How about linked brakes?
Many , , , and even are equipped with linked brakes, which are designed to actuate both front and rear brakes through a single lever. Some systems are only rear-to-front linked, while others work both ways, but the goal is the same both: remove some of the guesswork involved with choosing between front and rear brakes. While a majority of riders can’t produce stopping distances as short as those created by linked braking systems, this feature isn’t always popular among some performance-oriented enthusiasts.
Most modern motor vehicles have two sets of brakes, front brakes and rear brakes. Even two wheeled vehicles such as and have rear brakes and these have a very specific purpose which we explain as follows.
Should I use the front, rear brake… or both?
Balance is crucial to a motorcycle’s dynamics, and that’s why most bikes have individual front and rear brake controls. Most experts agree that roughly 70% of braking effort should go to the front wheel (which uses the hand lever on the right grip), and 30% to the rear (which is operated by the right foot pedal.) Front brakes require more effort because weight transfer from slowing down will shift the bike’s balance from the rear wheel to the front, enabling the front tire to handle more load. When there’s less downforce on the rear tire, it becomes much easier to lockup and slide that wheel, resulting in a loss of control...
Disc brakes are commonplace on the front wheels of modern vehicles, and can also be found on the rear wheels of many other vehicles. The design of the front and rear disc brakes might differ, but in operation, they are virtually the same. The exception with rear disc brakes is that many times the parking brake is part of the rear caliper assembly. We'll get into that more in the section on rear disc brakes. For now, let’s talk about some of the common problems with disc brakes.
Development of CBS: Front and rear wheel interlocked brake
Honda paid attention to the operation of brakes unique to motorcycles; front and rear wheel independent brakes applied through levers and pedals in accordance with ever changing driving conditions from moment to moment. However, proper braking of front and rear wheels is required to stop efficiently in a shorter distance according to various road surfaces. Honda aimed at enabling ideal and easy operation of front and rear wheel brakes, which could be applied at anytime and by anybody. That is the purpose of CBS (combined brake system); front and rear wheel interlocked brake system.
