    Q. What is difference between ABS and STD?
    • Anti lock braking system or ABS was been there since a very long time back but not so popular in India mainly because of the price,but was a very useful safety features. In ABS, when the brake was suddenly pressed, the wheel will not lock up and your tyres will not skid.This is very useful during rain or on muddy surfaces where traction are low.The sensor present on the wheel itself detect any sudden changes in wheel speed or if the wheel is going to lose traction.It will help you by engaging and disengaging brakes automatically so you can stop safely without skidding. In non abs, braking was more risky at high speeds and stopping distance is much longer then an abs version. The only difference in a pulsar220 is that in an ABS version there will be ABS sensor at the front disc and real wheel lift protection was there which is much safer.It is a single channel abs because of price concern but is more then enough.
    • ABS DOESN'T LETS TYRE GET LOCKED IN SUDDEN BRAKING IN ANY SPEED
    • ABS - Antilock Braking System.STD - Standard.ABS works well in every condition.STD also works well but there are chances of getting brake seized, specially the front one.Bikes which can conquer above 100km/hr needs ABS.
