Surface Tests On the ABS-equipped motorcycles, the operator was tasked with braking sufficiently to assure the operation of the ABS. The measured stopping distance values were corrected to compare data from the speeds of 48 km/h and 128 km/h, except for the BMW F650 data, which was corrected to 48 km/h and 117 km/h, the latter figure limited by that model’s top speed of 157 km/h (i.e. 75% of 157 km/h). In the ABS-enabled mode, for each load/speed/brake combination, the stopping distances were very consistent from one run to another. In this mode, the braking force was applied in a controlled and consistent manner by the ABS mechanism. With the exception of having to react to the possibility of the rear wheel becoming airborne under high deceleration, the rider did not require significant experience or special skill in order to achieve a high level of performance. In the ABS-disabled mode, the stopping distances were less consistent because the rider while modulating the brake force, had to deal with many additional variables at the same time. Up to six runs were allowed for the rider to become familiar with the motorcycle’s behavior and to obtain the best stopping distance. Test results from non-ABS motorcycles were noticeably more sensitive to rider performance variability. The data in Table 2 include the best stopping distances obtained without ABS, compared to the average braking performance obtained with ABS. The average results were favored for presenting the performance with ABS because the best results could be more representative of threshold braking, whereby the ABS operated for only a portion of the entire test. Despite being compared to the best stopping distances without ABS, the average results with ABS provided an overall reduction in stopping distance of 5%. The stopping distance reduction was more significant when the motorcycle was loaded (averaging 7%). The greatest stopping distance reduction (averaging 17%) was observed when only the rear foot pedal was applied to stop the motorcycle from 128 km/h

Toyota’s VSC (Vehicle Stability Control) determines that when the vehicle exhibits a loss of traction and a tendency to understeer/over- steer, it decreases the engine output and applies the appropriate braking strategy. This is done by intelligent application of the individual brakes, controlled via the anti-lock braking system. For instance, if the system detects excessive front end push in a turn, the inside rear brake might be applied in a controlled manner to aid in vehicle turn-in. The skid control ECU is a single unit with the ABS and traction actu- ator. The yaw rate sensor and decel- eration sensor are combined as a sin- gle unit. This detects yaw (lateral force) and deceleration (nose-to-tail pitch). The ABS helps to prevent wheel lockup when the brakes are applied firmly or when braking on a
slippery surface.
