World’s first electronic ABS motorcycle from Honda

Bike fans might be interested to hear that the world’s first ever production motorcycle with electronic ABS breaking is about to hit the streets. The streets of Japan, that is.

Honda’s new CBR600RR is a 599cc, water-cooled four-cylinder bike that features computer-controlled anti-lock braking for the first time ever, while a 999cc version called the CBR1000RR will also be available from next week.

The company says the bikes, which start at ¥1.1 million ($12,200) allow for more solid and better braking control and are, therefore, safer than standard models in some conditions.
