An electronically-controlled combined ABS braking system that blends anti-skid and linked braking in a super sport motorcycle has been introduced by Honda.
The system combines the advantages of both braking mechanisms and applies them specifically to the characteristics of a super sport model, such as short wheelbase and high power-to-weight ratio.
The combined system measures the force applied at each brake lever and operates front and rear brakes according to the needs of the situation. The components of the system are smaller and lighter than in previous applications.
The system should be available on Honda’s CBR600RR in the near future.
