I have finaly managed to narrow down my search for my next bike to just 3, however the one I'm most interested in is a 2008 model without ABS were the other 2 are later models with ABS, is it worth trading ABS for a tricky red colour and shiny chrome or is ABS such an advantage!.

ABS... better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I had reservations about ABS on a motorcycle at first. I am glad I made the choice to get it myself. I would not want another bike without it.

The ABS bikes you are looking at may not have the nice red paint, but with ABS the paint they have has a better chance of staying nice.

Thanks for your responses guys, after all your input and especially after watching the video the custom paint job can wait and I'm sold on ABS. Cheers

I have it on a 2010 VRSCAW. Made one panic stop and while I was too scared or distracted to feel/remember the pulsing, she stopped straight and upright.

ABS - I traded from a 2006 to a 2008 to get the ABS! I've used it a few times...
