PS does anyone know if ABS prevents you from doing an endo when you slam the front brake, or does it just keep it from sliding out?
You can endo with ABS, just not a long controlled endo as the brakes will try to level it out. I've flipped over the bars on my old '13 with ABS in a race, so it's possible to lift pretty high.

ABS is great at helping in a panic or in mixed traction (wet, sand, gravel) but it's no miracle worker - there's only so much it can do to prevent a slide.

ddipaola Side note: 16K is a little steep for an RR. There's not 1 but 2 for sale in my area selling for 14 or less with the same mods and nearly the same miles. If the OP offered ya $13500 I would work something out.

In terms of ABS/noABS... If you've been riding for 10+ years then maybe you'll use it, maybe you wont. ABS is only going to assist in emergency braking situations to prevent you from getting bucked off or lowsiding.

dantzx10r Iíve been riding for 10+ years on 600ís and 1000ís. This would just be the first bike with abs. I Didnít know if the price difference was worth it thatís all.

scout No abs if you have super riding experience. You don't have experience judging by your question and supporting riding evidence, perhaps abs. idk. 600 might be best option.

Here's the point: noobs can't turn the bike; the bike reads the rider and simply wants him off; bike doesn't trust the rider.

Code's Twist Wrist II helps on this problem.
