That is a possiblity I can see happening. It makes sense to throw in more option in hopes of grabbing more money.. well for harley.They could make abs an option, just like they do on many models. I don't see why they couldn't do that now. I'd pay the extra $800 or whatever it is, for something that could save my life. Targeting a bike for younger/newer riders seems like abs would be an option even before the dinosaur bikes get it.
Before the boom in more compact fuel efficient cars and bikes I wouldn't have thought this would happen, but if you asked me last year I wouldn't be surprised at all, it just seems like a natural thing to do.Piaggio, Bergman, Suzuki and Honda all make scooters with ABS, several with less than 500cc power. Maybe a 500cc is not so far fetched. Who'd have believed HD would make a sub-900cc liquid cooled bike 2 years ago?
