Tell difference ABS-non-ABS

Hi all, I'm new here. Just bought a 2011 CBR250R in Thailand. It's a CBR250R, it does not say RA. The document and the seller say it's ABS. How can I make sure it is ABS? Thanks.

Hi, I'd suggest the easiest way for you is to look at photo's of ABS bikes. There is a ring on the front hub which tells the sensor if the front hub is still turning or not. It's very obvious when you see one. ABS bikes will also have two hydraulic lines to the front brakes, non-ABS just the one.
Google search CBR250r ABS images. You'll see.

Pretty sure the caliper on the ABS model will have the brand name "Nissin" in white lettering on it, although that may be for recent models only.
I don't have ABS and there's no branding or logo on the caliper.
If I recall correctly, on the 2011 models (which I have) the ABS caliper or fender had "ABS" written in small lettering.

If it says "Combined ABS" on the front mudguard (fender) it's ABS. If not, you've been screwed.

It's pretty obvious, it says Combined ABS on the front fender and has 2 brake lines on the front brake calibre because 1 piston is controlled by the rear brake pedal. If you didn't see that, than your bike does not have Honda's C-ABS.

easy, ride pretty fast and smash the rear brake pedal like there's no tomorrow (front is optional ). If you go sliding out of control there's no ABS, if you feel shuddering on the rear pedal and you stay in control you've most likely got ABS

only joking, the pic above by i3017bgarcia maps it out pretty well. Also the ABS model will have a dash light on the opposite side of the high beam indicator light underneath the taco and speedo section (see pic) the non-ABS model doesn't have this

Thanks everyone. Confirmed. It is ABS. Thing is I am in Canada and my GF had the mandate to find a deal on a 250. Just wanted to make sure. 9000 km, like new, for 2,400 USD... Can't wait to get there and tour around SE Asia... Anyway, thanks for all the replies. This looks like a really good forom, good people.

That is why C-ABS model is infinitely better, you dont need to use the front brake in traffic.
