Piaggio has some 'interesting' ways of complying with regs...
The location of the carbon can on some models (like Griso) for one.
The horrible Stelvio USA mirrors for another.

It is possible to outfit a Griso with ABS, but they are going to have tweak a lot of things to get it to fit somewhere. I'm sure it can be done. Griso fills a large gap in the line for it to 'go away' without a replacement.

I'm sure the Griso name isn't dead yet. I would welcome a slightly larger version with optional cast wheels and nose fairing. The 1200 Sport is finished so a ABS Griso with a bit more long distance potentional wouldn't go a miss.

What would you like to have "larger" in a Griso?  Other than fuel tank capacity, my wish would be for things to be "smaller".

Mainly smaller wheelbase and smaller weight.  

As for "optional cast wheels", you have the option of sourcing cast wheels from the Norge/Breva/early Griso and bolting them right on.

A strong argument could be made that the Griso is due, if not over due, for a make over. Taking that opportunity to add ABS to a next generation Griso makes sense (or making ABS mandatory a good excuse to come out with the next major redo for the Griso).

I guess it will be up to the market if that second generation Griso fills the shoes of the first. Or would this be the third generation? I guess that depends on how radical the redo is. If it is really different; drop the Griso name and come up with a new model.

I'm just a simple construction worker but the thought hit me;  Where does the Stelvio NTX have the ABS pump?

Couldn't a little redesign of the airbox provide the room in the Griso?

Not sure which generation it would be but I believe there is a Centauro in the first generation.

The pump is under the fuel tank on the Stelvio. The tank design is slightly different on the Griso and there isn't much room under there. The frames of both bikes are very similar, but the tank is not.

Sure you can mount an abs somewhere but not invisible without redesign.

The Stelvio has ecu and electrics tucked in the fairing. These parts have found a place somewhere else in the griso.  Where the griso has the ecu, is the stelvio ABS.  The ABS unit is about 3 inches square.

Here is my design brief:

Stick the horns out in the breeze and reshape the wings to accommodate the ABS.  

Piaggio can send me a check at the usual address or Paypal is fine...

They could put it where the Stelvio has it and redesign the tank. This could be good or bad.
