Honda Announces World's First Electronically-Controlled “Combined ABS” for Super Sport Bikes

Post by lamphant on Fri Jun 13, 2008 11:02 am

TOKYO, Japan, June 9, 2008–Honda has announced the world’s first
electronically-controlled “Combined ABS” for Super Sport motorcycles,
aimed at combining ABS and CBS systems into one system that applies the
basic advantages of both, while specifically addressing the
requirements of a Super Sport context.



In order to achieve this, the particular characteristics of Super Sport
bikes, such as short wheelbase, are taken into account. The system also
operates without interference to sports riding, and with an emphasis on
maintaining full rider control.


< About the New Combined ABS System >



The system consists of an electronically controlled combined “brake by
wire” system with an innovative stroke simulator. Direct motor control
ensures precise operation of the ABS. The components are divided into
several smaller units so there are more, but smaller units than in
previous systems.

The system’s effectiveness is due to four main factors:
1.Electronic control of the CBS, allowing more advanced
control of brake force. This provides a more sensitive distribution of
brake force over both wheels.

2,Measurement of rider input force on each lever. The ideal brake
force on both wheels is generated accordingly, providing optimum
distribution and minimising vehicle body reaction.

3.An “ABS modulator” which ensures late triggering of ABS, and smooth ABS intervention.

4.Small size meaning that the system’s components can be well
integrated in the motorcycle’s package. Thus mass-centralisation, a key
feature for Super Sport bikes, is supported.


All the basic ABS and CBS functions are provided, including the
prevention of wheel lock, improved balance and easy operation. This is
achieved without any compromise to stability during ABS operation.
Pitching is minimised so that the bike keeps its normal position.
Overall, sport riding performance is uninterrupted - cornering feel
remains the same and controllability is enhanced.

This technology could make the type r faster in and out of corners. Especially needed on the Accord Euro Rs etc.
