Winner Automechanika Innovation Award: Bosch M Li-ion two-wheeler battery
The Bosch lithium-ion-two-wheeler battery M Li-ion won the Innovation Award of Automechanika 2016 in the category parts and components. With this award, innovative and aspirational products will be rewarded.
Thanks to its innovative lithium-ion technology, the new M Li-ion battery features a significantly higher deep-cycle resistance than conventional lead-acid batteries. And it weighs about a third less, too. As two-wheeler batteries are usually installed at a pretty high location, the low weight of the M Li-ion battery has a positive influence on the bikes’ center of gravity as well. A battery management system, the so-called balancers, ensure a balanced charging and discharging of all battery cells. The low self-discharge rate of the M Li-ion battery is yet another one of its advantages. It holds its charge up to four times longer than comparable lead-acid batteries and thus survives the winter break unharmed. Thanks to its high performance and its quick and reliable starting behavior, the M Li-ion battery is particularly suitable for two-wheelers with high energy demands such as motorcycles equipped with ABS and MSC (Motorcycle Stability Control) or electronic gasoline injection systems. By means of the new M Li-ion motorcycle battery, workshops and retailers can offer their customers a powerful two-wheeler battery for increased dynamics and more fun to drive.
At Bosch, the “Connected Workshop”, its interaction with other web-based services and the application of Augmented Reality will be a key topic at Automechanika 2016. At the 2,400 m2 Bosch exhibition booth in hall 9, the connected workshop of the future can be experienced live between September 13 and 17, 2016.
