    Hi My name is Stef , male 51 years young from Broadstairs in Kent .
    I’m not good on forums but here we go.
    It’s 18 years since I last road a bike and am looking to buy a speed triple 1050 on the advise of a good mate of mine whom rides the tame BMW 1000 rr .
    I need a bike with ABS, could someone please tell me what year I need to be looking from. And any further info would be great .
    Thanks in advance.
    Stef.

    Welcome in Stef. IIRC all bikes over 125cc from 2016 must have it but it was probably an option before then on the 1050. Easiest way to tell is to look for the ABS rings front and rear on the brake discs;)
