I am baffled at why the experts are baffled. ABS was never made mandatory on cars. Why would they do it on motorcycles? Sounds to me like they are being consistent. Nobody should be surprised. Seems to me that the reporter was trying to create some shock value with the title to his article.
It also baffles me that motorcyclists overwhelmingly want the government to stay out of their lives, yet when it is something they want, all of a sudden they want it forced on everyone.
I'm not sure what proponents think they will gain. If ABS became mandatory, Honda would just do what they did in Europe when ABS became mandatory. They just dropped the bottom two levels, and now force everyone to get a higher priced Navi bike. Voila'. Problem solved for them.
