No mystery. Its because they know the majority of people will buy them without abs. Plus its a cheaper version, easier to compete with the Ninja 250R.
But if they have people with actualy deposists down for an ABS, why not ship them, atleast as many as there were deposits? I had a deposit down for one, then said **** it when all the non were showing up and no dealer had a clue when they were getting an ABS.

That has nothing to do with the dealers though. If I put a deposit on an ABS and Honda won't ship it to them, but apparently does to Canada, it's not the dealers fault.

I'm glad I didn't get an ABS now actually. First bike so I wanted to be safe, but I'm not so worried about it now that I've gotten real life braking experience.

My CBR 250R ABS (Red & Silver) was delivered to my home today while I was at work! I can't wait to great her wth, "Honey, I'm home!"

It has been a crazy ordeal with over two months of calling every Chicagoland dealership every week or two to try and locate my bike. Des Plaines Honda finally found one in Iowa and had it shipped and I withdrew my deposit from another dealer who provided zero help or information during my entire search. Danielle was my sales person and she was super great to work with!

Now I just need my gear to arrive in the mail and learn how to ride her... slow and easy with the shiny side up.

Ride smart all.
Curious, which dealership in IA?
