Milan-based motorcycle company, MV Agusta is offering Bosch’s ABS with Rear-Wheel Lift Mitigation (RLM) for its flagship brainchild, the 2013 F4.
The dual-channel Bosch 9M+ ABS has pressure sensors that interface with two phonic wheels and can be operated in two modes – Normal and Race. In Normal mode, the ABS kicks in at will at any time, so there is a lot of electronic intervention which is hated by most steadfast riders. Whereas in Race mode, the threshold is set higher hence the reduced intervention. However, the system can be completely switched off if you ever decide to go ‘YOLO’.
Meanwhile, the RLM stops the rear wheel from lifting off the tarmac during hard braking conditions. The addition of the ABS, alongside F4’s traction control, electronic damping control and drive-by-wire throttle makes the 1,000cc Italian superbike more desired than ever.
