2. NEW Cornering ABS with off-road setting distributes the maximum brake force to each wheel based on the riding situation, ensuring the best braking performance under cornering conditions. The off-Road setting also joins the default riding modes of Urban, Tour and Gravel plus two customizable user settings to cover most riding conditions.
