US probably won't get ABS until 2nd gen which probably be in 2016. While UK will get ABS as it is require so it's fitted standard. What is stupid is why didn't they just included an option with US bike I mean rather than making two different models.... I guess Yamaha is crazy like that just like the FZ07 just finally coming to USA when it's been over in UK for years.
europe will get ABS becasuse its law. All motorcycles are pretty much built to euro standards because they are the most stringent, US market R3 WILL get ABS eventually. if they said it would RIGHT Now before the bikes are out how many sales would they miss out on???
