if it does that on the CB500X, its different than on the latest gen of CBR600rr.
Its so close to seamless on the new RR bikes, its not noticeable. Honda put a lot of time and effort on the combined braking ABS and it works very well.
On the street, ABS is a must in my books. One reason I didn't get a GSXR 750 is that even the latest models do not come with it, even at all. Same price as my CBR600rr, and obviously faster in a straight line by a great deal, but the lack of abs, and the "tubbiness" were the big reasons I went for the Honda.
I ride in an area with less than perfect roads, and I also live in an area where you can (mostly) ride year round. But wet, mud, leaves, grass clippings, sand, dust, gravel, manure etc can all make a ride just a bit to exciting for me.
Admittedly, I am a newer rider, but I still think that on two wheels, and on the street at least, a GOOD ABS system is a positive thing. I have been driving for decades, and with high performance cars, and with some track experience. I would take a car that was like the GSXR750 with no abs, but not as a daily driver.
All of the latest superbikes have it. All the reviews of them state that it makes for faster lap times even on the track. On the street its almost a no brainer, but there will be many that disagree.
Oh, if you think your bikes ABS is not as good as it should be, maybe something is wrong with part of it? I've had cars with ABS that I wanted to disable, but it turned out that something was off with other parts. Fixed that and it was cosher.
