ABS or Non ABS

I am about to buy a used 2016 GSX S1000 but not sure whether the bike has ABS.
How can I check for this without riding and slamming on the brakes?

It should have abs printed on the front Fender, also you can tell with the brakes rotors and lines front and rear plus abs light on the dash.

when you turn the ignition on you if you see a ABS icon light up with the other icons it has ABS.

Man I wouldn't buy a new bike without ABS. Between my 2 bikes which both have it, the ABS saved my a$$ a few times.

Same here. ABS is worth the $500. If it saves you once you are probably ahead of the game.

The dealer tried (unintentionally?) to screw me when I bought my bike. I said that I had to have an ABS naked model. Color wasn't important. They were all set to sell me a grey model and started the paperwork. While waiting I noticed online that all of the ABS models that year were blue and black. It also didn't have the ABS sticker on the fender. It did have the speed rings on the rims but was for the TC. Short story is what I thought was a good price really wasn't because it didn't have ABS. I ended up ordering an ABS model and we spit the difference in price for the ABS upgrade.
