MSC prevents the wheels from slipping when braking while leaning over.
MSC minimises righting motion of braking while leaning over.
MSC prevents rolling over in emergency stops.
MSC prevents rear wheel skids when accelerating while leaning over.
MSC prevents the front wheel rising while accelerating.

Thanks to the MSC system, from now on, the KTM 1190 it is not only the most versatile of all adventure bikes, but now the safest motorcycle in the world.
