Greater road safety in focus EU Commission recommends mandatory ABS for motorcycles

By making ABS mandatory for motorcycles, the EU commission hopes to make driving safer for motorcyclists. This requirement is part of the recently presented draft framework regulation for motorcycles, and is intended to apply to motorcycles with more than 125 cc displacement. The proposal is currently passing through the EU legislative procedure, and will likely be adopted next year. The regulation is to come into effect from 2017. On the basis of a new generation of brake control systems, Bosch has developed an independent series for motorcycles for the first time. The ABS 9 systems for motorcycles are the world's smallest, says Dr. Werner Struth, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division. This is our way of encouraging manufacturers to install this life-saving safety system in all motorcycles equipped with hydraulic brakes. Bosch began producing the new motorcycle ABS in late 2009.

Greater stability when braking hard New Bosch motorcycle ABS goes into series ABS 9 plus with integrated pressure sensor
Bosch is starting series production of a new version of the generation 9 ABS for motorcycles: the ABS 9 plus is currently the world’s smallest and lightest brake control system for motorcycles. “An integrated pressure sensor helps to detect as early as possible if the rear wheel is lifting up. This further improves driving stability when the brakes are applied heavily,” says Dr. Werner Struth, president of the Bosch Chassis Systems Control division. The new system is currently going into series in two motorcycle models. Kawasaki offers it as an option in the Ninja ZX-10R as the “Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-Lock Brake System (KIBS); Ducati is introducing it as standard in the Diavel. In early October, the EU Commission recommended making ABS mandatory for motorcycles to improve road safety.
