canbus electrical system on 2019?

Does the 2019 1000XT (or even the 650) have the canbus electrical system. I am thinking about the 1000 and I have heard that the canbus electrical system makes it very hard to hook up any electrical accessories. Friends of mine with the new Honda Goldwing are having fits with this. Please let me know, so if I purchase either of these bikes I would be very cautious when purchasing accessories. Thanks you.

No. It's a plain electrical system, no fancy CAN bus system.

Thanks Cambion. "not fancy" works great for me. Appreciate the quick response. I have my right foot in a walking cast now (happened in the house, not on the bike) but will be looking when I heal.

Not sure why the Goldwing owners would be having trouble with CanBus wiring and hooking up accessories?

There is a right way and a wrong way do do stuff. Especially with electrical work. There are available electrical solutions to adding accessories to any CanBus system.

The absolute beauty of CanBus is its ability to diagnose compared to standard switching networks.

easily solves with a PDF 60 or Neutrino black box power distribution module.

I am installing the latter on my 2018 XT and will eventually write a report
