Hello, I've decided I really need ( ) a new 800 Italia, but am told I can only have the ABS version at the moment... Is it a good option?
however if it is the way forward (for MV) then so be it.
I like this answer. I never use my bike for commuting but use my reliable Skoda. When driving to work or home i often find myself distracted. This never happens when driving my bike for the fun miles.I'm of the opinion that for leisure country trips the ABS would be optional as you are predominantly in control with limited necessity for emergency braking. On the other hand if using the bike as a comuter then definitely the ABS option as in traffic you never know who will do something stupid and you need to 'emergency' brake (grab a handful of stopping power without locking the front type braking).
