TVS Rear Wheel Lift-Off Protection System (RLP)


Rear Wheel Lift-off Protection (RLP) system is a technology used in TVS Motor’s Apache RTR 180 ABS. It automatically regulates the braking force when the bike’s rear end is likely to lift off during emergency braking situations. This system works in conjunction with the bike’s ABS unit, coupled with a gyro-sensor to detect rear-end lift. During panic braking, if the sensor detects that the rear-end of the bike is about to lift, the system kicks in, easing the hydraulic pressure applied on the brakes, thereby suppressing the lifting action.
