I think you made a good move with the Silverwing. Had one of the first 2002 Silverwings sold in the US. Kept it until 2014, drove it all over the U.S. (Loved Route 66), had over 100,000 miles until it started having engine problems. I bought a 2009 650, wasn't that happy with the bike (the wing drove more like a sporty bike) and traded it in after 10 months for a 2016 650 which is much more like driving the wing.
My 2002 did not have ABS but the newer models do have it. The one thing that the Silverwing did have was dual braking system when you pressed the rear brake lever. That is, if you hit the rear brake it engaged a portion of both brakes giving you much better control.
