Dear participant,
Thank you very much for your interest in our survey. In the following we will inform you about the purpose, procedure and details of the survey. Please read all information carefully.

1. Purpose of the survey
The survey aims at understanding when and why you use different means of transport. The focus is on the use of motorcycles. Your opinion on electric forms of propulsion and your attitude towards the use of so-called "intelligent clothing" and "intelligent equipment" in the motorcycle sector is also important to us. We will use the results of the survey to develop a novel two-wheeler concept with electric drive. In doing so, we consider the needs of both younger and elderly riders.

2. Procedure of the survey
The survey consists of approx. 45 questions (depending on your answers the survey will skip irrelevant questions). It takes about 20 minutes to complete the survey.

3. Which data is collected?
We collect the following data:

  • Demographic data about your person (age, sex, nationality)
  • Questionnaire data on your use of different means of transport, attitudes towards electric powered two-wheelers and new types of interaction between vehicle and rider such as Smart Clothes (“intelligent clothing”) or Smart Gear (“intelligent equipment”)

4. Undesired effects and risks
No undesirable effects and risks are to be expected.

5. Voluntariness
Your participation in this survey is voluntary and can be revoked by you at any time without giving reasons. You will not suffer any personal disadvantages as a result of a revocation.

6. Possible expected benefits
You will not gain any direct personal benefit from participating in this survey. However, the results of the survey may help to develop a new type of environmentally friendly two-wheeler concept. All participants that complete the survey will be entered into a prize draw for two main prizes (KTM high-quality protective clothing Man size M and Woman XL) and twenty other prizes (e.g., shirts).
