Default 2012 XC has ABS standard

http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-.../features.aspx

I figured this would be the big change in the bike for 2012.

2011 Victory Cross Country
2008 Yamaha Vstar 650 Classic
2007 Yamaha Virago 250 (only had her for 60 days)

I wonder if they will come out with a kit to retro fit ABS to previous model years? Still, considering that I saved at least $2k buying a left over 2010 than waiting for a 2012 I'm still happy with my purchase

You guys jumped the gun and didn't read carefully - happens, in the mids of all this excitement. The ABS is for the XC touring, which has a different MSRP ($22k) than the regular XC ($19k).

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

I was wrong! The XC and XR now do have ABS standard.

Oh ya, you're right, CR. The Standard XC and XR has ABS brakes but they start at $1000 more than last year. I bet the ABS is the reason.

The XR LE has ABS as well. Don't see a price on them yet. Lots of other good stuff on it besides the cool paint job.

I'm more confused than I was before....
Yes, the XR starts at $15,995 (a grand more than last year) and does have ABS. It's here: http://www.polarisindustries.com/en-.../features.aspx - see feature #4. Funny how it's not listed in the "features" section, but it's listed on those major points.

To me, ABS is not worth upgrading, but the really good news is that when they do start making a white XR (hopefuly 2013), I will get it with ABS!

Hehehe...you were writing the same time I was correcting my post.

And you can always paint the one you have if they want you to take too much of a loss if you do decide to trade it in.

Has anyone seen a price on the XC LE yet? CR: Did you notice they have a Hard Fairing for the XR now (about $900 I think).

I'm really liking this two tone red and silver graphic XC.

The Ness XC and Vision both look really good. I think I like this Ness XC better than the 2011 only because I'm more partial to blue.
