    Hey,
    New rider on a block with a question.
    Is it possible to replace standard BOSH ABS with BOSH Cornering ABS on vitpilen 701? It looks like they added to supermoto 701 a better ABS version.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    No, not really unless you are super handy and willing to spend hundreds (thousands?) of dollars. Not saying it’s impossible, but yeah, it requires a lot of specialist knowledge and money.

    Btw, why would you want cornering ABS in the first place? It only adds so much extra safety, you can’t beat physics….

    I believe duke 690R (>2016) got cornering abs. Vitpilen has the same Bosch IMU but has no gyro sensor.

    The 701 got one last year..

    I don’t understand why KTM/Husqvarna don’t put it in every bike with the right IMU?!

    it should be a Bosch 9M+ Two Channel according to media

    Bosch says its anĀ  “Motorcycle ABS enhanced” check here

    ABS unit in our Pilen looks exactly like this
