During turns or corners our motorcycles are at angles which make it hazardous for us to apply front disc brakes. It is easier to lose balance and lock the front wheel which often results in accidents. Here is one such video we got hold of when a biker hits the front brakes during a corner…

Nowadays, technologies like Cornering Antilock Braking System (ABS) have emerged which distribute the load and prevent riders from such accidents.

Check out the following video which practically explains the difference between conventional ABS and Cornering ABS.

KTM 390 Adventure, which was launched very recently, is the most affordable motorcycle in which you get the Cornering ABS tech in India. Honda CB300R comes with IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) which distributes the ABS operation on the front and rear wheel, however, it does NOT get cornering ABS as probably it does not detect the lean angle of the motorcycle.

  1. I don’t think he applied the front brake, he just lost the front end of the bike, because if he had applied the front brake, bike would have dived a bit before locking the front wheel. also normally when we apply front brake during cornering, bike goes straight and can’t lean as much.

  2. i own P150 UG3 and i usually apply front brakes… bt keep in mind not to squeeze the lever hard while turning.. just a light touch does my job..
