The aim of this study was to study the movement kinematics of a two-wheeled vehicle (TWV) and the factors influencing the severity degree of injuries sustained by a cyclist in a collision with a car by modeling using the MADYMO software (MAthematic DYnamic MOdels). The analysis of the influence of the vehicle speed on the severity degree of injury at a certain moment of collision is carried out. It has been determined that an increase in vehicle speed has a direct effect on an increase in the cyclist's kickback distance. A quantitative assessment of the factors influencing the severity degree of injuries in road traffic accidents is given. Graphs were built and regression equations were obtained depending on the speed of the car and the time of the collision.
