So that motorcyclists are never alone any more
Following eCall coming into effect, the emergency system that has become compulsory on all new models of light vehicles since 1 April 2018, Liberty Rider and Inter Mutuelles Assistance (IMA) have joined forces to adapt this service to riders of motorised two-wheelers.
Even though the app is currently only available for French users, it should shortly be available in our country.
Since 16 May 2018, all French motorcyclists riding with Liberty Rider have an emergency call service operated by IMA. Even though Liberty Rider was confined to France previously, the international routes are now open.
“Our association with IMA is a turning point in improving two-wheeler drivers’ protection. The combination of our know-how guarantees safer roads for French motorcyclists and scooter riders in Europe” confirms Emmanuel PETIT, CEO of Liberty Rider.

The application combining safety and performance
A user activates Liberty Rider with a simple click before starting out.
While travelling, if a fall is detected, the user has two minutes to cancel the alert.
If there is no action from him, the alert is immediately relayed to the IMA emergency platform. If they don’t get a reply from the user, emergency services are advised with the exact details of the accident.
This all ensures that the injured person is taken care of swiftly and efficiently.
In November 2017, Matmut, Macif, Mutuelle des Motards and IMA invested in the Toulouse start-up, which is booming. New projects are being studied to support two-wheeler riders in their daily lives and provide them with further benefits.
