Default Yamaha ABS

Anyone have any murmurs on the ABS system that the MT-09 will end up getting?

Or does anyone have ABS on their current Yamaha bike?
If so, what is it like?
i.e. does it have different levels, or is it possible to turn it off?

I had ABS on my 2013 Gladius. I put on 5700km this year and never once had the ABS kick in. Came close a couple of times but never had to hit the brakes that hard. This just had the front and rear wheel sensors and the ABS unit was tucked under the frame. There is no on/off switch for ABS brakes. On this bike you could disable by removing 2 fuses under the seat. I am sure that the Suzuki system and Yamaha and Honda ABS systems are similar as they all use the small slotted disc on the wheel to measure speed.

Where about do you usually commute and how busy is it?
I guess depending on how you ride and where you ride you could either be using the ABS a lot or very little.

No matter where you are commuting if you are using the ABS a lot, then you are using your brakes wrong and you need to relearn how to use them properly before you get hurt or hurt someone else.

ABS on a motorcycle is a lot different than ABS on a car.

In regular riding you should not be engaging the ABS. Unless you are going off-roading. lol

Don't use the bike to commute much, I'm a recreational rider. My rides can take me thru the city with lots of stop and go traffic or to wind out on country roads. This year has been pretty good with near misses. Didn't have one where I had to jam the brakes on. From my experience with ABS, you really have to brake hard for them to engage.

I just don't trust ABS on two wheels.

In what situation do you EVER need to jam on the brakes?

Jamming on the brakes should NEVER happen.

Brakes should be applied in a smooth progressive squeeze always.

Even emergency stopping, then brakes should be applied in a smooth, progressive squeeze with increasing pressure reaching maximum at the time the wheels stop.

Correct ABS is a safety feature so that you can hit the limits of your abruptness safely and also be able to brake hard and not lock when unexpected things like sand show up. It's not a replacement or performance improvement for proper braking it is simply a backup for locking the tire.

Unless you intentionally want to lock up the brakes to slide the rear.
