Kawasaki Ninja Service Manual / General Information / Technical Information-Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS/ZX1000K model only) / Overview

Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS) offers enhanced braking stability (ABS performance equivalent to the current model) to supersportmodels, which pitch more than most motorcycles and also offers high-precision front and rear brake pressure control (high-precision ABS) for sport riding.

Precise control of the ABS operation decreases kickback to the brake lever and brake pedal during braking compared to the conventional system.

In addition to the front and rear wheel sensors in a conventional ABS, KIBS monitors a number of parameters: front caliper hydraulic pressure and information from the FI ECU (engine speed, throttle position, gear position, and clutch actuation).

KIBS uses an all-new BOSCH hydraulic unit which was designed specifically for motorcycle use.

The new design is small and light weight (45% less volume and 800g lighter than current units). The unit is located close to the motorcycle’s center of gravity, behind the engine cylinder and above the sprocket cover.
