LOTS of motorcyclists will still tell you they're too good to need ABS, but all it takes is slippery conditions and a split second for many of them to be proved wrong. 

That's when ABS could save not just your skin but also someone else's, as demonstrated by this video. 

At one point the rider appears to momentarily lose the front, evidenced by the handlebars suddenly turning as the tyre slides, before the KTM 390 Duke's Bosch ABS steps in. 

Be honest. Could you have stopped more quickly or with more control by relying purely on your own skill and reactions in the same conditions? The Pulsar rider needs you to answer correctly.
