Bosch ABS, equipped with the “Cornering” feature, allows a modulation of the braking power also depending on the leaning angle. Bosch Cornering ABS EVO can be set to three different levels to fully meet rider's needs, on the road or on the track, depending on grip conditions.
Level 3 is recommended for non-expert riders or for low-grip conditions where stability and a safe braking action are required, while levels 2 and 1 are suitable for road and track use in high-grip conditions, as they privilege braking power over stability.
If you select level 2, the ABS works on both the front and rear brake, the “Cornering” feature is active, and the system also protects in case of panic stop, but there is no rear wheel lift-up control as the rider should control that, and this allows for a more aggressive braking action. Level 2 allows you to exploit the “slide by brake” feature, which means that the system allows sliding when entering a bend, like professional riders, up to a maximum yaw of 10°. Beyond this angle, the ABS will realign the motorcycle to ensure maximum stability. The slide by brake feature is disabled at angles exceeding 45°.
Level 1 is recommended only for dry track or wet track as long as Rain tyres are used, and helps riders to brake until in the middle of the corner (regressive braking). The ABS only acts on the front brake, there is no lift-up control, while the “Cornering” feature is still active and controls motorcycle stability when braking deep into corners and decreases brake pressure when it is excessive, thereby allowing recovery in case of riding mistakes. The system is designed exclusively for racing use and has no protection in case of panic braking when the motorcycle is leaning over.
