How do you tell the difference in the ABS vs Non-ABS just by looking at the bike? Is there a different caliper or something?
There is a second ring just inside of the brake rotor that is used to measure/sense the wheels rotation rate. If rotation is stopped, and the bike is moving, that wheel is "locked" by the brakes and the ABS releases it.
