Dumb Question-1199S vs 1199s ABS

I just picked up my bike. The manual print 2 version 1199s and 1199s w/ ABS. How do I know which 1199s is with ABS or not?

Thanks in advance

Switch it on and look at the dash. If there is an abs setting at the bottom it's abs, if not then it isn't. Alternatively take it on a dirt road, slam on the brakes and see what happens

look down behind the fairing between the tank and the exhaust and see if there's a cover saying ABS on it...

Look at the front wheel if there is a roster-like ring near the axle, thats part of the abs system.

Non abs has the ring on the front wheel too. Its used as part of the traction control input too.

Best way is to look for the pump behind the right side fairing. You'll see the high pressure lines running to it. The pump is mounted directly above the vapor cannister.

Also, I think that one of the digits in the serial number represent ABS and non-ABS. Thought I read that somewhere.

Yeah, whats up with that, Dealer could not tell you?
There's a $1000.00 premium for the ABS if i'm not mistaken.

How does that happen?

You buy a bike asking for the base and you pay base msrp, get it home, and then you start to wonder if your bike has abs standard or not. Lots of people buy cars and have no idea their car has abs (almost always included at no extra charge) so my response would be if you didn't ask for it on the 1199 (and the dealership is most honest), you probably don't have it. I don't think bikes are being sold as non-abs versions, are they? You have bikes and you have bikes with abs and if there's no discussion about the different models, how would the ordinary consumer know?
