In case you missed out, the US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended mandatory anti-lock braking system (ABS) brakes on all-motorcycles with the aim of achieving a greater amount of safety in the growing concerns of it.
In today’s world, the ABS systems of motorcycles, particularly those with IMU-driven, lean angle-sensitive cornering functionality, are an impeccable creation and contribution towards safety.
For that reason, it is inevitable that ABS would provide better security to riders considering the concerns of accidents involving motorcycles. Despite the fact that conventional bikers would dislike the added weight or cost, there is no doubt that having the ABS system would be a wise decision.
With that being said, the NTSB’s latest motorcycle safety recommendations now include “4. Require all new motorcycles manufactured for on-road use in the United States be equipped with antilock braking system technology.”
The board’s other recommendations include running tests and developing national standards around stability control, eventually requiring systems that meet these standards on all new road motorcycles.
