In summary, a HUD (Heads-Up Display) in a motorcycle helmet is a transparent display that projects information onto the rider's visor, allowing them to see important data without taking their eyes off the road. It can display a variety of information, including speed, engine RPM, fuel levels, navigation directions, and incoming calls or messages from a connected smartphone. When designed and used properly, a HUD in a motorcycle helmet can be safe to use, but it is important for riders to prioritize their focus on the road. There are currently several motorcycle helmets on the market that feature HUD technology, such as the Skully AR-1, NUVIZ, and CrossHelmet X1.

I was wondering if there was technology available that would allow for a rider to link with their bike and display a HUD (Heads Up Display) on the visor of the biker's helmet showing speed and other specs from the bike.

A couple of companies make them, (http://www.sportvue.com/)
I think BMW also does them onto the windshield on a coupe of their bikes.
You can even get HUD diving goggles.

Yes, there is currently technology available that would allow for a rider to link with their bike and display a HUD on the visor of the motorcycle helmet. This technology is known as a Head-Up Display (HUD) and is already being used in some high-end cars and fighter jets. The HUD would display important information such as speed, RPM, gear position, and navigation directions directly in the rider's line of sight, allowing them to keep their eyes on the road while still having access to important information. Some motorcycle helmets already have built-in HUDs, while others can be equipped with aftermarket HUD devices. However, it is important to note that the use of HUDs in motorcycle helmets is still in its early stages and there are some safety concerns that need to be addressed, such as potential distractions and visibility issues. I would recommend conducting further research and testing to ensure that the use of HUDs in motorcycle helmets is safe and effective before widespread implementation.
