Will New Motorcycle Be Required To Have Anti-Lock Brakes?

Can anti-lock brakes save the lives of more motorcycle riders?

According to the Washington Post, an insurance industry group is asking the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to make anti-lock brakes on motorcycles a federal mandate.

The story reports that The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety says insurance companies accident reports back up the claim that new motorbikes with anti-lock brakes would save lives.

While the new mandate would make bikes safer, they would push the price of a motorcycle up by 1000 dollars.

  1. I have had motorcycles for a long, long period of time. I do not see conclusive evidence, apart from the fact that anti-lock brakes work better, but to say it saves lives is simply incorrect. Motor cycle accidents happen for a lot of reasons including motorcycle driver fault but more so through the fault of others or bad weather or road conditions. Losing control of the motorcycle does not necessarily have to do with brakes whether they they are discs or drums.
