Non-Cruisers With ABS and Cruise Control

What are the options here? I will not consider a motorcycle without both. Seems most of the bikes with both are big, heavy, large displacement expensive bikes. Cruisers at that.

Most 1000cc+ BMW do have both (including the S1000RR), the Tiger Explorer 1200, FJR 1300 (I believe - maybe it was an option). Other than that, you're out of luck.

There seem to be aftermarket parts for the e-throttle Ducatis (new Multistrada).

Tiger

New Triumph Tiger 800 will be added to this list next year.

Also, if you prefer something more sporty, the BMW S1000R naked bike.

And the 2015 MultiStrada will have it as standard.

3 Great choices right there!!!

not many choices are available now, with both cc and ABS. But just wait a bit. As Vellies said, both should be available on the 2015 Tiger, and I believe both will be available on the 2015 Versys 1000 as well. In another year or two there will probably be many more choices.

In the meantime, there are lots of good, inexpensive throttle locks available that work very well. In some cases, they work BETTER than an electronic CC. I need to be able to let go of the throttle and get some feeling back in my hand even if it's only a brief moment, like on a twisty road with a short straight. I can lock down a Vista Cruise almost instantly, faster than I can set CC. It turns off faster too.

Leftover 2014 FJR1300 are selling at about $12,500 including cruise, ABS, switchable traction control, and enough power to outperform everything but the fastest sport bikes. Probably the most bang for the buck you can find. It's a worthy touring machine, but pull off the bags and you can still be put in jail in second gear.

Then you're going to find very few bikes.

You might want to reconsider such a hard and firm line.

On a quarter mile drag strip you either hit the rev limiter or shift into third right about the finish line! I wouldn't mind having a new one. With a Cee Bailey 4+2, a Russell Day Long, bar risers and a top case, it's ready for loaded touring.

I won't reconsider. I have a right shoulder that needs to be surgically replaced. Until it is replaced cruise control will be a necessity. After it's replaced cruise will be a nicety. I have toured with and without. I won't tour without again. I have tried various mechanical throttle locks and they aren't great. I want ABS too.

Maybe I was doing something wrong. The four runs I did all worked out about the same way. It's been a while and I am old, but I don't think I am mistaken.

Are you selling the Victory..?

Do you wish you'd bought a Road King like mine with the ABS and Cruise..?

I sold it thinking I was going to be having my shoulder replaced this winter. The doctor thinks we can buy a few more years with the injections. Now I have seller's remorse. I liked that Victory quite a bit.
