In­cor­po­rat­ing Kawasaki’s In­teligent anti-lock Brak­ing Sys­tem (KIBS), the setup is very sim­i­lar to the cur­rent Kawasaki ZX-10R. There is no direct hy­draulic brake line be­tween the ra­dial pump and the ra­dial caliper. The sys­tem doesn’t just man­age wheel speed, like some con­ven­tional ABS sys­tems – it’s also mon­i­tor­ing throt­tle po­si­tion, en­gine speed, clutch po­si­tion, gear po­si­tion and lever pres­sure. As it works along­side the In­er­tial Mea­sure­ment Unit (IMU), to mon­i­tor lean an­gle and other pa­ram­e­ters, the ABS is ef­fec­tive whilst cor­ner­ing.
