    Hitler's Choice - Harley-Davidson Road King or Suzuki Hayabusa

    It has a good few 'inside' jokes from the forum I'm on, but lots of general jokes, too.

    Kawasaki vs Hayabusa

    Wrong. The Blackbird was built specifically to dethrone the KAWASAKI ZX-11 that was the fastest bike for 6 damn years running. It (the Blackbird) did so for a year, then the Busa blew them both away. (Including the ZX-12R, which allegedly had to be chopped down. [Probably a lie, but who...

    Kawasaki vs Hayabusa

    Engine tweaks an no appearance tweaks do not constitute a Gen. :P Well, not in my book, anyways. Yea, man. Things don't work that way these days. As much as we'd all love them to. The companies build a solid bike and tack little **** on to it and call it a Gen II (or 3, 4, 5 whatever.)...

    Kawasaki vs Hayabusa was Kawasaki supposed to do? Wait until a new Hayabusa came out and then release the 14R? Release it in 2012 silently or maybe only compared it to a 1999 Katana? The whole "It's only a little faster, therefore I can buy a 2008 Busa, slap some aftermarket on it and do that cheaper."...

    "Straight line bike"

    /rant Anyone else tired of this horse****? I don't own a Hayabusa, but my bikes forums crawl, due to the bike only being available for 4 years and not a great seller, so I thought I'd post here. (I'd like to own a Hayabusa one day in a few years.) I just got my new to me bike recently and am...

    What are hayabusas selling for?

    I'm just not understanding the 'It's priced at book' part. What book? NADA puts it at $5,750/$7,565 low and high retail and KBB puts it at $8250. ...and that's RETAIL. That is if you're buying it from a retail shop in your town. This is their guide that tells them how much to sell it for. Not...

    Busa Can't Handle........

    Valentino Rossi McOdonald Duck? Rosie O'donnell? Apparently this bike is a Goldwing. :poke: Glad I haven't bought mine yet. I don't want a Goldwing. :whistle:

    Hump Protector

    Doesn't help that the web site admin can't even spell. Kinda detracts from the product... I mean, if you want to sell your bike do you post it up in the forums using pig Latin, 1337 speak or gangsta rap? :poke:

    Sport Rider Magazine says K1300S > Busa

    ^The S1000RR is what you were thinking or the K1300S is what you were thinking? The K1300S is a BMW Busa/ZX-14. They've even said so. Long, 'Heavy' 1200+cc sport bike designed for liter~ish performance without the backaches, made to be ridden longer distances with greater comfort.

    Sport Rider Magazine says K1300S > Busa

    It's a proper comparo. You're thinking of the new BMW S1000RR. The K1300S isn't it. It's BMW's Hyperbike. As for futher numbers... Price of the BMW (as tested) $17,500. Busa $13,199 Weight 569wet - 583wet Quarter mile BMW 10.46@137.6 - Busa 9.96@145.8 Roll Ons BMW 60-80/2.71 sec - Busa...
