ABS to become obligatory on 125cc+ motorcycles in Europe

Added in: News


Motorcycles over 125cc+ shall soon see ABS braking systems as a compulsory requirement by regulation in the EU after a proposal passed in the European Parliament. Costs apart, we’re sure everyone would agree on the benefits of ABS over standard braking setup.

With the CBR250R in India starting off the tradition and the soon to be launched KTM 390 following suit, we hope that very shortly ABS would become a global norm for the motorcycling world.

ABS regularisation would not only aid economies of scale, but would also eliminate the practice on the part of the manufacturer to produce different versions of a motorcycle for different countries when it comes to braking setup.
