That's not how you tell it has ABS. Even most salespeople don't know this!

These bikes have speed sensors (notched disks) on both front and rear which is used for traction control. Both ABS & Non-ABS have them.

The quickest way to tell is look at the front wheel fender "(KIBS)" is Kawasaki Intelligent Anti-lock Break System. Secondly, simply turn the key on and you will see the orange ABS light illuminate in the dash which stays on until you start moving the bike.

This is really important to look for. Look at this pic.

Is the front wheel sensor ring on the left side as you are sitting on the bike?

When you get a chance to show us the headlights, that would be appreciated. I've heard a fair amount of negative comments, with the 13+ bikes. I have zero complaints about the '09 OEM lights I have now. Best light I have had on any motorcycle I have owned, a also better than many of the '60-70's cars I drove in my youth.

I've never heard anyone NOT complain about any sport bike headlights

Perception and expectations change with experience and point of reference.

I drove a '63 VW bug as the first car I bought for myself. 6 volt electrical system. 27 hp, new. That was a good thing, as it wouldn't go fast enough to over run the light from those weak lamps. Not much better than a kerosene lantern, tbh.

Fast forward to the '14 Corolla, w/LED low beams. Great light, but that cut off line really messes with your ability to see distant objects of you can't go to high beams.

That's another reason I wanted the '19 model.

Pic 2 Bike running (normal headlight)
Pic 3 Bike running (high beams)

So it has both sides lit, on low as well as high beam..... nice. More curious about how much light they throw on the road. If you are willing when you end up out on the road at night, pull over somewhere dimly lit and show us what the low and high patterns look like. I know cameras don't show as much of what you can see with your eyes, the auto correct tends to mute things a bit.

They are very bright at night. No visibility problems.

Is there anyone else who purchased 2019 model here on this forum? I would like to know what was your OTD price you've paid. I am about to buy 2019 KRT edition and I would really appreciate the input from you guys on how much I should pay for it here in Los Angeles, California.
