Saving Lives Together

ABS for motorcycles


Yes, the video is hilarious. But it is serious in showing that a bike fitted with ABS brakes is a safety feature you want to look for.



Anti-Lock Braking System or ABS technology in motorcycles increases safety for riders by preventing the wheels from locking when the rider brakes and increasing the stability of the bike.
 
A 2015 report by the Monash University Accident Research Centre evaluated the effectiveness of ABS on motorcycle safety in Australia. 

The report found that the inclusion of ABS as a standard safety feature on motorcycles could result in a 31% reduction in death and severe injury in a crash.

From November 2019, a new Australian Design Rule requires all new motorcycles sold in Australia to be fitted with an advanced braking system.

The Federal Government anticipates that over a 15-year period, advanced braking systems, such as ABS or Combined Braking System (CBS), would save the lives of around 600 motorcyclists, as well as produce a net benefit of over $1.6 billion to the Australian community.
