The heart of the ABS system installed upon the MV Agusta F4 supersport model is the compact and lightweight Bosch 9MPlus control unit. The unit contains pressure sensors that interface with the two phonic wheels, one per wheel. The main objective is naturally to reduce the braking distance upon wet, damp or otherwise low-traction surfaces. In addition to preventing the dangerous locking of the wheels, thanks to the control unit’s sophisticated algorithms, the MV Agusta ABS system also prevents the relative deceleration from causing the rear wheel to lose contact with the asphalt, thus impeding the motorcycle from tipping forward. This situation – which is not uncommon on sports motorcycles equipped with extremely powerful braking systems – is prevented by the Bosch 9MPlus control unit, which implements the appropriate countermeasures whenever the rear wheel loses contact with the asphalt.
