Which bike has the best ABS: scientific test
MCN is about to scientifically test the braking performance of a selection of ABS-equipped bikes. Which do you think will perform best, and worst, out of:
• BMW S1000RR – has a phenomenally sophisticated ABS system that will not only stop the front wheel locking, but – in race mode – allow a certain amount of rear wheel slip so you can back it into corners. As you do
• Honda Civic diesel car – typical family hatchback with typical car ABS.
Conditions look like being cold and damp.
So, what’s the predicted running order? And, for extra points, how many metres will the bikes take to stop from 70mph, given that the Highway Code says it should be 75m?
