Why the heck would the MoCo go to all that trouble just to link brakes in an 8 kmh range? That's silly.Gummiente wrote:It took me a while, but I found this item in a review posted on the Overdrive website; "The system connects the brakes between 32 and 40kmph. Lower speeds or higher speeds allow the brakes to be operated independent of each other". I guess that explains why they are electronically linked.Grey Thumper wrote:Happen to know if "Reflex ABS" lets you use the rear brake on its own?
I've never owned a bike with ABS (but have ridden a few) and while I do like the idea behind it, I'm not sure if linked brakes are a good idea at any speed. in fact, on a sidecar equipped motorcycle they would actually be more of a danger than a help in certain situations.
I'm not a fan of linked brakes either. My very first bike, a Honda Reflex scooter, had them. It was hard to do tight parking lot turns on that bike, dragging the rear brake also applied one of the three front pistons.
As far as the bike itself goes, batwing baggers aren't my favorite genre. This one's kind of pricey, too. However, I suppose it's a well-executed example of the type. Everything I read about the 103 motor is positive, except for the heat. Not my personal cup of tea, but I'll give it a Cool anyway.
