I would never buy a bike without ABS, It has saved me a couple times I know of and likely many times I didn't know of.

One time a deer ran across a road in front of my buddy and I on a trip, we were both going 70mph+, he was on a BMW and I was on the Goldwing.

Both of us have ABS and stopped without an issue, then we noticed the road covered with a light silt like sand that for sure would have sent us both down.

If you drive on perfectly clean and dry road you probably don't need ABS.
