If EVERY bike had ABS, it would bring down the cost! You can't buy a new bike in Europe without it. BMW puts it on ALL their bikes. High time the nit-wits at Honda figured it out as well. Non-ABS bikes will take a real shit kicking on resale. It's time we got with the programme here in NA! Do you people LIKE road rash?

I'm pretty sure it's a law in Europe. So far, we aren't being forced to buy them.

Seriously, the only thing they haven't outlawed yet in Europe is the right to complain. Yet.

Anyhoooo....you know, this is a GREAT looking bike.....I was really hoping Honda was going to bring out a more sport touring version of the VFR200 though.

How about a VFR1200 Engine in the new CBR frame?! Woohoo! .

You're correct. Still, after riding since 1968, my next bike will have it. So should yours. Cheers

Years later

I would be putting down a depost today, if my 1983 CB 1100F was not still running like a top after 30 years. Some folks are bitching about the price. If the bike is still as good as mine years later it's worth every penny, and then some.

one question, WHY would Honda in 2013 even OFFER a non-ABS version? Just put an "off" switch on it for those allergic to change.
Lyle
Because real men don't need ABS
That way if you have to have it..write the ck
By the way..Way to go Big Red!!..I just hope people buy it..

I'll be eagerly awaiting buying one on clearance after it sits on a dealer floor for a year or two.

I am willing to wager they will be sold out. All i see around town are standards, old, new, Triumphs, Ducatis. I think Honda may have timed it right. I hope so.

Have to wonder how much more it'll be here than in the States. If it's less than 11K, I'll order one. If it's 9999 Stateside, you can bet Honda Canada will want close to 14K for it.

You know, $9,999 ain't a bad price for that bike. I think it's going to sell really well.
