    Hi :-)

    I have some questions on how the ABS/MSC are working.
    I know when pulling the front break handle the rear brake force is also applied, but if I brake only with the rear brake will the ABS/MSC apply brake force also to the front?

    Does it work like this?
    Apply front brake force, brakes both wheels
    Apply rear brake force, brakes both wheels

    From what I was told at the Ktm rally yes both applied regardless unless you have off road settings selected

    here are videos explaining MSC and the benefit they give the rider.
    All 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure will have it standard from the factory.
    2013 models can have it fitted for about $300 to $500 not sure on that.


    The 1190 Adventure will be one of the safest bikes on the market.. worth a test ride for sure..
