MILAN, ITALY — At this year’s EICMA, taking place in Milan, Bosch is set to unveil a series of groundbreaking safety solutions aimed at redefining motorcycling. Prioritizing the safety of riders on the road, Bosch is presenting advanced technologies developed with riders in mind, spanning across engine components, the electric powertrain, display, and connectivity solutions. Attendees are invited to experience these innovations firsthand at Bosch’s booth located in hall 18, booth B54.
Safety Takes Center Stage
Bosch’s commitment to accident-free motorcycling has manifested in its state-of-the-art Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC) system. Bosch Accident Research estimates that if MSC was integrated into every motorcycle, it could potentially avert or lessen the severity of 5% of motorcycle-related personal injury accidents in Germany alone. The company has also expanded its MSC offering to encompass smaller motorcycles, incorporating both 6D and cost-effective 3D sensor solutions for various segments.
Further enhancing motorcycle safety, it’s radar-based assistance systems are developed to prevent approximately one in seven motorcycle accidents. These electronic aids, with enhanced response times in emergency situations, will soon benefit from Bosch’s latest radar generation, which promises greater range and precision in object detection.
Digital Enhancements for Convenience
To ensure riders remain informed without distractions, Bosch has launched its TFT Cluster 5” display, offering crucial vehicle information at a glance. Additionally, Bosch’s Integrated Connectivity Cluster (ICC) enhances the TFT Cluster by providing seamless smartphone integration, enabling riders to easily access navigation, music, and telephony functionalities. This minimizes the need for secondary displays, allowing riders to maintain their focus on the road.
Emissions and Efficiency
While safety remains a primary concern, the company hasn’t neglected the environmental impact of motorcycles. The company is showcasing its next-gen electric wheel hub motor at EICMA 2023. This motor, combined with the Bosch Drive Control Unit, promises features such as Smooth Riding mode, electric traction control, and energy recuperation, maximizing efficiency and safety.
Simultaneously, Bosch continues to refine combustion technologies to meet stringent emission regulations like Euro 5 and India’s BS 6. Through advanced engine management systems and components, Bosch aims to boost efficiency, particularly in emerging markets still reliant on conventional carburetors.
