Yes, you can brake in a turn... The IMU works with the ABS to provide you with TC during a turn (or when the bike is not perpendicular to the ground). Still does not mean that it can prevent a spill. It can give you better control if your tires lose traction while turning up to a point. If you push it further, you are on your own...So, my 2019 N1K has ABS, an IMU, and traction control. Around town I leave the traction control on #2.
With theses features, does this mean I can brake while in a turn?
+1.Trail braking is an advanced riding technique that has to be learned regardless of TC/ABS. Those are band-aids that will not prevent you from going down if you do something stupid, hehe.
Thank you for caring. (how was that?)He wants to know what your experience level is because hes trying to prevent you from crashing and killing yourself. That's all. The correct response is, " Thank you for caring".
You need to learn all of these techniques. Its rarely about being fast on the street. This is all stuff you need to know for an emergency situation.
Pretty much. Straight up/straight line we have a 100% (100 points) of brakes (whether that be front, rear and/or both) for the traction conditions (dry, wet, snow, ice, slick, etc.). As soon as we lean, we are going to loose some of the traction because of the lean angle. So it's a trade off, the more lean the less brakes. Nick Ienatsch explains it best(here is the short version), each tire has 100% traction straight up to use for braking. It also has 100% traction for lean angle (without braking). When the bike is straight up it's 100% brake and 0% lean. As we start to lean there is a trade-off, we cannot continue to use a 100% of brakes as we lean because some of those 100 points of traction are being used for lean angle traction (turning/cornering). The father we lean, the more points we need for lean angle turning traction and the less we can use for braking to assure we don't exceed that 100 points total. There are several video online where Nick explains the principle, technique and skill if anyone is interested.Ya, in MSF training they do not permit you to brake, while moving in a corner or twistie, unless you first right your bike and begin heading in a straight line. But some corners I've been in are tight and narrow, and there's no room to first straighten up the bike. So it sounds like from the above responses that there is the option to brake while moving through a turn, but keeping in mind that the more lean angle you have, the less braking ability you have, and probably a greater chance of dumping the bike.
