Default Yamaha FZ-09 ABS Model: Why it's only a matter of time untill it becomes available...

I strongly believe it's only a matter of time till the ABS FZ-09 becomes available because at the moment they are available to order in Germany as the "Yamaha MT-09 ABS" which is the only MT-09 model they list, no non-ABS MT-09 selection.

Since the bike is being released at the end of the year in October. Way after, prime riding season. I think its best to wait until next year. Hopefully by then, Yamaha will get it's head out of its ass and offer ABS in North America.

Well there has been lots of talk of ABS becoming mandatory so I think it is a matter of time. But in the meantime if you want a FZ-09 - non ABS is the only flavor.

in europe.....by 2016 ABS will be mandatory for all motorcycles so it's probably yamaha's way to feed that demand, mighht also be why they get an abs model so soon and we sont

I have been riding for a bit while and I can see how ABS works effectively. It would be unusual for Yamaha not to release a ABS model. Just looking at time guys.

Well even if it is offered and cost maybe... lets say $10.5 K would you guys still be interested? or will you just stick with the non ABS fz09?

$10,500 is not a lot considering it is offered with ABS but the only thing I would like to see is it coming with different modes and a quick shifter.

I was the poster on SVrider.com who called Yamaha and was told to write a letter.
Just last night, while riding my V-Strom 650, I came up on a right turn onto a different road before I was expecting it and locked up my rear brake trying to slow down enough for the turn. Fortunately, I maintained control of the bike and didn't highside, but I felt it was just another example of why I like ABS. Some folks feel ABS lengthens stopping distances and think they can stop more safely w/o it. My response is as follows - True, an expert rider CAN stop in a shorter distance w/o ABS, under ideal conditions. If I, or most ordinary riders, should rear-end someone because the ABS "took too long to stop," then I probably would have rear-ended them if I didn't have ABS.
Yamaha had to design for ABS for the EU, so why not at least offer it as an option here? I couldn't even locate an ABS-equipped V-Strom and had to drive across several States to get my ABS-equipped SV, so even on relatively low-priced bikes, ABS sells.
If it had ABS, I would already be at the dealer wanting to make a deposit.

$2500 for abs sounds pretty steep. Maybe a thousand extra tops.

good insight BKL. Thanks for the information.
I agree ABS is better to have but I am fine with not having it for now.

I've ridden without ABS on many motorcycles in the past.

Would I have liked ABS? Sure why not? But without it, you just have to learn to adapt your riding techniques/braking to adapt.
