There have been several air-conditioning units brought to the market (see related articles below), some integrated in the motorcycle, some not. Some are just wacky, but some have a workable possibility in a hot summer (one that I haven't seen for a couple of years here in France, despite global warming). Here's one way of staying cool while the temperatures rise; an air-conditioned shirt!
Granted, it will not work under ATGATTAll The Gear, All The Time - meaning you always wear all your safety gear. rules, but when temperatures reach baking point, very few bikers observe ATGATT rules.
Called the Kuchofuku Air-Conditioned Cooling Work Shirt, it's another one of the those wacky, but possibly nifty, Japanese inventions. The shirt has two battery powered fans which circulate about 20 liters of air per hour (5.28 gallons of air) through the shirt, cooling down the body while doing so.
So, do you think this is a workable solution for when the temperature turns up a notch or two?
And why didn't these clever Japanese put a solar panel in the back?
