Still waiting on further info... The dash has an ABS light on it and there are sensors on the wheel hubs, so it has a basic ABS at least. I have not seen anything that leads me to believe it has an IMU, cornering ABS, nor traction control.

So far it seems like the R7 is a rendering of what a lot of us hoped the SV650S would have evolved into. There are patents that reveal Suzuki is also working on a new twin. We shall see what they come up with.

Glad I have my R7 order in place. My gut feeling is that Suzuki will come up with something competitive and good, but be a bit late to the party.

Here's what Cycle World had to say about the R7's ABS.

And as there were a lot of quick corner entries, it’s a good thing the bike had the strong stopping power of dual Advics four-piston calipers and 298mm discs up front. The YZF-R7 is fitted with a Brembo radial front master cylinder, although feel at the lever struggles to precisely communicate brake pressure. Nonswitchable ABS comes standard and seems to have been calibrated for a balanced level of intrusion, though it did hinder outright stopping performance when rolling serious laps.
