  • Bosch quality and expertise for motorcycle original equipment and two-wheeler workshops
  • Broad range of two-wheeler spare parts
  • Esitronic Bike for effective ECU diagnosis
  • New: “Motorcycle technology and Bosch Esitronic Bike” training
The global motorcycle market is growing rapidly. According to studies, the annual production of two-wheelers will raise to more than 160 million units until 2021 – that is, about a third more than today. The increasing demand affects all classes of two-wheelers, reaching from city scooters to sport bikes. In terms of original equipment, several manufacturers rely on Bosch products such as, for instance, electronically controlled injection systems, electric drives and safety features like ABS or the MSC motorcycle stability control. Bosch is market leader for motorcycle safety systems.

Special range of spare parts, diagnostics and training for two-wheelers
Apart from original equipment, Bosch also offers a broad range specifically for two-wheeler workshops as well as for motorcyclists. This constantly updated and expanded range of high-quality spare parts, workshop equipment for diagnoses, servicing and repairs as well as special trainings is perfectly aligned with the specific requirements of two-wheelers. It has recently been expanded by new products and offers:

  • Bosch M Li-ion motorcycle battery
    Thanks to its innovative lithium-ion technology, the ultra-light battery features a ten times higher deep-cycle resistance than comparable lead-acid batteries. It delivers optimum starting power and ensures reliable performance, even at high temperatures. Not containing any acid, the M Li-ion battery is leak-proof and can thus be installed in any position. In addition, it is absolutely maintenance-free and features a long service life thanks to its low self-discharge. As a consequence, it survives the winter break unharmed. Moreover, it has been designed to cope with the extreme operating conditions of sport bikes and racing motorcycles. In Germany, the new motorcycle battery will be available from November 2015 onwards.
  • Gigalight Plus 120 halogen bulb
    In comparison to conventional halogen bulbs, the new Gigalight halogen bulb provides up to 120 percent more light on the road. This increase in light output is achieved by the optimized filament size and the glass bulb filled exclusively with xenon gas. Used in motorcycle headlights, Gigalight Plus 120 increases the visibility and thus also the safety when driving at night or under bad weather conditions. In addition, the bright light ensures a relaxed ride.
  • Horns
    For many years now, Bosch has offered horns with state-of-the-art technology and a powerful sound. Bosch also offers a broad range of horns specifically for motorized two-wheelers.
  • Spark plugs
    Due to high engine torque, spark plugs used in motorcycle engines have to cope with extremely heavy strains. Bosch spark plugs for two-wheelers are thus designed for temperatures exceeding 1 000 °C and high pressures within the combustion chamber. They stand out for their good cold-starting performance and optimum combustion. The correct electrode gap is preset at the factory. The Bosch spark plug range for two wheelers covers most of the popular motorcycles, scooters and quads - and is constantly being extended.
  • Spare parts for injection systems
    For motorcycles equipped with an injection system and Bosch components, the matching spare parts are available, too. This includes injectors, different types of sensors and lambda sensors.
Esitronic Bike: Bosch diagnostic software for two-wheeler workshops
As is the case with automobiles, the number of electronic safety and comfort systems is constantly increasing in the area of motorized two-wheelers as well. More and more frequently, two-wheeler workshops thus need test systems and software for ECU diagnosis, maintenance and repair. Based on the Esitronic 2.0 workshop-software package, Bosch therefore developed Esitronic Bike specifically for two-wheeler workshops. The software includes common European and Asian motorcycle makes and runs on Bosch KTS-series diagnostic testers. Together with the ECU diagnosis, the workshop is thus provided with any required data and information about the electrical components installed on the motorcycle. Regular updates make sure the data is always up-to-date and includes new models as well. At the current version, for instance, the special ECU function for brake bleeding at the Bosch motorcycle ABS has now also been added.

The special training “Motorcycle technology and Bosch Esitronic Bike” will inform the participants about the effective application of the Esitronic Bike software in everyday work at the workshop. Starting in November 2015, Bosch will offer this training at the Service Training Center in Plochingen close to Stuttgart.

Comprehensive support for automotive workshops Bosch workshop software Esitronic 2.0: improved functions in current version

  • Leading workshop software with new user-friendly functions
  • Step-by-step instructions for assembly and disassembly of vehicle components
  • User-friendly linkage of target and actual values
  • Simple, efficient and reliable handling of service and repair tasks
The tried and tested Bosch workshop software Esitronic supports workshops concerning vehicle diagnosis and repair tasks by providing current target values as well as troubleshooting and repair instructions. By now, more than 70 000 automotive workshops in more than 100 countries use Bosch Esitronic. In Germany, one out of two workshops uses the Bosch workshop software. Esitronic is the leading workshop software on the independent workshop market in Europe. Thanks to regular updates, current data for almost all types of vehicles is available to the workshops at any time. By means of the Esitronic Truck and Esitronic Bike modules, Bosch also provides comprehensive support for the specific requirements of commercial-vehicle and two-wheeler workshops. At the current Esitronic updates, Bosch implemented additional user-friendly improvements into the workshop software.

New user-friendly functions
Vehicle identification can be done, for instance, by means of the KBA code of the German Federal Motor Transport Authority or by the Vehicle Identification Number VIN. Once the vehicle has been identified, the workshop software Esitronic purposefully supplies the mechanic with any required data and information for the respective service or repair task to be performed. Maintenance schedules, for instance, are directly linked to the required diagnostic steps and to the reset of the service-interval indicator at the respective control unit. The direct linkage of target and actual values is yet another novelty. With just one click, this allows the mechanic to compare the measured actual values with the respective target values. Moreover, the error code leads directly to additional diagnostic of repair instructions. Bosch Esitronic automatically records all of the individual steps of the diagnosis. This protocol can then be printed out for the customer. In the same manner, values recorded during a test drive can later on be reproduced and reconstructed at the workshop.

Step-by-step instructions for the assembly and disassembly of vehicle components
Assembly and disassembly instructions of components inside the vehicle and on its exterior – including lighting devices, operating and display units as well as sensors – have now also been integrated into the Esitronic software package. Body and paint shops as well as workshops not dealing with this type of tasks at their daily work will particularly benefit from the easy-to-understand step-by-step instructions. High-resolution photos with integrated notes show the respective working steps for the most common models on the vehicle market. Bosch Esitronic also supports mechanics for service tasks such as changing the brake fluid, replacing the diesel particulate filter or even the windshield. Any required working steps are displayed in a simple and easily understandable manner – also for tasks not forming part of everyday business.

According to EU regulations, commercial vehicles must be equipped with a tire-pressure control system (TPMS) since November 2014. For the tire service on commercial vehicles, Bosch Esitronic thus also includes any required information for direct and indirect TPMS. In combination with the TPA 200 tester, workshops can easily test and program tire-pressure sensors without any problems.

Professional advice: Even faster with the Esitronic software
  • Error memories of all control units can be deleted on older vehicles as well. For new vehicles, it is done within less than 10 seconds.
  • The Esitronic software also includes data for all common electric and hybrid vehicles.
  • Esitronic can easily be integrated into ASA workshop networks. In this case, Bosch takes over the asanetwork license fees for the workshop.
  • Besides updates on DVD, regular intermediate updates are also issued online.

Bosch developed the new BEA 750 emission tester for automotive workshops regularly performing the exhaust-gas analyses required by law on customer vehicles with gasoline, diesel or gas drives. The tester is integrated into a new, redesigned trolley and stands out for its easy and ergonomic operation. At the same time, it also works with state-of-the-art technology. It is equipped with a solid-state drive (SSD) allowing much faster access times and being much more robust than conventional hard disks. The emission tester is operated by means of an anti-glare touch screen. In addition, a remote control is also included in the scope of delivery.

The embedded operating system ensures a safe and failure-free operation. The device is pre-configured allowing its immediate application at the workshop without having to perform set-ups first. The new Bosch BEA-PC software installed onto the device complies with guideline 5 and is thus also suitable for emission tests on vehicles complying with the EURO 6 emission standard. In future, software updates will also be available online thus ensuring the tester is always up-to-date and operating with latest data.

State-of-the-art measurement technology
The BEA 750 emission tester will substitute the Bosch devices of the BEA 150/250/350 series thus completing the range of devices complying with guideline 5. The new BEA 750 is equipped with a KTS 515 OBD module and a four-gas analyzer. Moreover, the tried and tested BEA 070 opacimeter and the BEA 030 for rotational-speed and temperature measurement are included as well. The emission-analysis test results can be printed on a strip printer. Furthermore, the integrated WLAN card also allows the wireless connection of an external printer to print out detailed DIN A4-sized test protocols.

Designed for exhaust-gas analyses without diagnosis, the BEA 750 can be operated in a very economical manner. If, for instance, a workshop performs some 20 emission tests per month, the device will pay off within just one year.

Economical injector tester for any workshop New fully automatic Bosch tester EPS 118 for common-rail injectors

  • Quick fitting and testing
  • For injectors of all important manufacturers
  • Precise testing in line with the “check and change” principle
  • Simple display of the test results for workshop customers
Thanks to the growing number of passenger cars and commercial vehicles with diesel engines equipped with common-rail systems, repairs on these systems become ever more attractive for automotive workshops. Bosch developed the new EPS 118 tester for an economical entry into testing common-rail injectors. The space-saving tabletop unit can be controlled easily and without previous knowledge either using the integrated touch screen or by means of a tablet PC. The precise common-rail injector test is performed fully automatically. Afterwards, the EPS 118 tester indicates if the injector is okay or if needs to be replaced (“check and change” principle). Using the new tester all common solenoid-valve and piezo injectors of the most important manufacturers on the market can be tested – besides Bosch, this includes injectors from Continental, Delphi, Denso and Siemens. The fully automatic Bosch EPS 118 enables any workshop to test common-rail injectors by its own both easily and quickly.

Precise testing provides reliable results about the injector performance
The EPS 118 tester works with test pressures of up to 1800 bar and displays the operating condition of common-rail injectors in a realistic manner. At the fully automatic test the injector is tested both electrically and hydraulically. In addition, this test performs a resistance, induction and capacity measurement and checks the different hydraulic test items. Allowing an additional and quick evaluation of the injector performance, the injection spray pattern into the injection chamber is yet another indicator. The required test values for CR injectors from Bosch and other manufacturers as well as pictures of injectors are already integrated into the database of the device. By means of a wireless LAN connection, the workshop can print out the test results combined with the customer data. Printer, keyboard and mouse can be connected either via USB or using WLAN. The tester works with a (uniphase) voltage between 100 and 230 volts and requires a workshop-standard six to eight bar compressed-air system.
