That's just how Yamaha configured the models. I'm an old school GenX rider, so have not had ABS yet. One day, but I'm more interested in traction control. I understand the desire for it though. Anyway, maybe you could special order? I don't know how hard it would be to get a blue Non-ABS R3, and get the ABS parts to put on it. I don't know if there are any electronics and ECU ramifications dealing with ABS on the bike. It is probably possible though.
Are you dead set on the blue? I have a 2015 Raven R3, and love the glossy black, but am also a fan of all the R3 colors especially the 2016 matte grey, and the new 2017 matte black and gray/white/yellow. The color shouldn't be the only issue preventing you from buying. If that is a 150cc bike, it'll be a huge difference between it and the R3. I do highway riding, and 300 is about the smallest displacement I would recommend for any riding of that type. You could always buy the white R3, and get a custom paint job, but that would be additional money. Just spitballing here. Good luck with your decision.
Oh, and that R15 is slick looking. I think due to the smaller engine and bike, and associated costs, they were able to spruce up some of the aesthetics to make it a bit "racier." The new Honda 250 is analogous to it in that way-it looks like a professional MotoGP race bike.
