They didn’t introduce ABS & TCS until the 2018 model so it hasn’t got those thank goodness.
It hasn’t got a key unfortunately. It’s keyless.
Well, ABS is well worth having and TCS probably is (never noticed it working on the Tmax yet) and they are pretty established tech these days. I'm not so sure about the Keyless ignition systems though!
I'm always searching for the Off button on my old Tmax and searching for a key slot on the 2017 model!!!

If mine wasn't keyless I might not keep leaving the key in the topbox!

Well, I couldn’t wait for the BMW c400x, impatient sod that I am!
So I’ve ordered a 2017 Peugeot Metropolis from 3X motorcycles. New and unregistered. Went to see it the other day and that was it! Had to have it. It’s got the 13” wheels, no abs, no traction control thank goodness. Too many electronic gubbins on bikes for my liking these days.
Can’t wait. Should be here in a couple of weeks!
Is it Euro 4 approved?

2018 model is. Peugeot are planning a big comeback and the Satellis 400 is a worthy consideration at 5K

My keyless key will be staying on a chain attached to my belt.

I’ve had loads of bikes with ABS and all I remember is the hassle the BMWs gave me. 2 1150 GSs I just stripped it out and rode without it. The only one I trust and like is my present NC750X but there have been times when I wished I could turn it off.
TCS is an unnecessary nonsense. We soon won’t need a brain to ride bikes. One of my mates dumped his C650 scoot when the TCS kicked in at slow speed. He’s turned it off since.

Don’t know about that but it doesn’t matter to me anyway.
The only other thing I would wish for is bigger wheels coz of the pot holes around these Devon roads.

Then you should have bought the later version with 15" wheels, but of course that has useless gubbins on it as well like ABS and TCS.
