While the stickers may be removed, there is no way around the ABS sensor rings. Without them, ABS can't function. The rings, sensors, pump housing behind the shock and ABS light on the speedo are all required. Those web site pics are mislabeled as were others directly from Suzuki. The bikes are not ABS. Here's a 2007 ABS bike and fiches showing rings #7 rear and #4 front. Sorry for the size but I think it needs to be clear beyond doubt.
While I like having abs, it's most certainly not required. I've ridden well over 100k miles and this is the first bike I've owned that had abs on it. (btw, have 500 miles on this one) It's nice to have, but I certainly wouldn't reject a bike because it didn't have it.
