Harley-Davidson has designed its first anti-lock braking system (ABS) for use on three 2005 police motorcycle models.
Offered on the FLHTPI Electra Glide and FLHPI Road King police models, and on the California FLHPEI Escort model, the system retains traditional independent front and rear wheel braking control yet supplies maximum braking effect without wheel lock-up in all-weather emergency situations, especially on slick roads.
Harley-Davidson does not plan to offer ABS on other police bikes or motorcycles available to the general public, but company officials say they will continue to monitor customer interest in the system.
