Rider assistance systems – a step ahead in safety

Bosch is the market leader in safety systems for two-wheelers. They reduce the accident risk, particularly in critical riding situations, without impairing handling dynamics.

After introducing motorcycle ABS and motorcycle stability control (MSC), Bosch is going one step further by providing innovative assistance systems that keep a constant eye on what is happening in the motorcycle’s surroundings. Using tried-and-tested motorcycle technologies as a basis, Bosch is also enhancing safety for cyclists by introducing the first production-ready ABS for e-bikes.

Advanced rider assistance systems
keep a constant eye on the two-wheeler’s surroundings

Riding a motorcycle is thrilling and a whole lot of fun, but there are many dangers too. That is why Bosch is further improving motorcycle safety and is now taking the surroundings of the two-wheeler into consideration too. According to calculations from Bosch's accident research, one in seven motorcycle accidents can be prevented by advanced rider assistance systems thanks to their ability to identify critical situations and provide the rider with effective assistance.

Using the interplay between the radar sensors, brakes, engine management, and HMI as a basis, Bosch has been able to implement an entire package of life-saving assistance features. The adaptive cruise control automatically adapts the vehicle speed to the traffic flow and maintains the necessary safe distance to the vehicle ahead. The collision warning and blind spot detection furthermore provide hazard alerts, ensuring the rider can react in time.

New eBike ABS for enhanced safety in the city and countryside

Due to the additional electric propulsive force provided by their bicycles, e-bike riders are among the most vulnerable road users. With the world’s first production-ready anti-lock braking system for e-bikes, Bosch is taking safety for e-bike riders in the city and on trekking tours to the next level. The system is based on the already successfully established ABS for motorcycles and ensures more controlled braking even in difficult terrain. The eBike ABS additionally combines the electronic regulation of front-wheel brake pressure with protection against rear-wheel lift, giving the e-bike more stability during braking. The entire system weighs only around 800 grams and is already enabled above a speed of 6 km/h.

Motorcycle anti-lock braking system

Bosch’s ABS10 is nearly 30 percent lighter and 45 percent smaller than before. It is even suitable for small two-wheelers of up to 250cc.

Motorcycle stability control

The world’s first complete MSC system detects the degree of tilt and individually distributes the braking force between the front and rear wheels.

SDCU system (semi-active damping control unit)

The semi-active damping control unit increases safety and driving dynamics. It quickly detects uneven road surfaces.
