Dual-Mode ABS Now Available On MV Agusta's 2014 Three-Cylinder Models

An MV Agusta equipped with ABS.

ABS MAKES ITS DEBUT IN THE 3-CYLINDER MV AGUSTA MY14 RANGE

Varese, 23rd January 2014 - The 2014 3-cylinder models, the Brutale 675 and 800, the F3 675 and 800 and the Rivale 800 are now also available with dual-function ABS: Normal and Race Mode.

With an internal pressure sensor and independent wheel sensors on each axle, the Bosch 9MP ABS control unit offers unmatched size and weight. The ABS was specifically developed to provide safer, more effective deceleration on all road surfaces without compromising either the power or the progressiveness of the system and with the clear aim of obtaining the shortest possible braking distances.

On all models the bike control software gives riders full freedom of choice by allowing them to deactivate the ABS system via the relevant set-up menu. Furthermore, on the F3 675 and F3 800 models the ABS can be set to one of two modes: Normal Mode for everyday riding and Race Mode for the racetrack or more aggressive road riding.
