hopefully not too far off-topic but for '08 I am very anxious to see if Honda redesigns the litre bike like they did that 600RR.... if so look out. Hopefully Bikeland will find out and write




imho only bike honda ever had as a contender on the street is xx1100...

they never competed well in the 600 class until '07, that one is smokin' 'em all by leaps and bounds. I'm wondering if the same will happen in the litre bike category

1.) ...they will sell like hot-cakes.

2.) If they aren't as fast as the 14, the owners will still revert back to 1999.

3.) The ass looks like crap.

4.) If its fast, ugly don't matter.

5.) The aftermarket will embrace this new busa a thousand times faster than the 14.

6.) If it is a monster like the predictions, there will be plenty of used, scratched, scuffed and stolen parts on ebay.

7.) The magazines will be slanted on all the 'busa vs.14' ...suzi is much better at Marketing the Bu$a.

8.) Not skeeered.

9.) the busa owners will never be able to keep their mouths shut.

10.) I'd sport it.

Mods, any chance we can lock the other 'New Busa' threads? I'd hate to see the forum cluttered up with a bunch of different busa threads.

I like the orange and black. But I wouldn't buy it...it looks the same. Boring styling to me.

All BS aside I'd get one also. Because suzuki builds some good shyt.
Maybe after a few years when some better colors come out.

Hello Guys Im new here. Have been keeping track with all the new post faithfully though.
I think that the new CLOSED-LOOP System will help them out especially in the tuning dept, but I still have my faith on the 14!!!!!

Same old body style IMO.
Wish they would have done spomething spectacular with the asthetics...
11 % more HP means about 172 RWHP, as the older ones typically dyno'd out about 154 RWHP.
Just a very slight edge over the zx14.
Since it now has a cat, i would think it will pull similar results with a pipe as the 14 has.

I see no obvious reason to sell my 14, except the busa engine already developed, and a ton of cheap parts becoming available... still a conventional case, and cylinder block arrangement, rather than the monoblock
