Looks like the C-14 had her mufflers cloned... twice. Exhaust only an Engineer would love. At least with 2 of them, they balance the bike better.

Well I think I will have a new addition in my garage. I will get one once it hits the dealership. I think they have addressed areas that Kaw did'nt like the overheating problem associated with big engines. I have been told by the fellas back home that when they stretch their 14s they overheat and when they hit breaks the freaking drain plug gets knocked off the oil pan. Kaw SUCKS AZZ!

You're killing me dude. That's the dumbest shit I've ever heard. Busa are notorious for over-heating, not 14's. Nice try!

BTW, I'll spank that Busas ass the first chance I get, I can't wait to pull up next to one. The day can't come fast enough.

Talking about the new one dude!!!!!!!!!! Hell you don't even know how they perform yet. Hey maybe Suzuki will take a 14 out here in the desert without anyone knowing and Spank it like Kaw did with the old Busa.lol Point blank Kaw talks big sh#t, let's see if they can back it up.

i think it will be a good match. Bikes close in the power department. I still bet the kaw handles and rides better than the busa. Also it will come down to the gearing of both bikes. It will be good to see.

I'm glad they did just minor updates too the bodywork and retained the busa character like the looks or not and some angles i'm not luving yet but its stock!

I don't keep anything stock and you can't argue the proven aero's - this one looks slippier


I'm sure its choked like the 14 is stock . Spec sheet looks great with the ti valves, extra cr, more stroke, better fuel injection and yes I know the stock pipe few will like but few will ever keep a stock exhaust on any bike.


Change the pipe be like the 12's and 14's gobs of extra hp just waiting to be uncorked.

If anything, it will make boards a love/hate daily ritual with the sure to come 1340 vs 1352 battles but than again Bikeland has that nifty personal ban function so I can enjoy what I do most no matter the brand or displacement the mods and results!


Now we need Yamaha too come out with a kick ass chain drive V-Max and Honda with an updated Blackbird-I know wishfull thinking

It looks like Suzuki Said to Kaw, "we can design something that's indistinguishable from the ZX-14 in performance and just as ugly if not uglier. -Great job creating a chocolate to compete against the vanilla...

I previously owned a 99 'busa and had hoped to get a new one to be a stable-mate for my ZX. Now I think I'll see if I can buy a cheap, used 'busa off of someone who wants this new one to park in my garage...

You are right, I am just guessing based on some stats. I would honestly be surprised if it does beat the 14. Forget about the 14 for a momet, the 08 Busa may have to watch out for the 07gsxr.

Slipper clutch
Good luck catching me after I leave you sitting at the line.
That clutch sucks ass for drag racing.

I suspect that it will be a close match to the 14. They will both be running very close to the same displacement now. It will be up to the rider. Let the smack begin!!! LOL

I agree with you Teddy but the only thing I can't figure out is, since the old Busa already beats the 14, then this new one should smash it.
