    I concede the point. I was confusing the NC700x linked brakes, where one piston on the front wheel calliper is linked to the rear brake, with combined ABS.

    Velcro strap around the lever or a wedge in the pivot point. The 50cc Honda scooter (Fit in Canada, Metropolitan in the States) had a locking rear brake lever- but it is a cable, not hydraulic system
