This is a combined system, Suzuki stresses, not a linked one BUT when the computer senses you’re being too greedy with the front brake, it will automatically begin applying rear brake pressure to “stabilize the vehicle.” Thanks to its new advanced ABS unit, Suzuki says kickback through the lever and pedal is greatly reduced.
