CBS is the most efficient way of braking, where with the press of one lever the brake force is applied on both the rear & front brake.  It reduces braking distance & improves the stability of the motorcycle. This system ensures that equal braking force is distributed to the front & rear wheel at the same time to give it the perfect balance.

CBS is done mostly by an equalizer which is fitted in the bike to give the perfect balancing force, for new riders with less experience CBS will help them to gain more confident under braking. Keeway RKS150 CBS get a 240 mm diameter 3 pistons disc brake at front while the rear wheel will have a 2 pistons 190 mm diameter disc brake.
