same standards that the GROM is held to... it doesn't make much sense if you ask me... unless they're going to do Ninja 125Apparently it does not meet European standards. This what was I got from poorly translated french moto sites.
Not quite sure which standards those are.
Adding ABS could cut into the profit margin too much though. Enough that they can't balance it out with price increases due to reduced sales or whatever...^ That could be it. Odd that they wouldn't come out with a more expensive model with ABS for Europe. Is it not big enough of a market?
where do you see Grom available with ABS?The 2013 Grom 125 ABS and standard model had around a 1k price difference. That could be enough for someone to get a bike with a high cc.
Can you link us to where you saw that, I don't recall the Grom coming with ABS and searches haven't turned up anything indicating it did come with ABS for 2014.Weird. I read on a Grom forum that people had the choice between a Grom with ABS and one without. They could be wrong.
2014 Honda Grom 125 First Ride - Motorcycle USABoth brakes aren’t sensitive when touched yet still deliver adequate stopping performance when needed. Although it’s missing ABS, considering the pricetag and how effective the sum of its manual braking components are, we’d never miss it.
