Summary A pilot experimental investigation was made of the effect of motorcycle brake control gains on rider subjective opinion and objective performance in emergenc stopping manoeuvres. A variable braking control gradien (VBCG) motorcycle was developed for the experiment, whic allowed independent variation of the force and displacement control gains of the front and rear wheel brakes. Development of the VBCG system was preceeded by a comprehensive investigation of the braking performance characteristics of three production motorcycles. Braking systems. Vehicle dynamics. Modelling.
