I was in the same boat being a new rider and all.... So I asked a bunch of experienced riders. The consensus said basically the abs was good if I planned on riding through rainy weather (I'm not, this is just a commuter/rec bike for me. I purchased the non-abs.)

But also I saw a bunch reviews on how pressing the rear brake also applies the front brake, and even causing the front of the bike to dive down - which may not be a big deal to a new biker, but to experienced cats, this is the opposite. Non-abs rear brake application should cause the rear to sit down more... And I know that in curves and turns if you HAVE to apply brakes, the front is a no-no.

I heard also that stopping distance is greater with abs.

Anyways, my 2 cents with what I've heard and researched myself. Good luck on your 1st purchase!
