KTM first with anti-lowside ABS brakes

KTM will be the first manufacturer to sell a bike equipped with the latest generation of ABS to work as an anti-lowside braking system on the 2014 KTM Adventure 1190R. The new braking system is the latest innovation from electronics giant Bosch and is called Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC) and it’s the first time ABS has been officially claimed to work...

Poor Article title

 Title makes out that the braking system can prevent low sides.

Lowsides happen...end of story and on the road all too often as a result of dust, sand or gravel etc and no ABS system can work on those surfaces or on diesel which has no grip anyway.

Also as others have mentioned the system relies of the tyre being in contact with the road and since UK roads are inherently bumpy the front tyre is commonly skipping about and any badly setup suspension will make things even worse.

Its a great idea for perfect roads and pristine bikes

 Where does the riders skill come into the ride then? surely it is every bikers desire to master the art of biking to the best of his ability. A half decent rider would know from experience wnen the bike feels like its going to go over. The wee panic and tightening of the bumm cheeks every so often is part of the fun. It also helps you find the limit of your bike.

Relying on one wire (Pedrosa)

So, let's say you think these systems (ABS TC and Stability control) are going to make you safer. OK, you can now get on the throttle sooner exiting corners and your bike does not stand up on the brakes when leaned over, nor does it wheelie when you give it the berries in a straight line. The perfect bike that can be braked with gay abandon and behaves seemigly outside the laws of physics...

And you, like Pedrosa, will be relying on that one single wire on an exposed machine to keep you from crashing. Fact.

No thanks.

Makes Lazy Bikers

Yes I would have traction control and ABS, and yep would have this anit-lowside also

BUT - all of these things just allow a bad driver to get away with worse behaviour on the roads.

There is a real argument for restricting the maximum power of bikes (like Frogs do to 100bhp), and making drivers have to develop better skills rather than compensating for their poor biker skills.

Last bike had ABS & traction - still did not stop a collarbone break into 3 peices and metalwork.
Reason for accident - biker error.
Will this stop me gettign another bike when healed full y- No --- but I will be taking an Advanced Biker Training Course

There wasnt an option to comment on the New 1290 superduke article so im posting here. 

You got the facts wrong on the new 1290 superduke, its 180bhp not 185bhp and its 1301cc not 1290cc. 

Well done.. theres a site where the specs are actually accurate.
