Just out of curiosity why not just buy a non ABS bike? Did they stop making them without it? Seems a little pointless to buy the ABS model and pay more just to rip it out?
For track riding I'd for sure want NON ABS, but for street riding, I definitely want it. I guess that's just my opinion though. Maybe on the Gen 5 we can get a threshold selector for normal, rain, track, off.
