Europe Set to Require Mandatory ABS for Motorcycles

According to different sources, and at least one supplier, legislation establishing mandatory anti-lock brakes on motorcycles may soon be sanctioned by the European Parliament before the summer recess at the end of this month.

The imminent decision follows a long consultation process with industry bodies, manufacturers and trade associations.

It’s expected that the law will insist that all new 125cc+ motorcycles manufactured after 2017 will have to be fitted with OE ABS braking systems in a bid to increase rider safety.

This move would likely result in ABS on all motorcycles imported for the American market  since the manufacturers are not likely to remove ABS on bikes imported into this country.
