BMW offers retrofit cornering ABS for S1000RR

BMWs ABS Pro system can now be retrofitted to S1000RRs made from 20122014

BMW offers retrofit cornering ABS for S1000RR




BMW has just announced that its cornering ABS system is to be made available as a retro-fit option for S1000RRs made from 2012 to 2014.

Called 'ABS Pro', the system is also soon to be offered as a retro-fit option for 2015 model-year S1000RRs, but that package will include a 'race' mode.

The firm said in press release:

'BMW Motorrad expands its ABS Pro range. ABS-supported braking when banking available as retrofit option from October 2015 for the S 1000 RR (model years 2012 – 2014), too.

The launch of ABS Pro as a retrofit option for the BMW HP4 in October 2014 represented a consistent refinement of BMW Motorrad ABS in that it also enabled ABS-supported braking in banking position on a supersports bike for the first time. In June 2015, ABS Pro entered series production in the S 1000 XR as optional equipment ex works. As part of the “Safety 360°” strategy, BMW Motorrad is quickly expanding the availability of this safety feature to other models.

Since August 2015, ABS Pro has been available for the R 1200 GS and R 1200 GS Adventure (optional equipment ex works or retrofit option) as well as the K 1600 GT/GTL (standard equipment).

From October 2015, ABS Pro is now also available as a retrofit option for the S 1000 RR, model years 2012 to 2014. Respective solutions for the Double R model years 2015 and 2016 are in the pipeline.

The retrofittable ABS Pro of the S 1000 RR from model year 2015 will also include the “Race” riding mode. The slip threshold and brake pressure gradient have been set at a higher level for use on roads with high friction coefficients compared to the “Rain” and “Sport” modes.

The ABS Pro function was deliberately conceived for use on public roads, where unexpected dangers can always potentially lie in waiting. The system provides more safety when braking while cornering. Here the system prevents the wheels from blocking even when the brakes are applied quickly in a banking position; this reduces abrupt changes in steering force on shock-braking manoeuvres and stops the motorcycle from rearing up unintentionally.

ABS Pro is therefore available for the following BMW Motorrad models now:
