Decode VIN to check for ABS ??

Before you smarty pantses tell me to brake check and find out... I'm asking for bikes that I'm going to look at buying.

Is it possible to decode the VIN to see if it has ABS?
Is there anything visible on the bike?

A surprising few sellers don't know if theirs have ABS or not...

I don't want it.

not sure about VIN, but it'll say ABS on the front wheel fairing. And there'll be the ABS sensor next to the caliper.

One more detail is the presence of an ABS fuse. So if you open up the fuse box, and theres an empty slot - then its a non ABS bike.
