Other than the two pounds mentioned in the trans, the weights are the same. Some regular bikes don't have abs either. IIRC, that adds 9lb. The Sport shocks are a bit heavier, about a pound between the two of them. The ones with the 5.5" rims also pick up weight vs the 5.0 shod ones. Not sure if any are lighter by more than two pounds than a 99 with small battery/low-output-alternator, and 5.0 rim.

The latest lose two pounds in the tranny, but pick up a half pound or so in the ignition. The sports are all heavier than the non-abs regular ones.

In short, feature for feature, the weights are the same. Remember, they're all the basic same bike, plus minus an inch in the shocks or paralever, or a half inch in the rear wheel. The only significant difference is rideheight and abs vs non abs.
