    Well I had a V-rod before buying my Busa and all it had under the seat was a gas tank!! Very reliable bike but quintessentially the Anti-Harely...

    Sport bikes are for speed and agility.
    Scooters are for close commuting.
    Harleys are for... show.

    a Harley is actually worth something after you drive it for a few years and get sick of it and sell it..... which is more then I can say for most sport bikes. Harleys hold their value.

    OP,
    You're new here and may not know that a few Busa owners also ride Harleys. I have been here for a few years and have come to expect the regular Harley bashing (jokingly or not). In case you suspected, yes I do have a Harley (pic below is my 3rd). Having owned both sportbikes and Harleys for the past 20+ years now, IMHO neither is better than the other

    LOL Kromdom, I own a Harley as well and enjoy it, but for the life of me cannot figure out why. I guess it is like comparing a Porche to a Pick-Up truck when it comes to comparing a Busa to a Harley, but then when it comes to the Harley class, there are more options available such as BMW, or Goldwings for those who enjoy a convertible car on two wheels. For the latter, their motors, suspension and brakes are in a totally different class, compared to Harley.

    Harley sells better than anything else, even in Japan, so the motor company is doing what is right for its shareholders. But, I'm just a simple Engineer and if I look at the technology that goes into a Harley, I still shake my head. Yet, I enjoy riding mine, there is just something special about them.

    As far as service and reliability goes, I will do a complete 5,000 mile service on the Harley, everything in the book, in less time than it takes to do an oil filter change on a GenII Busa. Harley seems to have sorted that out pretty well.

    Even though HD are dominating the NHRA Pro Stock world I don't really care for them. I don't think they have a street bike that can run with the busa and are way to pricy for my taste. For some reason most of the people that ride them think the world revolves around them. Now I cant blame the bike for that but if you talk to the same people when not on or around the bikes they are really different people. Or, Maybe its just me they don't like

    I think it's funny when folks say Harleys hold their value. If you pay 27000 for a bike and sell it 5 years later for 21,000, did it hold its value more than paying 13000 for a sport bike and selling it for 7000. On a percentage yes but in real world dollars in my wallet no!

    We have a hard over Harley rider in our office (It's the only bike and all others suck) and I can say I have over 19000 miles on my bike in 2 years and he has less than 10000 on his. So far he has had his shifter pedal fall off, had to deactivate the automatic shut down of the rear cylinder due to pinging (they couldn't fix it), had it remapped twice for altitude and had to replace a sensor on the primary because it was leaking oil. So far on my bike its been oil and tires and air filter without a hiccup. Besides, I can go really, really fast!

    I was seriously considering a brand new Ultra Classic for two up riding with the wife and am now considering a BMW or Used Gold wing due to the problems he's had. Although one might consider them minor, I think if you spend that much, it should run perfectly.

    You do realize that they give harley almost twice the displacement of a jap bike and add weight to the jap bikes as well just to give them a chance...I would like to see someone go buy some aftermarket parts and build a 600 HP harley and ride it through city traffic
