What is Combi-Braking System (CBS)?
Applying both the front and the rear brakes simultaneously increases the braking efficiency is a well-known fact. But only a handful of riders practice it and only a few manage to master it. Combi-Braking System or CBS is a technology that allows you to control both the brakes with a single lever(The rear brake lever). Along with the equalizer, it proportionately distributes the brake force between the front and the rear wheels. This action results in increased braking efficiency and reduced stopping distance. CBS also increases vehicle stability(by preventing wheel locking to an extent).
