I getting answers both ways on this question so I thought I would ask here. Did the '04 St4s ABS come with saddlebags standard or were they optional?

I thought bikes came standard with the bikes sold in USA. Mine came with it in 05.

(Allikanbe: I took the liberty of correcting your typo when quoting you.)

Correct as far as ST models sold in the US since at least 2001, the year of my first ST.
Yet another reason to fill in the user profiles. We have no idea where the person who orignally asked the question resides.

The bags coming standard helped me decide on getting my '04 ST4s. I was looking at either an '05 Triumph Sprint or the Duc. Triumph had the better base price but wanted an extra $1K for what turned out to be really crappy bags.

My '04 bike came with saddle bags. I was looking at the Sprint too but I wanted the bags, not that I've put them on yet! lol

I don't use mine much, but when I need them they are wonderful to have. For daily riding/commuting I just use a small tank bag. For weekend trips the bags are awesome.

ST Bags

Camplatz, All STs sold in the US since MY 2000 are supposed to be sold w/bags. Of course I bought a '99 & had to spend $800. on bags (1st ST). Oh well, I just had to have it! Gregg

Saddle bags

Thanks guys. It is a USA bike. The dealer's service manager had two Ducati boxes in his office. He didn't know what they were for. Now he knows. I apparently got the last new dry clutch red St4 in the USA.
