MULTI-LEVEL TRAC­TION CON­TROL

Bike India - - BOSCH TECHNO BIBLE -

Trac­tion is the ad­he­sive fric­tion force be­tween two mov­ing bod­ies in con­tact. In au­to­mo­tive speak, the grip on a road sur­face is re­ferred to as trac­tion. Ad­vanced mo­tor­cy­cles come with a trac­tion con­trol sys­tem that senses a loss of trac­tion on the go and coun­ters it by re­strict­ing the throt­tle in­put, thereby re­duc­ing wheel-spin. Selectable-level sys­tems al­low the rider to usu­ally choose among ‘wet’, ‘dry’ or ‘race’ modes to en­hance sta­bil­ity, de­pend­ing on the type of sit­u­a­tion, with­out in­trud­ing and tak­ing away the fun of the ride ex­pe­ri­ence.
