In this system, if you squeeze the front brake lever, you activate the front brake plus up to 60% of the rear brake. If you also apply the rear brake pedal, you can increase the pressure on the rear up to the full 100%. If you hit the pedal only, then only the rear brake is activated. The rear pedal never activates the front brake.
If you go back to one of my previous posts, you'll notice that I said my comments don't apply to BMW's system. I thought only the GS had this system but if all the models have it then good for BMW. Most linked brake systems do not allow independent operation of the rear brake. Apparently BMW, Ducati, And Yamaha (on the Super Teniere) realized the problem and designed systems to fix that issue.

So you just kinda hate linked brake systems, right?

The new 2014 Harley lineup will feature linked brakes. Finally, a way to get HD riders to use the front brake.

NOT the "lineup" Only a few models will have the Reflex Linked system.

The V-Rods, Wide Glide, Switchback will have ABS Standard. As well as the whole Softail lineup but the FLD (Slim)

ABS will now be an option on the Sportster Family. I doubt that many dealers will order many Sportsters with ABS however... Most didn't want it on the Dyna line-up over the last couple of years.

We steer our allocation of bikes to ones that people actually buy.

Now if only Ducati could make a rear brake that even works LOL.
Big issue with the multi is that the fluid gets to hot from the exhaust and turns the fluid black in a few weeks. Some owners have said the rear brake will not even hold the bike from rolling down a hill at a stop light.

They work fine if they're maintained properly.

Looks like the Brudeli system, I would love to try one of these... I wonder if you steer, or countersteer...
