Disc brakes feature is now becoming common in motorcycles. Two-wheeler manufacturers have become more conscious than ever before about the safety of the rider. In such a situation, braking in motorcycles has now become easier than ever, but some companies have also started offering ABS (anti-lock braking system) in their vehicles with disc brakes. This feature prevents the motorcycle from destabilizing on sudden brake pressures. When the rider suddenly brakes, the wheels of the bike get jammed, as a result, the bike skid and you can be the victim of an accident. In such a situation, ABS works and protects you from accidents. ABS was some time ago an expensive feature that was available only in premium bikes but now it is being offered in commuter bikes too. In such a situation, today we have brought you the list of the cheapest ABS bikes available in India, which will not put a burden on your pocket.
Bajaj Platina 110 ABS
Bajaj Auto recently launched its popular motorcycle Platina 110 with ABS feature. Let us know that this motorcycle has been launched for Rs 65,920 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and it is the first motorcycle in its segment which has ABS installed. The Platina also gets ABS paired with a 240 mm front disc brake. An electronic controller with anti-lock braking or ABS has also been installed which monitors the tires and controls this process in sudden fast braking, which does not disturb the balance of the motorcycle. Talking about engine and power, customers are given a 115 cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder air-cooled engine in Platina. This engine is equipped with electronic injection technology which is capable of generating maximum power of 6.33 kW (8.6 PS) at 7000 rpm and peak torque of 9.81 Nm at 5000 rpm.
This is how ABS works
Let us tell you that the ABS i.e. anti-lock braking system is made up of two units, the first one is the sensor and the second one is the controller or executive. Let me tell you that this system keeps an eye on how much force you are applying the brake, if the brake power is right then it is ok but if you applied the brake with more power more quickly. So, this sensor immediately sends a signal to the controller and ABS starts doing its work and reduces the brake force or transmits as much power to the brake as needed. With this, you can stop your motorcycle in a controlled manner and the wheels of your motorcycle do not get jammed and you avoid the accident completely.
