What is ABS in a bike?

We have heard about ABS in cars, but nowadays, to ensure safety, bikes also come with the ABS brake system. ABS in bikes keeps the wheels from locking up when brakes are applied. When the roads are wet or slippery in the rainy season, ABS prevents your bike from slipping, and in this way, it decreases the risk of accidents.
