with the standard equipment of previous models and includes four versions: the classic Vespa GTS, the contemporary GTS Super, the sporty GTS SuperSport, and the “ultratechnological” Vespa GTS SuperTech.
    Like the previous generation, the GTS SuperTech is a ‘flagship’ variant and comes with all modern electronic packages.
     

    Vespa GTS include a mild facelift, a new front suspension and two engines are offered for the GTS model, which includes the 125cc i-GET single-cylinder engine and the 300 HPE offering 23hp. Both the engines are fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder units, but the highlight of 300 HPE is its 23hp peak power output, which is its most powerful yet, as per the Vespa.
    Although the emission standards for these two engines are not specified, considering that the previous engine only has Euro 4 status, it is highly likely that Vespa has already upgraded both engines to the Euro 5 standard.

     
    This 2023 model maintains the iconic design of the previous model but to ensure this model remains fresh, Vespa offers 14 attractive colour options and the automaker has made a few tweaks in the form of redesigned mirrors, mudguard and the front apron. The bold colourways with contrasting colour elements look striking, as do the alloy wheels.
    The body of the new GTS family is still made of steel and has been paired with an entirely new front suspension. Maintaining the traditional, single-arm layout, the system has been redesigned in terms of functionality for greater stability, especially at high speeds, and to improve comfort and handling, thanks to the new suspension calibration. The Vespa GTS range also includes dual disc brakes, ABS, and ASR traction control.

     
     
    Vespa continues to focus on ergonomics and a natural riding position, which the company says makes the scooter “extremely comfortable, enjoyable to ride and accessible to everyone.” Along these lines, the new Vespa GTS also features a new seat offering comfort for both rider and passenger, as well as optimized ergonomics for easy footing on the ground at a standstill.
     

    However, Vespa has upgraded the ‘swingarm’ part to be stronger and offer better stability. Vespa has improved the level of comfort by installing more comfortable seats.
    The Vespa GTS Super, GTS Supersport and GTS Supertech are equipped with keyless start/stop as well as remote seat opening functions. They also get a Bike Finder feature that helps locate the scooter in a crowded parking lot using the remote key fob. Both the GTS Supersport and GTS Supertech models also get smartphone connectivity via the Vespa MIS app.
    The Vespa GTS Supertech is the range’s top model. It has a 4.3-inch full colour TFT display, while the rest of the models have a three-inch analog-LCD display.

    Singapore’s Emission Standards | What to Do if You Own an Old Motorcycle
    Do you own an old motorcycle? Does it meet Singapore’s tightened emission standards? Here’s what you can do about it.
    Four years ago (2018), the National Environment Agency (NEA) of Singapore introduced a scheme to encourage owners of older motorcycles to deregister their bikes before 5 April 2023. The scheme was established in efforts to further reduce emissions and improve air quality. Mainly by getting older, more polluting, motorcycles that were registered before 1 July 2003, off Singapore roads. These stricter emission standards and regulations also apply to foreign registered motorcycles entering Singapore.
    However, if you own an older motorcycle in Singapore and choose not to deregister it before the deadline, you will face tighter emission standards from 6 April 2023. In addition, from 1 April 2023, NEA is set to exclusively adopt the latest United Nations (UN) noise standards for vehicles and aftermarket exhaust systems. 
    Although older motorcycle owners and collectors can take advantage of the Classic Vehicle Scheme (for motorcycles over 35 years old) and the Vintage Vehicle Scheme (for those manufactured before 1 January), this new regulation effective in 2028 will be a game changer for older motorbikes that fall in between the years. 
    So, what can you do if your motorcycle is about 20 years old? And how do you know if your older motorcycle meets the tighter emission standards and regulations in Singapore? In this article, we’ve outlined your options and ways to check if your old beauty meets Singapore’s new emission standards.
    What to Do If You Own an Older Motorcycle in Singapore?

    Source: https://www.motorist.sg/article/166/nea-offers-s-3-500-incentive-for-de-registering-older-motorcycles
    If you own an older motorcycle in Singapore, you are encouraged to tap on the early de-registration incentive of up to $3,500, which remains available until 5 April 2023, especially if you are unsure of your motorcycle’s ability to meet the tighter in-use emission standards. 
    In the instance that you qualify for the scheme, you should have received a letter from NEA explaining that your motorcycle has qualified for it and you can check its first registration date.
    These are a few conditions to meet if you wish to deregister your motorcycle and take advantage of the cash incentive (as highlighted in the image above):
    It was registered before 1 July 2003 It has a 10-year COE as of 6 April 2018 It has been deregistered before 6 April 2023 There are two payout levels:
    Owners who renewed their COE after 6 April 2018, and deregister their bikes before 6 April 2023, are entitled to $2,000.  Owners who have not renewed their COE after 6 April 2018, and deregister their bikes before 6 April 2023, are entitled to $3,500. Does Your Older Motorcycle Meet the Tightened Emission Standards?

    Source: https://www.nea.gov.sg/media/news/news/index/in-use-emission-standards-for-older-motorcycles-and-noise-standards-for-all-vehicles-will-be-tightened-in-april-2023
    As seen from the table above, as of 6 April 2023, local motorcycles registered before 1 July 2003 will be required to meet the limit of 4.5% carbon monoxide (CO) by volume; and 7,800 ppm hydrocarbons (for 2-stroke engines) or 2,000 ppm hydrocarbons (for 4-stroke engines). The current standards are 6% CO for bikes registered before 1 October 1986, and 4% Co for other older motorcycles. There are currently no hydrocarbon limits.
    Whereas local motorcycles registered on or after 1 Jul 2003 are already subjected to the same or more stringent in-use standards.
    The good news is that you can get the hydrocarbon emissions tested during your annual inspection for a nominal fee – currently it costs $1.07 plus GST. You can get it tested at VICOM, a partner of DirectAsia.
    What You Should Look Out for if You Own an Older Motorcycle in Singapore
    If you own an older motorcycle, you should do proper maintenance checks often. Depending on your motorcycle, there may be an easy fix, or it may mean an expensive repair.
    One clear sign to look out for is smoke from your bike’s exhaust. If you see this, then you possibly should be concerned. Owners of 2-stroke motorbikes are more likely to see smoke from the exhaust, because by design, 2-strokes burn more oil. 
    Smoke from the exhaust of an older 4-stroke motorcycle could be the result of wear and tear, and may indicate that the engine requires an overhaul. Check the condition of your older motorcycle with a trusted workshop in Singapore to be sure.
    What if Your Tested Hydrocarbon Levels Are Too High?
    Here’s what you can do if you discover that the hydrocarbon levels of your older motorcycle do not meet the new and stricter emission standards in Singapore: 
    Renew the air filter of your motorcycle. Typically, you will need to change out your filter about once every year or every 10,000 miles, but this could vary from bike to bike. Typically, you should change the filter before it gets too dirty.  Use good quality synthetic oil, and ensure the filter is renewed regularly.  If your motorcycle requires premixed fuel, ensure the oil to petrol ratio is correct. Too much oil may produce smoke, too little can damage the engine. If both hydrocarbon and CO levels are high, check that your motorcycle’s oil injection system is working properly. Ensure the carburetors are adjusted properly and not running too much petrol in the air/fuel mix. Find an expert mechanic to check this. The Bottom-line
    Vehicle gas emission levels in Singapore are set to reach an all-time low by next year – so expect a weighty eye on your every move if you’re sporting an older motorcycle that’s got a few extra years under its fairings. 
    We recommend that you first weigh your options: Is it worth paying up to $3,500 for you to keep your older motorcycle on the road? And if so, does it meet the stricter emission regulations set for April 2023?
    On top of that, consider the cost of your motorcycle insurance. You can compare motorcycle insurance quotes online for the best options. If you’re undecided on which provider to go with, consider speaking to a qualified insurance professional.

    COE premiums for motorcycles continue to rise -> hitting new record of S$11,751
     
    Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums for motorcycles continued to rise to a new high on Wednesday (Oct 5), while prices in other categories closed lower in the latest bidding exercise.
    Premiums for motorcycles closed at S$11,751, breaking the previous record of $11,589 set in the earlier tender last month.
    This marks the 10th successive bidding exercise where motorcycle premiums have risen. The upward trend started on May 19 when premiums rose by a dollar to S$9,490.
    The largest price drop in the latest tender was in Category B for larger and more powerful cars. Premiums fell by about S$12,000 to S$95,856.
    This is the first time in almost five months that Category B prices have fallen below S$100,000. Premiums breached the S$100,000 mark on Jun 8 and rose to a record S$113,000 on Sep 7.
    For Category A cars, or those 1,600cc and below with horsepower not exceeding 130bhp, premiums closed at S$80,501 on Oct 5, down from S$84,000 in the last exercise.
    For the Open category COEs, which can be used for any vehicle type but end up being used mainly for large cars, prices fell to S$105,001 from S$107,201.
    COEs for commercial vehicles, which include goods vehicles and buses, fell to S$65,991 from S$67,001 in the previous bidding exercise.

    A total of 2,363 bids were received, with a quota of 1,806 COEs available.
    This is the fifth tender under the revised method for counting the quarterly COE quota, aimed at reducing volatility in supply. 
    Under the adjusted counting method, the COE supply will be based on a rolling average of vehicle de-registrations over two quarters instead of one.

    4 Tips to Avoid a Parking Fine in Singapore

    If you’ve ever received a parking fine under your vehicle’s wipers for illegal parking violations, chances are your entire day was ruined. No doubt, every driver in Singapore dreads receiving demerit points or a Notice of Traffic Offense (NTO) from the Traffic Police.
    Depending on the offense, you can receive a fine between $70 to $240. On top of that, since March 2017, an additional $20 is issued to drivers that do not pay their first NTO for illegal parking in Singapore within 28 days from the issue date. You can check for outstanding NTOs linked to your Singpass online.
    You should also note that your car insurance is at risk if your car gets damaged when illegally parked on Singapore roads. It wouldn’t matter if you have Comprehensive Insurance or a Certificate of Merit.
    Here are 4 tips to help you avoid a parking fine/penalty in Singapore.
    Avoid Parking Illegally In Singapore Not paying for parking is one thing, but parking illegally in Singapore is a serious traffic violation.
    Illegal parking violations are divided into 2 types; non-demerit point offences and offences with demerit points.
    Offences with demerit points are accumulated and typically more expensive. If you get 24 demerit points within a 12-month period in Singapore, you will be charged as a repeat offender. Repeat offenders get stiffer fines. Furthermore, if you accumulate more than 24 points, you instantly face license suspension.
    Use The Park&Go @SG App Paying for parking at a proper parking area or designated parking box is of course the best way to avoid a parking fine in Singapore, and the handy Park&Go @SG app makes it easy for you to find a spot. It lets you know if there is an available parking lot as soon as you arrive at your destination.
    If you take the risk of illegally parking and get caught for an illegal parking offence, the parking fine will probably end up costing more than what you’d pay in parking fees.
    Besides that, the Park&Go @SG app also offers other services like real-time traffic condition reports and the option to pay electronically via the app, making it easy to park at public car parks (without gantries).
    Use Your In-Car Camera If you’ve been issued a summon for parking in a HDB loading/unloading space – or any other no parking zones – but you immediately drove off after dropping off your items or a passenger, you can use the footage from your in-car camera to bolster your appeal.
     Be Aware of Parking Enforcement Cameras
    (Image Source: CNA)
    If you see lampposts or signposts with orange vertical strips, do not park your vehicle or stop to wait there. These are CCTV monitoring zones in Singapore, used to catch drivers that park illegally. Watch out for the signs that indicate parking enforcement cameras too.
    (Image Source: CNA)
    No Waiting signs and CCTV cameras have been installed at passenger pick-up points at some MRT stations too. So, keep a look out to be sure you are not committing an illegal parking offence when driving in Singapore.
    BONUS: Appeal Directly to The Parking Warden
    The waiving or reduction of parking fines in Singapore is discretionary. If you had to park illegally due to a medical emergency, your parking fine may be waived. And if you’re a first-time offender, your appeal will likely be given consideration.
