Default models with NO OEM pull start mechanism

This thread is of no real importance.... but I thought that I'd ask a question regarding a '13 800R E-tech 154 X that was absent a pull start.

I looked at a '13 800R E-tech the other day. It was fitted with electric start, but did not offer a manual pull start.
The right side panel did not even offer the area for the pull start handle.

Question: what was the reasoning behind this?

I have a 14 XM X estart, no pull start offered if you ordered estart. I since have installed pull start just in case, just keep the handle inside the panel if ever needed. Maybe someday I’ll cut the hole and install flange since it came with the pull start, hopefully never need it though.

Minimal weight savings, and of course $$$ saved by not installing pull start port, every lb. matters, apparently.

They could be pull started with a rope but it seems like you would have to leave the clutch cover off for the day. Don't see that going well with engine running.

It does suck. Just something to salvage the day and you get home and fix the problem.

I guess that you could always find a steep hill and bump start it!
