Aftermarket ABS Staff
by Staff
I realize that motorcycle ABS can be a touchy topic, but hey, I lovethe ABS on my Beemer. Problem is, I would also like to get a nakedsportbike but, for some strange reason, they don't make these hooliganbikes with ABS. Go figure. A Speed Triple w/ ABS, how about that tofan the moto ABS flames?

Anyway, I am curious if anyone knows of aftermarket ABS or if this iseven feasible. The only thing I came across was this non-electricABS:

It works by restricting the brake fluid pressure to prevent brakeslocking. It seems woefully inadequate as it is only applicable to thecombination of weight and terrain under which it is tuned. Add apassenger or get on some wet pavement and it isn't going to preventlocking (unless you happened to tune it with that same passenger andsimilarly dampened pavement).

So, is adding a real ABS to a Triple or Monster in the realm ofpossibility, or should I just go get an R1150R?
