if I were on the market to replace my 07 Tuono, this bike with ABS would be a top choice. I will not buy any other bike without ABS...

It does, ABS is standard on the GSX1250FA. Under the features section of the Suzuki website.

"The GSX1250FA is equipped with a Digital Antilock Brake System (ABS)*"

In most other categories it appears that the Ninja 1000 is a higher spec bike in addition to being cheaper and 65 lbs lighter.

from the pics, the slope of the seat looks similar to the Z750 i had. it didn't work for me very well even with a corbin. YMMV.

it wouldn't break my heart if my bandit was 65 lbs lighter. but i'm sure my bandit is saying the same thing about my fatass...

friggin dumbass dealers don't even know what bikes are being sold by their company. I mean depending on how many lines they sell, there are only like a handfull of new models each year. You seriously can't be bothered to figure that out? What a loser

I would think Burts should have them in stock. Del Amo says they're getting them next week.

No, with the way sales have been going dealers want to move what they have, not what they have to order. I can't believe how many 1,2,3-year old brand new bikes I see for sale. But, the places I see them don't seem interested in blowing them out at low prices. I suspect a lot of dealers are sitting and hoping, just hoping, for a turnaround in sales before they go bankrupt.

Just curious - how could he have a new ZX10 if they won't be available until late January ? (post "factory engine fix")

ZX-10Rs were in showrooms before Kawasaki had them all returned for "the fix".

I know that, but his post of today "sounded" like this was something he just did.

ABS never

Never had a bike with ABS. I really like this Kawasaki. I know a lot of people love abs but I've just never needed it in all my years of riding. I know it would come in handy but it would prevent me from buying any bike that didn't have ABs. JMO

I would buy it regardless of ABS. Why the fuss about ABS? Are you riding that hard beyond your limits that ABS kicks off whenever you brake? Seriously, ABS wont get you out of that SUV/minivan that pulls out in front of you suddenly while on the cell phone.

I ride a 1098 with ridiculous brakes, its all about being smooth with your inputs.

Each to his/her own I guess.

I've never had a bike with ABS, can't say I've ever had a situation where I've wished I had ABS on one of my bikes either. When I next buy a bike though it will have ABS if it is available. Hopefully I'll never need it, but just maybe it'll save my bacon one day. As the saying goes; ABS only works after you've already crashed.
