Motorcycle Traction Control Shootout Preview
Monday, August 6, 2012
Traction Control. It’s the hottest phrase in the sportbike and road racing genres right now. But what is it? And does it actually equate to faster lap times around the racetrack? In supplement of our 2012 Superbike Smackdown IX Track
shootout, we compared the six traction control-equipped Superbikes (Aprilia RSV4 Factory APRC, BMW S1000RR, Ducati 1199, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R, MV Agusta F4R and Yamaha YZF-R1), in effort to learn which system performs best—allowing the rider to put in faster, more consistent laps with a higher margin of safety. Make sure to check out Motorcycle-USA.com on Monday, August 27 for the detailed results.
