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.
