This is how they will work: The hand lever works the front brake directly without any assistance or gimmicks. Same for the pedal working the rear brake. There is no hydraulic connection between front and rear. For integration the front brake activates a servo pump that puts pressure into the rear brake circuit. If anything in the servo system or ABS system fails you are without integration and ABS but with full power 100% independent activation of front and rear brakes. Traction control, if installed, will work by reducing ignition advance first and cutting fuel injection next, if needed. It can be switched off.

Now we're talking... that sounds like a much more practical and reliable implementation than the current design.
