What don’t some people get about ABS?
The thing is the N.American market not only misses out on a bunch of great bikes, but some that we do get are available with ABS elsewhere.
The importers don’t bring them in because they don’t sell. But I think this is a “chicken & egg” type situation.
They don’t promote the value of this device – in fact my own experience is that our local dealers seem to discourage it, saying, “what do you want that for? ”, “you don’t need it” or similar. These are responses I've had in the last couple of weeks.
I’m looking to get an ABS bike for next season, but the choices are limited. Our importers should encourage their dealers to promote the concept. After all, in pure money terms alone it’s a value added item for their sale, and we’d have a lot more choices in the future.
