    Agreed , if I had the money (nearly 2L+ extra and if it had ABS) I'd have got the R3 instead of RC390 day one, the joy of owning a twin and the way that twin roars and pulls like a dream is something that is still respect even to date and look up-to inspite of owning a machine that produces almost the exact same power figures.

    But, you have to concur with me the way Yamaha has treated Indian market with R3 till now like a step-mother, that's what everyone is complaining here in the first place.
    They dint not give ABS as an option during launch while for rest of the while world had it and they thought it was a luxury option until Indian government made it mandate and then they had to wake up.

    With that regards I respect Honda, TVS, KTM, Bajaj for giving ABS from day 1 for their new gen bikes after 2010, either as option or standard on their bikes above 200cc+ bikes like CBR250R, Apache 180/200 4v, Duke/RC 390, RS200 and Dominar.

    A 100% agreement there Captain!!
    Yamaha India has treated us like the rich countries treat Somalia and Afghanistan.
    I'm sorry if that sentiment is not acceptable here but Yamaha India has been giving us second hand and beaten stuff.
    Bajaj-KTM is at the forefront of giving us opportunities to step up and TVS has joined that bandwagon for the greater good.
    At 4L+, R3 is a really expensive proposition no matter if its servicing is Rs. 100 per 1L kms.

    If ABS is not a deciding factor and if you are experienced rider, since you've already owned a CBR250R I am assuming you'll already know how to handle powerful bikes, please choose the R3 with eyes closed if the deal is good on the used bike.

    But if ABS is a make or break thing then better to save up for the new R3 w/ ABS or something similar with ABS Ninja 300.

    Personally I believe that once you are used to a non-ABS bike, even after switching to bike with ABS and revert back to non-ABS after few years, you'll still be able to ride the it with exact same caliber like before.

    Hope it helps, for your buying choice.
    Please update the same if you get hold the machine.

    Inserting video to watch on how the ABS helped a bit in the real jungle out there.

    The bikers were not speeding at just cruising speed with maintaining a safe distance, yet the Tempo in the front came to a stop so suddenly that it'd have been really difficult to bring the bike to stand still so soon even when riding sanely, I guess ABS did it's job in this situation.

    Experts can share their views.

    I've CBR 250r ABS n riding ir from Apr 2017. Before CBR I was ridingg Hero Honda Passion+ (2005) & Activa(2014). While riding both Passion n Activa; I had to be very cautious in sudden breaking. In few instances when I had to apply sudden braking, mostly both touched the other vehicles.
    But after buying CBR, I was saved many times in close calls. Only in 1 incident, my front wheel hit the rear guard of Maruti 800. I was fast n both vehicles were very close. This incident taught me that one couldn't rely only on ABS. So even after having ABS I drive carefully. I use my experience, judgement & imagine the scenario of the traffic. But when sometimes things r out of control then surely ABS would help me, just like sudden breaking of the vehicle ahead of u.
    Also I drove frnd's Bajaj NS 200 which had single channel ABS. I rode it on my routine route. But it's rear wheel locked n skid while I used sudden breaking to slow down. I never faced it on my CBR.
