New KTM 1190 is with stability control system
The 2014 KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R touring bikes have debuted with the new Motorcycle Stability Control (MSC) system from Bosch, becoming the world's first bikes to feature this rider assistance system. MSC is an advanced electronic rider assistance system that combines the bike's ‘Combined Anti-locking Braking System (C-ABS) and Motorcycle Traction Control (MTC) into one comprehensive safety feature. MSC is so effective that for the first time ABS functions even while cornering. MSC works by constantly measuring and processing the bike's lean and pitch angle, wheel rotation speed, braking pressure and acceleration. MSC was jointly developed by KTM and Bosch. As such, expect it to makes it's appearance in other high-end KTM motorcycles, including the upcoming KTM 1290 Super Duke R. By combining ABS and MTC, MSC improves safety on multiple levels, in various instances as listed below. You can watch Bosch video in the gallery, explaining how MSC works. The fact that Bosch MSC system can be retrofitted to existing KTM 1190 Adventure and Adventure R models is certainly going make a lot of people happy.
