On this issue Marc Marquez commented that:
On a motorcycle, ABS can save lives and in the best of cases you pound a good scare. I have no doubt that all bikes that go by road should equip this technology to please our security.
And going a step further, Dani Pedrosa commented:
Circulating by road, there are many potential hazards and contingencies to which we are exposed. My advice to motorists is to invest in training to improve their skills to the handlebar for safer driving.
Albert Cavero, Head of road safety for Honda in Spain
We have a very aged fleet in which the vast majority of 3,000,000 of motorcycles that circulate in Spain lack basic security systems such as own-ABS or combined systems of braking.
Taking into account the high efficiency of these devices for the reduction of accidents, is required for the application of measures and incentives aimed at the renewal of the Park in order to change the current trend and having motorcycles safer.
