Triumph Scrambler 2016

Has anyone heard if ABS will be an option on the Scram in 2016? Am wanting to buy a new Scram but if ABS will be available in 2016 will try and pick up a used one to hold me over. Just don't want to buy a 15 then take a big hit getting rid of it in 16 for one with ABS.

Have considered the Ducati but just can't get myself to love it like I do the Scram. Like the classic look which is keeping me from buying a Tiger, BMW or another adv bike with ABS.

If Triumph isn't going to make it available then I will go with the Ducati and learn to love it I guess.

Thanks...

European legislation requires ABS on all motorcycles above 125cc, starting in 2016. I would doubt Triumph would stop selling the Bonneville in Europe. I also hear adding ABS to the Bonneville is not a straightforward process.

Therefore, you could speculate:
European market is likely to have a 2016 Bonneville with ABS. It may be different than the current Bonneville model.

Triumph may chose to not sell the ABS bike in the US market that soon.

The Scrambler, does it sell well in Europe? If not, Triumph may not necessarily be interested in making an ABS version of it yet.

There are spy photos floating around of a new Triumph twin engine that is water cooled or at least partially water cooled (it still has the finned cylinders but has a radiator between the front downtubes). Rumours suggest a larger capacity 900-1000cc with more power. The bikes appear to be equipped with ABS and one model even has upside down forks.
I guess it's possible that the whole Bonneville range could be updated in 2016 to include the new engine for emissions reasons plus the likes of ABS. I can't see Triumph running another engine range in between the current air cooled Bonneville range one and the water cooled twin of the Thunderbird series.
Now Ducati have stolen a huge part of Triumphs Scrambler image Triumph are going to have to respond with something and this time a new paint job and some badges isn't going to do it.

My local dealer mentioned the new engine was coming right back in March.

Seems sensible to tie it in with the ABS requirements.

Interesting. I wondered if they would do a mid year launch to defend against Ducati. They have to be ready as I am sure they have been working on it. Just step up the pace and launch plans.

I don't think that an around 1100ccm-Scrambler is the answer to the Ducati Scrambler.

A bigger Bonnie is important for Triumph to get along with the BMW Nine-T sort of.

This Triumph Scrambler custom is a little unusual in that it was actually built by the engineers at Triumph as a study into what the Scrambler could evolve into over the coming years. This build is far from being just a slap of paint and a new muffler, every element of the original Scrambler was reworked and many production line components didn’t end up on the finished bike.
