Uno Minda launches new side stand sensor and switch range for bike riders

Uno Minda, a leading Tier 1 supplier of Proprietary Automotive Solutions to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), has unveiled a range of side stand sensors and switches that use advanced magnetic sensor technology, ensuring that riders don’t drive away with their stands still deployed.

This new range of product from Uno Minda uses an advanced mechanism that disengages the engine circuit unit when the side stand is in an unsafe position, without fail. Thus, bike riders can always be at ease while riding with the sensor in place. In addition, the sensor’s instrument console features an LED light indicator that lights up when the side stand is in an unfavourable position, keeping the driver alert when the vehicle is in motion.

Speaking on the occasion, Anand Kumar, Head of Product and Strategy, Aftermarket Domain, Uno Minda, said, "Uno Minda's commitment to customer safety led to the development of side stand sensors and switches under driving the new technology initiative. We believe in the cause of Make in India and as a homegrown brand, we have been driving innovation for over 65+ years. Without a doubt, road safety is our top priority. We know that bikes generally come with a pre-installed side stand sensor. Side stand sensors are important because getting to a corner and having the side stand hit the road can lead to a crash. Uno Minda side stand sensors have been manufactured to cater to the durability requirements on India’s rocky trails. Unwavering dedication to ensuring local production not only benefits the Indian economy but also ensures that our products are built to withstand even the most extreme conditions."

Having undergone rigorous testing, including up to 3 lakh cycles, the brand has ensured that the end product is long-lasting and reliable for every weather condition. Thus, they are robust enough to withstand rough Indian roads and extreme weather conditions.

The Uno Minda side stand sensor and switch are available at all leading online and offline retail stores, starting at Rs 172 and coming with a 2-year warranty from the manufacturing date.
