    You do not have to be riding at high speeds to benefit from ABS Pro.
    If a deer jumps in front of you in a curve I would think ABS Pro would help even at moderate speeds.

    If you do the math, lean angles of 20 degrees or less have very little side vector component...so the ABS Pro mod algorithm would be either identical to the standard ABS or only very slightly less interventionist. My speculation (math based) is that the ABS pro mod algorithm does not kick in to around 30 degrees of lean and has most effect on lean angles of 40 degrees or more. i.e. well leaned over in the curve.

    Sliding from a down side scrub off speed fast and also most often separate you from the bike. Injuries from the bike are often significant.
    Note good but often much better than crashing in to the side of the road on the bike.
