Braking is supplied by dual discs with twin-pot calipers up front and a single disc with dual-piston caliper in the rear. As the model name suggests, assistance is provided by a new-generation Bosch ABS. And, once stopped, a hand-pull parking brake locks the entire package into place.
The Xciting 500 Ri ABS is available in gray or gold, both with red performance-accented rear suspension spring and brake calipers.
