I just spent three weeks solving this problem. The 2011s don't have ABS but have just about every accessory imaginable. The 2012s do have ABS but very few accessories. The 2012s were not shipped to the US. The dealers that sold them in the US got them from dealers outside the US, not directly from Triumph. 2013s are being shipped directly to US dealers but they too are stripped and do not have ABS. All three years had the same MSRP for the bikes in black (16999). Trying to figure out the logic in what Triumph is trying to do is impossible. I just found a new 2012 with ABS and will have to add the accessories (longhaul seat, both backrests, luggage rack, engine guard, auxiliary lights). It is definitely not cheap, although still less expensive than a Road King. It is the bike I wanted and it took a lot of searching and more money than I anticipated.
