2015 Piaggio Beverly Sport Touring 350ie ABS on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Innovative, State of the Art…
The new Beverly SportTouring is the first scooter on the market which can be equipped with the ABS/ASR package for optimum vehicle management even in the most delicate situations, such as in the event of a sudden loss of grip in emergency acceleration or braking.
Both the wheels are equipped with a tone wheel and a sensor for instantaneous detection of rotation speed. The sensors are connected to a two channel hydraulic control unit which, through servo valves regulates the pressure to the braking system, activating the ABS at the moment in which the wheel tends to lock up.
The final result is total and constant grip for the tyres, with a consequent decrease in the braking distance.
