As long as people buy them why would they. It's not like production race series are important to sales.

Honda was the first manufacturer to offer ABS on a supersport and superbike (2009). Before that they added an electronic steering damper.

You're welcome

But do they off the other bits like tc? As it stands, I'm leaning towards the 2015 s1000rr over the CBR :0

CBRs have no TC as of yet. You have to rely on your brain and hands

Marquez brakes with one finger on the lever, besides that MotoGP bikes and superbikes via dealerships are pretty much equal

Except that honda doesn't even use the same engine configurations.

Back to the topic, I find it kind of funny that crutchlow is getting out of his 2 year contract with Ducati and taking Bradls spot on lcr honda. Then Bradl is moving over to ngm forward and Aleix is talking with Suzuki. Big shuffle in the lower ranks but the big four will remain the same.

Even with the super amazingly maintained roads we have here in Houston, which never have oil patches, dirt, or anything else on them, I still think I'd like TC on a 160+HP bike

Meh, Honda's had V-4s on their sport bikes before. Everyone always wants what they don't have.

I've ridden an RSV4 with TC set to max - you practically have training wheels on at that point xD

I'm not saying it's not good to have, but if you're in a turn at speed and hit oil or gravel it's not going to save you.

I had two CBRs with ABS. It's a great system

You get the same results by using your head and staying off the throttle. If you can't control yourself or the throttle, then by all means get a bike with all the electronics you can find
