Can your bike’s “face” improve visibility?

Neat story on how some motorcycles are designed to resemble a human face:
[Honda's tests] found that motorcycles that resemble a human face – especially an angry one evoked with diagonal headlights – are “significantly” more visible to other drivers. Measurements taken with functional magnetic resonance imaging confirm that a more lifelike front-end design “elicits a response similar to that when a human face is seen,”
