The backstory

Arch Motorcycle creates custom production motorcycles with a unique blend of performance and customization tailored to each individual owner. Bosch has a clear vision: no more fatalities for motorcyclists in road traffic. When the two companies met at a trade show, they saw an opportunity to introduce Bosch’s safety features to ARCH riders, focusing first on integrating two-wheel ABS (anti-lock braking system) into Arch’s high performance model, the KRGT-1. The technology supports the rider while braking, even in case of hard braking or on slippery roads. It prevents wheel lockup, ensures vehicle stability and optimal deceleration while braking. Motorcycle ABS therefore contributes to reducing the risk of falling and to shortening the stopping distance.
