If they had cruise and abs on that bike that probably would not be discounting them they would be selling them. Harley, Victory, Bmw, Ducati, the weestrom and many more have abs and harley, victory and bmw have cruise. What the heck was honda thinking. I can and probably will pick up a 2013 yamaha fjr, which has cruise, abs, traction control etc and will pay around 14k. easy decision.
They have that market covered with the standard Goldwing. The purpose of the F6b, is for those that want the stripped down version. The reason that the sales are slow, is that people that want a stripped down bagger, go for the HD Streetglide and those like yourself, that want more stuff, buy the bigger brother. It's not a bike for everyone and it fills an odd niche, but what bike is for everyone!
