I wouldn't mind ABS but otherwise I'm glad it has no other aids. It's lighter than the 1k which is why I went for it. Seems like the perfect bike in my mind and plenty more power than I'll be able to use :)
I feel the same. I believe the rider aids on modern sportbikes don't provide much incentive for people to hone their skills. Traction control and anti-wheelie has reduced the need for proper throttle control and ABS makes people think it'll save them no matter what. Of course, electronic rider aids have their place and they would be more useful once a rider is more competent so as not to rely on them.

They're crazy powerful though. Would they even be rideable without the aids? Remember when marquez hit pedrosas bike & severed the rear wheel sensor and Danny's bike spat him off because it gave him full power?

Oh shit, I'm running out of things to fuck around with on this. Might have to actually ride it and tune it soon...
