Just under two years ago Cornering ABS was a novelty brought to us by BMW Motorrad and Bosch on BMW's S1000RR motorcycle. Other companies have adapted the technology but have renamed it Race-ABS, Lean-Sensitivity.
By using an array of sensors the main control unit adjusts the amount of pressure to the pads and force applied to the front and rear brakes. this allows the rider to apply full brakes in a corner alleviating the probability of losing control of the motorcycle and crashing.
While currently in use by BMW, KTM, and Ducati, as the price of the technology drops more companies have shown interest in installing on their bikes including the smaller slower classes new riders often begin with.
