Bosch, the Germany based company responsible for making safety electronics for automobile industry came with their two-wheeler and power-sports division in Japan last year. The new division is based in Yokohama, Japan and also has branches across the globe in countries including India, Europe, China and the USA.

This division is solely responsible for developing electronic parts to the bike industry. They have developed a new breed of anti-lock braking system (ABS) for smaller capacity motorcycles. The new ABS is designed specially for motorcycles below 250cc category. It has been named as ABS10 and is reported to be 30 per cent lighter and 45 per cent smaller as compared to the ABS9 unit.

The ABS10 will be available in two models including one channel (front wheel) ABS which will be the most cost effective unit and will make way to the entry level commuter motorcycles while two-channel (both wheels) ABS will be used in slightly higher priced bikes. Since ABS will be made mandatory in India in 2017, ABS10 will sit alongside the ABS9 and will not be a replacement of the latter. Let us know your views on the same in the comment section below.
