TVS Wego and Jupiter now get SBS braking technology as standard

The TVS Wego and Jupiter get Sync Braking System technology as standard on all variants. Read on to know how this system works.

Rapid urbanization has resulted in the rise of the scooter segment over the past few years. While, the scooter is increasingly seen as a reliable commuter vehicle, rising traffic conditions and poor infrastructure poses several risks to the riders, thus making the daily commute stressful. Such conditions call for continuous throttle, while braking too is key to safe riding. To come to a stop comfortably, it is best advised to pull both the brake levers gently. But again in traffic conditions this isn’t always possible. Hence, TVS Motors came up with a solution in the form of the SBS (Sync Brake System) technology.

The system basically brakes both the front and rear wheels, when just the rear brake lever is pulled. Here’s how this system works in brief:

SBS relies on an innovative reaction relay lever to subtly co-apply brakes in quick succession.This braking feature automatically activates the front brake whenever the rear brake is used, thereby enhancing braking performance of the vehicle. While doing so, it triggers a single brake control mechanism called THE MULTIPLIER, which drastically reduces the force required. A pre-determined delay and force limiter function help keep this system low on maintenance too.

All the variants of the TVS Wego and TVS Jupiter will be sold with SBS as standard from now on. Both scooters are powered by a 110cc petrol motor that delivers 62 kmpl on both the TVS Wego and Jupiter under testing conditions. Both these scooters come packed with features like external fuel filler, low fuel indicator, Eazy centre stand, retractable bag hooks, under seat storage and dual side handle lock. Both these scooters compete with the likes of the Hero Maestro Edge and Hero Duet. Also on its competitors list is the Honda Activa range and Yamaha Alpha.
