There's are a lot of opinions, up and down, about ABS. Opinions aside, ABS is supposed to prevent the wheel from locking up when you hit the brakes. Isn't that how you normally want to come to a stop anyway?
For street riding, that's a safety feature I wish they had on the Vee. Without ABS I have to rely on my braking skills, which are by no means as accurate as a computer.
My experience when I asked this question at the dealership was kind of funny. If they had an ABS model in stock...yeah, ABS was what you wanted to buy. If they didn't have an ABS model in stock...the salesman tried to explain how the non-ABS was just as good.
