Old school style riding position with modern future bike means terrible looking combination. Get marc marquez on this bike and watch the electric bikes limit at every corner.
His toes almost hit because he had them hanging down past the pegs. New bike and new track doesn’t mean he forgets where to put his feet.
I think it’s also pretty ridiculous to assume MM93 would crash. He is the motogp champion more times than he isn’t. I think he can get a bike around a lap of a circuit he has raced at for the last several years.
On all my my most recent new motorcycles I wanted ABS as it has saved me at least a couple times on the streets from unsafe stopping conditions. I don’t rely on it as I master my own braking techniques but it is nice to know it intervene only when absolutely is required. BTW, the newer 2017 BMW S1000RR has advanced ABS Pro which detects bike via gyros.
Additionally on the s1000rr they now come with the DDC, ABS, ASC and DTC which all communicate with each other to allow a safer ride which can be all customized in your own custom ride setting..
So ABS FTW for streets, but not for track.Due to all the extra plumbing associated with ABS systems, a common problem is a spongy brake lever feel that cannot be solved by bleeding the brakes. See our article on best car seat covers.
