if does not work, check the abs sensor.

perhaps it might be possible to check error codes by pressing some buttons on a dash. Not sure here.

My bike has ABS marked on the front fender RH side.
Check if there is an ABS pump block under the rear of the tank.

Dekker is right. Or you could just go out and stamp on the rear brake at 30mph. If it skids take it back to the shop and ask them to fix it, if it doesn't, problem solved, you have abs

Definitely an abs model as I can see both wheel speed sensors in the picture. If it's not working bring it back to the dealer, easy to test by hitting the rear brake hard and seeing if it skids or pulses like it should as mentioned above.

Wheel speed sensors are not necessarily an indication of ABS they are required for traction control and speedo reading.

A lot of dealers made this mistake. As noted above, the wheel speed sensors are used for traction control as well. The easiest way to know if the bike has ABS, look at the dash. On the lower left, ABS models have a light. Non-ABS models have a blank space where the ABS light is.
