Bosch’s stability control system for highperformance motorcycles goes into series production in 2013. Motorcycle stability control (MSC) works by supporting the rider during both braking and accelerating in a straight line and cornering.

The technical basis of the MSC is the ABSenhanced system, which Bosch engineers in Japan have now expanded to include an array of sensors and sophisticated software. Bosch says this system offers motorcycle manufacturers and their customers a range of safety functions:

• Lean and pitch angle-dependent ABS control
• Traction control
• eCBS function for optimum distribution of brake force
• Wheelie-mitigation
• Rear-wheel lift-up mitigation
