Abstract

Motorcycle riders are exposed to extreme riding discomfort due to engine inertial imbalances, improper structural motorcycle design, and road excitation. This paper presents a survey on the perception regarding riding discomfort among motorcycle riders in Malaysia. The survey aims to gather information from motorcycle riders regarding the sources and effects of discomfort in the form of vibration and noise exposure. This survey highlights the components and factors that are related to all aspects of discomfort when riding a motorcycle. Thirty respondents with a mean age of 19 years old from two private universities in Selangor participated in this study. All respondents ridevarying types and sizes of motorcyclesas their main transportation to and from their homes and offices. The resultsindicatethat the vibration source on the foot pedal is the main factor that contributes to the highest discomfort level among motorcycle riders in Malaysia. Despite the small current sample, this studyobtained results that agree with those of previous literature.
