Explanation: Integrated Braking System

In order to pass your motorcycle permit exams and to become a safe rider, it’s important to know why a particular answer on the motorcycle written test is correct. 

An integrated braking system is a type of linked braking system that applies partial front brake pressure when the rear brake is activated. 

These types of braking systems force the use of both the front and the rear brake at the same time for maximum stopping power. 

Refer to your motorcycle’s owner manual for information about the specific braking system on your motorcycle and how to use it. 

Regardless of what type of braking system you have, it is a good idea to apply pressure to both the front and the rear brake at the same time. 

You can find more information about this topic in the motorcycle rider’s handbook.
