    manual ABS?

    Hi, I was reading in another forum about a Manual shift ABS version of the NC700 that was being sold in Canada and else where but not in the States.
    Can some one tell me if such a critter actually exists?
    Or does ABS only come with the DCT version?
    Thanks,

    All versions sold in Europe come with ABS as standard if I got the story straight, whether manual or DCT. In the US it seems that Honda USA decided to bundle ABS with DCT only.

    I'd rather they just got rid of non-ABS versions and sold Manual and DCT with ABS.

    I wonder if it would be possible to buy the abs parts and install them on the manual/nonAbs version. I suppose it's just a matter of costs and what you would be taking off and throwing away.
    ...and bike's more fun too!

    I guess your right. Every version in Denmark has ABS

    I'm sure there is some logical reason why they are not selling manual/Abs versions in the States like some obscure law passed by Congress to protect Harley Davidson.
    I'd really like to know the reason why though.
