AFAIK these include the 2014 BMW GS, the new Triumph range, the Yamaha Super Tenere (the first to have it) and I think it is now incorporated in the KTM 1190.
My 2013 Multistrada also has the Bosch 9 ABS unit (with three selectable levels of operation, including an option better suited for riding off pavement). And an improved 8-level traction control, much more subtle.
