I can only think that they did not import the ZX14 ABS as it would be seen as 'overlap' with the Concours 14. But other markets, like Europe, have both - so I guess I still don't understand!

I have an 07 ADV and an 08 SD. ADV definitely is tuned for more low end but still has plenty of top end. It also has always felt smoother to me (at least below 5,000 rpm), despite the knobbly tyres.
