BOSCH Motorcycle Stability Control – Improved Safety On Two Wheels

748101_240913-1-a-bos

Bosch has developed motorcycle stability control (MSC), the first brake control system for motorcycles to ensure the best possible stability in all riding situations. It supports the biker during both braking and accelerating, and while riding straight as well as while cornering. The motorcycle’s handling – and thus all the pleasure of riding – remains unchanged. The system will already be available at the end of 2013 with the KTM 1190 Adventure and 1190 Adventure R 2014 models.

“Almost one in two fatal motorcycle accidents occurs in a bend,” says Gerhard Steiger, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division. “The Bosch MSC motorcycle stability control can help further reduce the number of accidents.” In 2010, more than 5,000 motorcyclists died in road accidents in Europe alone. Studies show that ABS on its own can prevent around one-quarter of all motorcycle accidents that lead to injury or death. The new stability control will increase this number even further.  Continue reading “BOSCH Motorcycle Stability Control – Improved Safety On Two Wheels”
