In Mexico, BS4 has no ABS (mine is carburated) :-/ , all that arrives here with ABS are FI.Not sure what you are asking. A BS4 already has ABS.
Are you referring to the first US EFI model ?
The US was the only country I am aware of that got the EFI model without ABS.
Ditto. I was jazzed to find a 2019 with less than 1500 miles because I dreaded getting the ABS model.It would probably be easier to sell and buy one with ABS. Probably cost the same with no challenge to overcome. Plenty of people who don't want ABS.
Mine doesn't have it and never wished I did.
I'm not sure I agree with your friend. The Himalayan is one of the most versatile of all the bikes out there. About the only place it struggles is highway travel and even there it'll hold 100km/hr all day. Mine certainly is asked to do everything (including commuting every day) and offers me the flexibility to turn down any road or track that takes my fancy.Thanks to all for your comments: I know on unpaved roads ABS is dangerous. I chose Hima for it engine reability , and here in Mexico, backroads are like India ( I think). Yesterday, again talking with a friend: "If you are not going to do off-road, think in change the bike". So, maybe as you say, its worth change on invest trying to fit it
Anyway, I think at least I´ll have front of me 1 year enjoying the Hima
