ABS ... it's fitted to Honda's new CBR600RR

HONDA are launching their new CBR600RR ABS to the press today and we've sent ex-PB Editor, and Bol D'Or winner, Mark Forsyth along to test it out. The new CBR600RR is fitted with a brake-by-wire Combined ABS system, which uses a separate ECU to measure the balance of front and rear brakes and to calculate exactly when the ABS should cut in.

The system has been designed to only use the ABS at the last possible moment, so it's not chirping in at unwanted times.
