About Us


braking process, braking deceleration, motorbike.


In the event of an emergency, head of the motorcycle has a split second to decide what to do defensive maneuver. The most common choice is the braking maneuver. Starting motorcycle braking is associated with the selection of additional brake, which uses a driver. It is here to choose to use the front brake, rear or both simultaneously. On the course of the braking process will also influence the type of surface on which the vehicle is moving, the smoothness and atmospheric conditions. Undoubtedly, to obtain high values of deceleration may contribute the appropriate tire pressure, or the load on the motorcycle. The tests conducted here show the influence of different factors on the proper functioning of the braking system and at the same time on the delay of the motorbike. Tests were carried out for sports motorbike.
