Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / How to ride the motorcycle / Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS, For models equipped with KIBS)

KIBS regulates anti-lock braking performance with more precision during sports riding compared to a conventional ABS system.

KIBS is designed to help prevent the wheels from locking up when the brakes are applied hard while riding straight. KIBS automatically regulates brake force using engine data in addition to front and rear wheel speed to help prevent wheel lock-up and allows more stable steering control while stopping.

KIBS helps provide stability while stopping by preventing wheel lock-up, but you should be aware of the following:

WARNING

KIBS cannot protect the rider from all possible hazards and is not a substitute for safe riding practices. Be aware of how the KIBS system operates and its limitations. It is the rider’s responsibility to ride at appropriate speeds and manner for weather, road surface and traffic conditions.

WARNING

Use of non-recommended tires can cause the KIBS to malfunction and lead to extended braking distance, resulting in a crash causing serious injury or death.

Always use the recommended standard tires for this motorcycle.
