I have heard that the Scrambler will be hitting a similar price point to the smallest Monster. The smallest Monster goes for $9,995, so i would expect the Scrambler to have a similar price point. Especially since the two bikes will have the exact same 696cc engine.

I wouldn't pay $3,000 for ABS. I don't even think I would pay $1,500 for ABS. Maybe I would consider if it was just $1,000. That is a pretty hefty mark-up when you consider the bike's supposed cost in the first place.

I know what you mean it is a high mark up if that is the case. It should be more like an $800.00 option ;)

Anyone who does is out of their mind, maybe on a $20k bike but never something that will be within this price range

how come ABS isn't standard on bikes like it is on cars? Lock up on 2 wheels is one of the scariest things i've ever experienced. You lock the brakes on your car, ok bad, your still INSIDE. lock the brakes on your bike and well...

I doubt Scrambler shows up with ABS, not if they want to keep it cheap and true to history. But ABS could help to sell bikes to newbs...

the tech is still in it's new phase with bikes so it's not all that cheap, reason why it's optional for now. plus some guys don't want it or just don't feel like paying extra for some nanny system
