TVS Apache RTR with ABS announced

TVS Apache RTR ABS  price and specification


A major share of the bike accidents in India is due to slipping at top speeds. TVS motors, the makers of Apache series of power bikes in India launched Apache RTR with ABS to counter such situations.  TVS Apache RTR ABS announced at the Auto Expo 2010.  It includes a patented technology developed in collaboration with a German firm to avoid skidding at high speeds.  The ABS technology will work at the events of heavy braking and avoid locking of  wheels to safeguard the Apache RTR.

So far ABS was a technology available in premium cars. The availability Anti-Lock Braking System in Apache would force more bike manufactures in India to come with such features to improve the security of users. Price and production launch date of TVS Apache RTR ABS will be announced in few days.

    thtz great its a gift for all engineers effort i’m very much interested to drive that version bike

  3. Subhramani says:

    Tried it out today. Brilliant control. There is no chance you can lose control.

    Awesome Bike…. And Now It Has Become More Special Due To Superb ABS System.. i.e Anti Lock Braking System..

    About ABS Brakes

    The anti-lock brake controller is also known as the CAB (Controller Anti-lock Brake).

    A typical ABS is composed of a central electronic control unit (ECU), four wheel speed sensors — one for each wheel — and two or more hydraulic valves within the brake hydraulics. The ECU constantly monitors the rotational speed of each wheel, and when it detects a wheel rotating significantly slower than the others — a condition indicative of impending wheel lock — it actuates the valves to reduce hydraulic pressure to the brake at the affected wheel, thus reducing the braking force on that wheel. The wheel then turns faster; when the ECU detects it is turning significantly faster than the others, brake hydraulic pressure to the wheel is increased so the braking force is reapplied and the wheel slows. This process is repeated continuously, and can be detected by the driver via brake pedal pulsation. Some anti-lock system can apply and release braking pressure 16 times per second.

    The ECU is programmed to disregard differences in wheel rotative speed below a critical threshold, because when the car is turning, the two wheels towards the center of the curve turn slower than the outer two. For this same reason, a differential is used in virtually all roadgoing vehicles.

    If a fault develops in any part of the ABS, a warning light will usually be illuminated on the vehicle instrument panel, and the ABS will be disabled until the fault is rectified.
    [edit] Additional developments

    Modern Electronic Stability Control (ESC or ESP) systems are an evolution of the ABS concept. Here, a minimum of two additional sensors are added to help the system work: these are a steering wheel angle sensor, and a gyroscopic sensor. The theory of operation is simple: when the gyroscopic sensor detects that the direction taken by the car does not coincide with what the steering wheel sensor reports, the ESC software will brake the necessary individual wheel(s) (up to three with the most sophisticated systems), so that the vehicle goes the way the driver intends. The steering wheel sensor also helps in the operation of Cornering Brake Control (CBC), since this will tell the ABS that wheels on the inside of the curve should brake more than wheels on the outside, and by how much.
    [edit] Traction control
    Main article: Traction control system

    The ABS equipment may also be used to implement a traction control system(TCS) or Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) on acceleration of the vehicle. If, when accelerating, the tire loses traction, the ABS controller can detect the situation and take suitable action so that traction is regained. Manufacturers often offer this as a separately priced option even though the infrastructure is largely shared with ABS.[citation needed] More sophisticated versions of this can also control throttle levels and brakes simultaneously.

    plz tell me when it ll launch ,n wht d on road prize of dis bike as soon as possible.

  9. amarjeet gautam says:

    pls tell me , is this will launch upto feb11 or not

  10. kandanram says:

    There are lot of informations coming abt the production of RTR ABS. But on thing is clear from all. We can expect the bike within the end of February 2011. The price could be approx 80000 INR. including all additional charges. Of course TVS can still prolong the releasing date for some official reasons which cannot be predicted anyhow. What we can do is JUST WAIT!!!
