Are the Honda CBR250R's brakes
Integrated or Linked?

The following definitions are
provided on page 37 of the
Motorcycle Safety Foundation's
(MSF) Basic Rider Course Handbook
(version 7.1):

Integrated Brakes: application of
the rear brake will cause some
application of the front brake.

Linked Brakes: application of
either the front or rear brake
will cause some pressure to be
applied to the other brake.

The CBR250 R has an integrated brake system - applying rear brakes will activate one set of pistons on the front brake.

Jpit,

Thank you for the response. I couldn't find anything in the brochure or on the Honda website, which explicitly stated whether the brakes were integrated or linked.

what about when applying the front brakes, will the rear brakes assist the front brakes?
I have a strong belief it's like that but need someone who knows to confirm that. It just makes sense to me that it will work the other way around.

Hondapwr! When you apply the front brake only: You will have abs available for front wheel only...not linked the rear brake at all.

Check this thread out:

http://www.cbr250.net/forum/honda-cbr250-general-discussion/11-abs-honda-cbr250r.html

There is a diagram of the C-ABS in the third post down.
ohh nicee! thanks :)

i love diagrams, having visuals always helps.

In that same thread i see that the CBR250R ABS system helps but doesn't make a huge difference. I have to try the ABS braking system on the CBR250R one day. Trusting the ABS alone might not be good enough, good judgement calls also play a major roll!

Well, if you are only using the front brake, no chance of the back locking, but to be clear, ABS is active full time, and independent on both wheels. It is a dual-channel system. Not saying your wrong..
