GRIPONE - TRACTION CONTROLS

GRIPONE - TRACTION CONTROLS

FIRST OF ALL

First of all, in motorcycles, still, this safety system is in its early stage of development. However, the motorcycle traction control system is available as additional device and it is steadily becoming popular in high-end motorcycles. This is because it offers greater control and safety.

Motorcycle Traction Control Systems help you to accelerate and steer properly and efficiently, which obviously makes riding safer and easier than it would be normally. It is particularly useful when riding over slippery surfaces or when the grip is poor, as it can aid you in maintaining enough grip to help your bike stay on the road while increasing your speed under these conditions.

A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO MOTORCYCLE TRACTION CONTROL

Generally, the traction control system prevents the motorcycle from drifting. It achieves this by controlling the power delivered to the rear wheel. Thus, it simply controls the rotational speed of the rear wheel. This drastically reduces the chances of drifting. There are two categories of traction control in motorcycles. The first category is reactive while the second category is predictive. The name of the categories itself suggests its working. In the reactive type of motorcycle traction control, various components of the system wait until the spinning of the wheel occurs and then make corrections (like our GRIPONE S3 and GRIPONE S4).

In the predictive type of motorcycle traction control (like GRIPONE LEONE), the ECU and various sensors read the data in real time and make changes before the wheel spins (or immediately when it starts). The system continuously judges the probability. Also, it acts fast to avoid drifting of the motorcycle.

Different types of complex sensors and ECU functions are utilized. This doesn’t allow the wheel to simply loose traction. Some of the sensors utilized include Bank angle sensor, gyroscope, throttle position sensor, gear position sensor, and vehicle speed sensor.

In conclusion, different traction control systems use different combinations of all these components in order to achieve smooth traction control. Some of these systems are so efficient that the rider simply won’t notice anything while the traction control works in the background. Hence, the rider doesn’t lose control even during off-road corners. Anyway our traction control systems can be heard because we think that it can be helpfull to the rider understand when he is close to the limit.
