The RDRS features come standard on all 2020 Harley CVO models, the 2020 LiveWire electric motorcycle, plus both of the super-stable trikes, the 2020 Tri-Glide Ultra and 2020 Freewheeler. Equally important is the introduction of Vehicle Hold Control (VHC), which applies just enough brake to stop you from rolling backward. The police bikes are also going to get great value out of this.
RDRS makes small changes to the way the bike behaves when accelerating or slowing down. However, probably the most important aspect is found when riding in the rain.
The Cornering-Enhanced Anti-Lock Braking System will automatically deliver the maximum amount of braking with available traction, while the Cornering-Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking automatically adjusts the amount of brake pressure individually on the front and rear wheels.
Harley even thinks of those dangerous bad down-shifts with the Drag-Torque Slip-Control System that ensures the rear wheel doesn’t spin… unless you want to. When DSCS detects excessive rear wheel slip under deceleration it will adjust engine torque delivery to better match rear-wheel speed.
There’s also a nice Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) on these 2020 bikes. It automatically alerts the driver of low tire pressure. However, you can also go into the Boom! Box GTS screen and get a live reading. Maybe you want those bad boys to lay down some smoke and need to check how low you can go.
