I am sure it will be sourced from a supplier. Bosch most likely.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

From the link in Haupti's post:

The heart of the ABS system installed upon the MV Agusta F4 supersport model is the compact and
lightweight Bosch 9MPlus control unit. The unit contains pressure sensors that interface with the two
phonic wheels, one per wheel. The main objective is naturally to reduce the braking distance upon
wet, damp or otherwise low-traction surfaces. In addition to preventing the dangerous locking of the
wheels, thanks to the control unit's sophisticated algorithms, the MV Agusta ABS system also prevents
the relative deceleration from causing the rear wheel to lose contact with the asphalt, thus impeding
the motorcycle from tipping forward. This situation - which is not uncommon on sports motorcycles
equipped with extremely powerful braking systems - is prevented by the Bosch 9MPlus control unit,
which implements the appropriate countermeasures whenever the rear wheel loses contact with the
asphalt.

>cars front brakes do about 70% of the braking
>bikes have way greater polar moment putting way more weight on the front tire
>bikes very commonly lift the rear wheel while stopping

>the concept of decreasing the pressure to a front brake doing 100% of the braking to add rear braking is asinine.....

street riding on black ice...... maybe ABS is is a good idea

me, i don't ride when its icy

the ABS on my BMW GS sucks hind tit

The new Bosch unit is a lot of 2013 bikes from Europe - Aprilias, Ducatis and then some more. It did get very good reviews in all the tests of bike that were equiped with this unit. In race mode - I read - it basically only kicks in when you have an off-track excursion :-)

In general I have to say I don't quite get MV's product policy. They announce major changes to their bikes, before they even are available on the US market. I think the 2013 F4 just started to show up at the dealers. I haven't seen any '13 Brutales and they announce the availability of ABS ...
