Bosch rises to the challenge

Connectivity systems

Bosch brings connectivity to two-wheelers and powersports vehicles – internally and externally. Intelligently connected on-board systems make life easier for the rider while increasing safety. Furthermore, the ability to communicate with other vehicles and the wider infrastructure offers riders new possibilities. One such innovative system is Bosch’s connectivity control unit which uses sensor and cloud data to increase dynamics while also enhancing safety, convenience and riding pleasure.

Connected mobility also means processing large volumes of data and presenting the results to riders in a clear way. Bosch’s integrated connectivity cluster is an innovative information display designed especially for two-wheelers and powersports. The system uses built-in Wi-Fi connectivity to provide access to additional features such as the mySPIN smartphone integration solution as well as access to and storage of a wealth of vehicle data.

Assistance systems

Studies show that motorcycle accidents have two main causes: riders losing control, and collisions with other vehicles (source: Bosch accident research). In the future and with the help of Bosch technology, these dangerous traffic situations will not even occur in the first place. Another reason to equip vehicles with more intelligent safety technology is that nine out of ten accidents are due to human error.

As the world’s leading supplier of motorcycle safety technology, Bosch has already made riding on two wheels considerably safer with assistance systems such as ABS and MSC motorcycle stability control. Now the company is going one step further. According to Bosch accident research estimates, radar-based assistance systems could prevent one in seven motorcycle accidents. These electronic assistants are always vigilant and, in emergencies, they respond faster than people can.

Motorcycle ABS

Motorcycle ABS supports the rider while braking, even in the case of hard braking or on slippery roads. It prevents wheel lockup, ensures vehicle stability and optimal deceleration while braking. It also contributes to reducing the risk of falling and shortening the stopping distance.

Motorcycle stability control (MSC)

MSC system supports the rider, during both braking and accelerating, and while either riding straight or cornering. The system provides assistance by continuously monitoring a comprehensive set of key vehicle data to detect critical situations and intervene if necessary. This results in a significant improvement in both riding stability and braking performance.

Powertrain systems and electrification

Bosch brings energy to the powertrain and offers comprehensive system expertise for vehicles ranging from small two-wheelers and high-performance bikes to powersports vehicles. The combination of engine management systems and sophisticated sensor systems is significantly more efficient than conventional carburetor systems. Bosch offers the full range of engine management system technology with components customized specially for two-wheelers and powersports. This includes components for fuel injection and supply, air management, ignition, and exhaust-gas treatment as well as electronic control units. Vision becomes reality: urban roads are set to see more and more electric vehicles.

As a driver of innovation at all levels of electromobility, Bosch is developing electric powertrain systems and connecting vehicles with the infrastructure and exciting services. Bosch’s activities are making electromobility attractive for the mass market. Thanks to their scalability, the powertrain systems are easy to integrate and can be used flexibly in many vehicle classes, reducing development times while helping to ready new vehicles for the market faster. Manufacturers – especially startups – can realize their concepts within the shortest time possible.
