ACCORDING to German component suppliers, Bosch, ABS looks set to become mandatory on all machines from 2017.

European Parliament is likely to sanction the legislation before they break for their summer recess at the end of July. The imminent decision follows a long consultation process with industry bodies, manufacturers and trade associations.

It's expected that the law will insist that all new 125cc+ motorcycles manufactured after 2017 will have to be fitted with OE ABS braking systems in a bid to increase rider safety.
