Also, this installation has brake combining, but only front-to-rear. If you apply only the front brake, the system monitors chassis pitch and other factors to determine if a little bit of rear brake would help settle the chassis and improve stopping performance. In practice, Combined ABS is nearly transparent, with a firm, consistent feel at the front brake lever. Rarely, on our test ride, did the system add more rear brake than anticipated. Even with this combining feature, ABS is still there to prevent lockup.
